Default Noble M500

Noble Reveals New Road-Friendly M500 Supercar At Goodwood





After eight years, Noble is back with a new supercar.
Even though it was never sold in the US, the Noble M600 gained notoriety through various appearances on global shows like Top Gear. It has been eight years since the M600 came along to challenge the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini with its 650-horsepower Yamaha-built V8. Noble is back at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 with a new supercar called the M500. As the name suggests, the M500 will be less extreme than the M600, and focus on being a more road-friendly supercar.

Unlike the M600, the M500 won't use a V8 engine. In a sign of the times, the M500 will be powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 from Ford, similar to what is used in the F-150 and GT. The car will produce around 550 hp, sent out to rear-wheel drive through a dual-clutch automatic. This will be a far cry from the M600, which was a fire-breathing manual supercar that was often compared to a modern day Ferrari F40. The M500 being shown at Goodwood is not a working prototype, but rather a full-scale model without an interior. The design was penned by Noble's company director, Peter Boutwood.





Boutwood has clearly taken some inspiration from modern supercars, as the M500 features flying buttresses like the Ford GT. Noble says the car is still in development, and won't reach production until at least 2019. Since the M500 isn't as powerful as the M600, it should undercut the old car's nearly $400,000 price tag by a considerable margin. Noble is dedicated to keeping the M500 close to the M600's 2,755-lb curb weight, though the more comfortable ethos could bring weight up. We're interested to see if Noble will bring this supercar Stateside, since we never got the M600.

The Noble M500 Concept Is A Fiberglass Supercar With A 550 HP Twin-Turbo EcoBoost V6



British sports car manufacturer Noble has been making one car, the M600, since 2010. But today, they just showed up to the Goodwood Festival of Speed with an all-new entry level concept, the Noble M500, which will reportedly come with a 550 horsepower twin-turbo EcoBoost V6.

The car that showed up to Goodwood earlier today is only a concept body, as the car is still early in development. But Autocar reports that the M500 is expected to be rear-wheel drive with a fiberglass body and a direct-shift dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Power has been pegged to be around 550 HP coming from a twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 from the family of engines found in the Radical RXC Turbo, Ford F-150 and Ford GT, though the expected power output suggests thereís a few differences between the engine Noble is using and the GTís 647 horsepower figure. Itís expected to be around the M600's 2,756 lb weight.

Noble is angling for the M500 to be more of a comfortable daily driver in contrast with its current M600 model, and will be priced and positioned to bring in more volume. The styling is a big jump over the current M600's look and, frankly, itís pretty gorgeous, possibly even overshadowing itís older stablemate.

The car isnít expected to go into production until late next year, and pricing isnít set yet, though itís anticipated to come in attractively more ďaffordableĒ compared to the M600's near-$272,000 price.
