Description

A UK-supplied, right-hand drive example of the remarkable M600 Carbon SportYamaha-sourced, 4.4-litre, twin-turbo V8 feeding 650bhp/604lb.ft through a 6-speed manual boxFinished in polished Carbon with a Charcoal Grey interior and Carbon Sportdetails in redOnly 11,500 miles with two owners and a full Noble Works service history from newThis fabulous hand-built British sportscar is on offer from a private vendorCherished registration number M60 OCSwill remain with the carGreat ride quality, superb drivability, 225mph potential and very competitively guidedNoble Automotive, based in Leicestershire, have been hand-building remarkable sports cars for many years with the emphasis on driver satisfaction. The company ethos hasnt changed from the start as we can see from this extract from their latest brochure; We believe that many supercar manufacturers place too much emphasis on driver assistance, which, in our view, negates driver reward. Rather than rely on electronic assistance our back to basics approach concentrates on the more analogue qualities of design. By utilising a principle of pure engineering integrity from the chassis up we ensure that the driving experience is an honest reflection of the driver's skill, putting you, the driver, back in control.Introduced in early 2011 and still available today the, essentially bespoke, M600 was offered in three forms, the standard Coupe, the open-top Speedster andas we have here, the M600 Carbon Sport.As with all previous Nobles, the M600 uses a mid-engined spaceframe chassis with double wishbones at each corner and coil-over dampers for its primary suspension. The spaceframe chassis is made from a combination of steel and aluminium and is, apparently, as strong and rigid as that of any rival. Using carbon fibre for all the key body parts, the production car weighs just 1250kg.The Carbon Sport is the only M600 model to be clothed with carbon fibre external panels and the effect is undoubtedly stunningAt the heart of the M600 is a twin-turbo 4.4-litre originally designed by Yamaha for use in Fords now-defunct Premier Automotive Group. Its a traditional 32-valve, V8 set in a regular V design not a flat-plane, 180-degree crank like those used in Ferraris V8 mid-engined models. In this instance, it has been comprehensively reworked by US engine specialist Motorkraft, who have added two Garrett turbos and a new Motec ECU to boost power to 662bhp at 6500rpm at1.0bar of pressure, and 604lb/ft of torque at 6800rpm. The jaw-dropping numbers are 0-60 in 3 seconds, 0-120 in 8.9 seconds, and 0-200mph in 29.8seconds.Dating from 2013, this M600CS is on offer from a private vendor and has covered just 11,500 miles. It looks simply amazing in polished Carbon with a Charcoal Grey interior and 'Carbon Sport' details in red in the cabin. The wheel rims, brake calipers, engine air intakes and cam covers are also finished in red adding to the visual drama. It has a full Noble service history as follows; 19/06/13 at 74 miles, 04/10/13 at901 miles, 19/11/14 at7,306 miles, and 28/06/16 at10,108 miles. The appropriate registration number, M60 OCS, will remain with the car.We have left the last word to Autocar magazine;Because in the end, it is its raw, brain-mangling performance that defines theM600. Not just in a straight line but also around corners, under brakes, during acceleration, everywhere and anywhere. What we are talking about is one of the fastest cars that has ever been built for use on the public road, in light of which 206,000no longer seems quite so crazy.
