Noble Automotive has released an image of a convertible M600, but has no plans to produce it at present.
The Noble M600 is an impressive supercar from one of the UK’s most interesting ‘Garden Shed’ supercar builders, even if it’s gestation period seems to have been ten times that of an elephant.
The M600 ‘arrived’ in 2009 ready to rock and roll, or so we thought, but then seemed to disappear again. Then at the start of 2011 it resurfaced, apparently with a few more tweaks to make it even more production ready.
The M600 even turned up on Top Gear in Italy earlier this year playing games alongside the Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren MP4-12C, but you’ll still be hard pushed to find one running round the roads.
But if you can find one you can’t fail to be impressed by its 4.0 litre turbocharged V8 with 650bhp and carbon fibre body giving it true supercar credentials with a 0-62mph under 3 seconds.
So having spent the last three years waiting for the M600 to actually make it on to the road, you can now look forward to another long wait for the Noble M600 Roadster, a single image of which has been released by Noble.
Noble say there are no plans to build the M600 Roadster, but this does look a bit like flying a kite to see what comes back. So if this bit of kite flying tempts you to put in an order for what could be one of the fastest convertibles on the planet, you ought to drop Peter Boutwood at Noble an email.
And at least you’ll have plenty of time top save up for what will inevitably be a Noble M600 Roadster costing the wrong side of £250k.
