2006 Noble M400

Hey, not enough time for details right now. But my car is for sale. $58,000.

I love this car. I am only selling because I am buying a new one, a Rossion Q1. Which I have been planning on doing for some time. For those that don't know the Noble, it is truly one of the ultimate supercars. Designed by Lee Noble to be a race car for the street. And really a race car with full integrated roll cage inside and suspension for racing. Not many cars are even close to this car, and for the price, it is truly an amazing value. Park next to Lambos and nobody looks at the Lambo. I know.

Quick specs are:
~525hp ~480 foot pounds.
2300 pounds weight.
estimated 0-60 2.9 seconds. estimated top speed 195mph.

dual turbo Ford Duratec 3l V6, forged internals for more power.
Great air conditioning, blows ice cold
Integrated alarm and immobilizer
Hinged front and rear clams that are easily removed. One of the most awesome things about this car! All GRP composite body work
Metallic silver paint and 3m film protection
Full leather and alcantara interior *(black and gray dual color)
Great tires
MANY modifications, I have spent almost $20k on this car in the last 8 months.
Custom dual exhaust. New dual Borla system with full 3" stainless tubing with matched lengths from turbos
Relocated electronics for better access and cooler.
Custom battery hold down and new upgraded lighter battery.
Added battery jumper access connector
Added Tial BOV. Makes nice woosh....phisssshhh noise
Custom intercooler. Larger capacity cooling.
Heat shield wrapping around IC box. Gold foil.
Upgraded fuel pump, wiring and relay for better reliability. Fuel pressure gauge.
New tune on ECU. Power upgraded to 525hp, 480ft-pds torque
Dual map settings for low and high boost (can be used for valet mode) wired to dash switch
Upgraded to Porsche axles for better reliability for racing.
Custom axle nuts
Modified uprights for racing
Modifed upper rear suspension arms for racing
Momo steering wheel with 1.5" extension for more leg clearance
Sparco carbon fiber racing seats with full 6 point racing harnesses
MP3 Sony stereo system with remote
Full integrated rollcage wrapped in black Alcantara
Upgraded primary wiring and heat shielding
6 speed Getrag tranny with Quaife torque sensing limited slip


I think it has 19,000 miles on the odometer.






There are some very shady characters in the Lotus retail and aftermarket business.

WOW..really Randy? I lust after the noble.

I wish I could swing that one past the wife without her noticing but in our 1 car garage, I'm pretty sure she'd catch it.

Best of luck with the sale...and the new Q1

OMG! Randy, You're killing me. 9 months ago when I bought my Elise SC this would have been an Automatic purchase for me. I'm just not sure how I can swing it now. ARG!!

I still want pics. Amazing car. Seriously, I'm in pain.

Well, I have a legacy right?

The plan is....fly to Florida, get the car and drive to LOG, then Tail of the Dragon, then Chicago...and route 66 home to California

They offer a factory warranty now...is that 3 year / 36k miles? If so...I may seriously be contemplating selling the Exige and getting one of these.

OMG - that is stunning beyond words. Totally badass looking. I like the new look a lot better, not that the old style was bad. Aedo - follow the link, it talks about the powerplant. Close to the same, but much more refined out of the box for sure.

Here's a link explaining the relationship. Basically, 1G racing were Noble importers, then bought the rights to them.
