The Noble M600 is the fastest and most powerful model ever produced by the small British manufacturer.

Developed from the still-born Noble M14 concept and short lived M15 model, the M600 features similar styling, although underneath the bodywork is a completely new drivetrain and engineering.

The M600 is the first vehicle from Noble to feature a V8 engine. To be precise it is a longitudinally-mounted 4.4 litre V8 equipped with twin Garrett turbochargers. The Motec ECU can be switched between three different levels of power. 450, 550 or 650 can be extracted from the engine depending on the drivers needs. In the 650 hp configuration the engine develops 604lb-ft of torque at 3,800rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox from Graziano. This drivetrain gives the Noble M600 a 0-60 mph time of just 3.0 seconds and an impressive 225 mph top speed.

Noble have gone the other route compared with other supercar manufacturers and decided to make the M600 as focused as possible around the drivers skills. To achieve this they have decided to omit any electronic stability aids or anti-lock braking. The vehicle is however equipped with a traction control system. This system is activated or deactivated using the missile launch switch from a Tornado fighter aircraft.

To explain their decision to keep the M600 as a back-to-basics supercar Noble explained; "The ethos of the M600 has developed from a small team passionate about driving. This ethos has evolved from our research of the available 'supercars' many of which lean heavily on computer assistance. The use of fashionable, but often inefficient paddle shifts, over assisted brakes and inopportune traction control have all become standard features of the modern supercar."

They continued; "We at Noble think it is time to break the mould, feeling that this now ubiquitous 'digital' driver assistance disengages the driver experience and reward. We have often encountered, when turning off these devices, that computer generated support can often cosmetically mask and flatter inferior chassis and handling characteristics."

The M600 is based around a steel tube spaceframe with a stainless steel central tub for the passenger compartment. The bodypanels are formed from lightweight carbon-fibre. The mid engined layout creates a 40/60 percent front/rear weight distribution.
