Noble needs to make money. One way to do that is to make it easier to get outside of Europe, so the M600 could be getting a smaller engine, but only in the Asian markets to avoid higher taxes. Meantime, America is off the list of the small British carmaker’s priorities since it can’t afford to crash five M600s to get…
Great news for those of you who share my love for the last truly old school mid-engined supercar on the market, the British-made Noble M600. The 650 horsepower twin-turbo Yamaha V8 stays, but the roof is a goner!
The last time we heard from Polish supercar maker Arrinera, they may or may not have been a scam, but either way, a journalist was getting sued for calling them that. But I suppose that's all water under the bridge now, because Arrinera's car, the Arrinera Hussarya, finally has a timetable for production.
This picture of the Noble M600 is just awesome as it is, but there's more to the story as it's going to be available to people outside of Britain (just not in America).
I went to see Noble at Geneva as I was curious how things work at Leicester's best. They had a Carbon Sport and a "normal" M600 on display, and I just couldn't stop looking at that engine bay. The positioning of that twin-charged 650 HP Yamaha V8 is day one at supercar school.
Tucked away amongst the magazine publishers and insurance providers at the Paris Motor Show is a stand for Autoglym, a company that makes waxes and polishes for cars.
If you suddenly found yourself about $300,000 richer, what kind of car would you buy? A hopped-up Porsche? Some kind of Lamborghini? You could always go the predictable route and get a Ferrari.
Recently, an automotive journalist alleged the builder of the Polish Arrinera supercar appeared to passing off a Lamborghini replicar as its own product, possibly to work a stock-market angle for VENO S.A., an investor in the company. Today, Arrinera CEO Lukasz Tomkiewicz disputes the claim in an extensive statement.
We first mused about mused about the Polish-developed Arrinera vaporcar last year. Now, reports say the car's just a bad Lamborghini replica (wait, what?) — and perhaps the basis for a pump-and-dump scam. [UPDATE]
"Hey, did you hear about the Polish supercar?" sounds like the start of a joke that ends with the punchline "but they didn't have enough money to feed the goat." But this, apparently, is no joke. Although all we do have are a few renderings and a translation of the project Arrinera — the supercar from Poland.
In this country, the Wheego LiFe is an all-electric two-seater that's supposed to be cute despite a 100-mile range and a $33,000 price tag. In Germany, it's a rolling Chinese-built affront to Daimler's intellectual property. Who needs chopsticks when you have a forklift?
In social classes, nobility implies privilege, and those of noble lineage are considered the holders of power. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Noble M12 is powerful, and would likely be a privilege to drive, but is its price too bourgeois?
Name something with better power-to-weight than a Bugatti Veyron and has a Missile Switch? That's the 2,600-pound, 650-hp Noble M600 Carbon, a supercar that spits in the face of compromise and French-kisses with the Devil under Hell's bleachers.
If a Porsche is too plebeian for you, a Lotus too languid, if even a Modena is too mundane, then Nice Price or Crack Pipe has a Noble idea that's just for you. That exclusivity comes at a price, however.
With a Volvo-based 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, the Noble M600 produces an astonishing 650 HP and has a top speed of 225 MPH. Want one? The niche British carmaker'll sell you one for just £200,000 ($331,350). Gallery below.
Spottings of the Zubaz-inspired-camo-wearing Noble M600 continue, and Autocar.uk has managed to get a peek at the tail of the new low-volume supercar. The exterior enhancements at the aft end seem to match the ones at the front, and the design is maturing to match a more refined character from Noble. The exterior…
Would you love to have a Noble but can't wait for the M600 and don't have the scratch to buy a new M400? It's your lucky day because there's a gently crash 2007 Noble M400 just waiting for you in Indiana. On top of being a sweet shade of p**sy magnet yellow and having only 8706 miles, it only needs a radiator,…
