British supercar maker Noble has revealed the first image of its Noble M600 Roadster design study.

The image was mocked up by the Leicester-based firm as a design exercise only and there are currently no plans to put the Roadster into production. 

Managing director Peter Boutwood did, however, tell Autocar that an M600 Roadster was “not completely out of the question” if the demand was there. 

“We could see it being popular in China”, Boutwood added.

Power for the coupe supercar comes courtesy of a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 unit, which delivers 650bhp at 6800rpm and 1.0bar of pressure, and 604lb ft of torque at 3800rpm. The sprint to 62mph is dispatched in 3.5sec and top speed achieved at 225mph.

If the Roadster variant were to make production it would be based on the current £200k M600 coupe model, making the drop-top one of the fastest and most powerful convertibles in the world.

The engine appears to be very nice.

Such a powerful car, the Chinese people will like it.

Go on then, i dare you!....nobody yet has produced a good looking roadster,there always design cues from other cars, can't any designer do this?

Can we deduce from this that the coupe version is selling well? If so, then considering they priced the car at £200k, that is some achievement. One that I didn't expect!

    It’s a warm welcome to this steaming hot hatch. But is it too fiery for Britain’s roads?
  • Aston Martin DB11 Volante
    The DB11 Volante chassis' torsional rigidity is 22kN/deg, down from 34kN/deg on the coupe – but substantially more than the 14.7kN/deg of the DB9 Volante

    19 February 2018
    The DB11 Volante is the first convertible variant of Aston Martin's new model generation. How does it compare to the likes of the new Ferrari Portofino?
  • BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo front
    The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo

    The top-of-the-line 6 Series Gran Turismo has arrived in the UK, but does a more potent engine increase its unusual appeal?
  • Audi TT RS Coupé
    First Drive
    16 February 2018
    The Audi TT RS has the looks, a vociferous engine and the supercar-baiting performance, but is it too uncompromising to use as a daily driver?
  • Range Rover Velar front quarter
    The new Range Rover Velar P300 features a four-cylinder petrol engine
    First Drive
    16 February 2018
    JLR’s most powerful four-pot isn’t the engine the Velar truly wants but perhaps the one that makes most sense
