2006 red Noble M400 for sale, Los Angeles, CA

After 6 years of joyful and proud ownership, I decided to give up the car to a good owner who will have more time to enjoy the full potential of this marvel of engineering.

Car is located in Los Angeles, CA. It's SB100 registered (no easy process as evidenced by the thread dedicated to the topic) so it'll never have to be smogged. You can straight pipe it, quadruple turbo it, or do whatever within reason and not worry about the State coming down on you.

2006 Noble M400
Chassis #123
Monza red
Clear bra
Black alcantara interior
Sony stereo with USB input
Separate tweeters and 2 speakers per door
Custom woofer/subwoofer enclosures
Momo Trek II red/yellow steering wheel
Tinted headlight/tail light
HID 8k headlights
New tires less than 500 miles on them
All glass professionally tinted
2 sets of ignition keys, gas cap keys
New A/C heater valve just installed
A/C serviced and refilled a year ago
Build manual, CD, owners manual
Custom air horn to alert other drivers
Hand brake cables recalibrated
Always serviced on time, Royal Purple oil
Tags just renewed, good until 8/10/2019
Always garaged inside and covered

The car has 24,100 miles currently, I bought it with 18k miles in 2012, so you see how much I drove it, my loss. The car is in good overall cosmetic condition with some minor stone chips.

Car drives super strong with pulls guaranteed to put hair on your chest or scare the hair off your head, whatever you prefer. It's a beast that definitely demands respect and that's coming from a guy who used to race 1000cc open class super bikes on the race track (me).

At the local car shows, this car pulls more attention than cars costing 5-10x the price. You want to be super famous with no real talent other than showing up and your last name isn't Kardashian? Well, this is your ticket. Search instagram #noblem400 and you'll see it under the TOP tab all over the place. Can't miss the red Noble with blacked out headlights. Some pix are also on the Noble Registry.

Priced to sell at $51,000 and I will assist with shipping if you're not local or I'll deliver within the greater LA area, if you buy lunch, I might include surrounding counties.

I'll add more details as I remember them. I'll also attach pix because it won't let me do it from my phone. I'm typing this after working close to 40 hours in 3 days... gotta pay for the toys somehow, right?

Forgot to add, the car is the later design with anthracite wheels, black mirror posts, and black spoiler struts. Some M400s have the silver wheels and parts.

I also switched out the factory round orange side markers for smoked aston Martin triangular side markers. Makes the car look that much more modern.

The car had the wiring redone and grounds reinforced. I noticed it ran tighter with a stronger exhaust note afterwards. The electrician disabled the factory immobilizer which wasn't acting right but the remote door locks still work.

Finally, I would consider a trade for either a clean Birkin S3 or fake snake Cobra plus cash on your end, depending on the deal. In the mood for a little convertible, being in L.A.

If you have instagram, search #NobleM400 and it's the top result of many. Look for the red one with tinted headlights. There are also pix in the Noble Registry website under #123.

Without trying to anger the locals...

A Noble is a grown up Exige. It could have easily been badged as a Lotus, since it follows similar ethos.

For similar money, you could get a much slower Exige or Evora.

Lol. That was my thought process, sort of. I was going to supercharge my Elise, and add the clam kit and racing harness.

Then I realized it would be cheaper to buy the Noble, and have a car that has a clam setup, racing harness, and 2 turbos that gave me more power than any supercharger can on the 2ZZ. Plus it's exponentially more rare than any Lotus. So the decision at that point was easy. Sold the Elise and bought the Noble. (Not necessarily in that order)

The same! I started to build a 'monster' Elise and then just got the M400. Having both at the same time for 5 years, there was no need to mod the Lotus beyond what I did to make it more reliable and better handling for the track. I just sold the Noble and have had serious sellers remorse.

I don't think you can buy a more powerful, great handling, unique car for that money. The SB100 is a big advantage to a California buyer.

GLWS!

Probably was if it had tinted headlights and tail lights. I'm only 5 minutes from Alhambra.
