V-6 Twin turbo
M14 supercar concept from 2004 was equipped with a 400 bhp twin-turbo
3 litre V6 unit allowing the car to accelerate to 60 mph in
4.3 seconds and rocket all the way up to 190 mph.
Noble have proved themselves as a quality sports car company
with the Noble M12, and it
shouldn't be too hard to convince the public that a much modified
Ford Mondeo engine is capable of supercar performance when combined
with a plastic (possibly later carbon
fiber) body and steel space frame chassis.
The Noble M14 is intended to compete with the likes of the Lamborghini Gallardo, Porsche
911 and Ferrari F430 when it goes into production.
The head designer Lee Noble said of the M14 " We aim to
catch an entirely new audience with this model, one that cares
as much about the grade of leather used in the cabin as how
fast the car will accelerate to 100 mph. We also anticipate
that M14 buyers will demand 'jump-in-and-drive' convenience,
without any sacrifice in exclusivity or sophistication. I'm
satisfied these criteria have been met without any compromise."
The production version of the M14 was called the Noble M15.
