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!

Noble hasn't issued an official statement about the M600 Speedster yet, but its prototype debuted at the Autosport Show this week with a flappy paddle gearbox behind the steering wheel and an additional launch button.

The gearbox is most likely to be the Graziano automated manual they have been developing for a while, but have no fear, the manual remains the standard gearbox for all M600s.

Other than that, the Speedster is pretty much the same as what you get with the M600 coupe: A carbon body, a knob that can turn your 450 hp rear-wheel drive supercar into a 650 hp one in a second and the least driver aids one can legally have in the year 2015. Without the roof, buyers will also hear more of this.

Rumor has it that the Speedster is entering production this summer priced somewhere around £250K. That's a bargain compared to an F40...
