The new Noble M600 is to be built in the UK and will go into production before the end of the year, Autocar can reveal.
The company has been carrying out final testing on the braking system (which will not feature ABS) at the Bruntingthorpe test track before signing off the car. A production-ready prototype will arrive next month.
Noble boss Peter Boutwood told Autocar that the M600 is a car for “purists” with a minimal amount of driver aids.
However, we can reveal that the M600 will get a system similar to the Power button in a BMW M5, allowing the driver to switch between 450bhp, 550bhp and 650bhp, depending on road conditions. There will also be traction control, which can be switched off.
The British supercar will be quicker than its Italian rivals, the Ferrari F430 and Lamborghini Gallardo, with a top speed of over 200mph.
