7 May 2004

A new, even more hardcore Noble has arrived. The M400 - named after its power to weight ratio - gets an incredible 21 per cent power boost from the same 3.0-litre Ford V6 used in other models; that takes it to 425bhp, and torque is up 11 per cent to 390lb ft. Prices are also boosted, putting the M400 at £61,995 - almost £10k above the M12 GTO-3R.

Developed as a track-day tool, the M400 features enlarged side air scoops for better engine cooling, bigger front air-intakes and a track-day oil sump with larger capacity.

  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
