In time for Christmas, I have for sale my 2005 Noble M12 GTO-3R, NUS0073, in Monza Red. I am the original owner of this M12 GTO-3R. I purchased the chassis and components from 1G Racing in Hamilton, OH, in the summer of 2004 and completed the build in the winter of 2005. It will be difficult to see it go. Of all the cars I have owned and built, including a 1932 Ford Coupe, Saleen Mustang, AC Cobra kit car, and two Dodge Vipers, this one has been my favorite. But it has gotten harder and harder for me to get in and out of, so I don’t drive it enough.

This M12 GTO-3R has been driven approximately 8,150 miles and, other than a few small rock chips around the front splitter, is in mint to near mint condition. I would rate the overall condition of the car a 9 to 9.5 out of 10. It has never been tracked, wrecked, or damaged in any way. It has never been driven in the rain or snow and has always been stored in a climate controlled garage. The ECU has had the 400 bhp map since new. Other than the revised ECU map and a blow-off valve, the car is stock.

I am asking $58,500. If you have any questions or would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by e-mail at [email protected]. I can also be reached by phone at 901-502-3509. Thanks.

+TSRAGR, I have a lot of photos of the car, and some of which are recent. If you’d like, I can e-mail them to you.

I'd like one of these in my garage, but I have no extra room. Licensing one in California is also a pain. Very nice unmolested vehicle. GLWS.

Thanks, oldmansan. I hope to find a new home for this car in the not too distant future.

Fantastic looking car. I suspect as the weather gets warmer you may get more attention. A very sincere GLWS.

This car might be a good candidate for a BAT auction. A really nice looking car
I was thinking of putting mine out there for BaT in case they wanted it (though I may wait until Spring to see if someone here wants it first), but then got a call from Champion Motors International in NY (www.championmotorsinternational.com). Apparently they assess your vehicle, ship it to their location for a photo shoot and indoor storage, etc., then take care of selling it as consignment. They get their take from the buyer upon purchase and also has a financing arm that pays 60% of the agreed-upon value up front with a guarantee to pay 100% of it's value if it's not sold for the agreed price in 4 months. The site is pretty cool, and though I have no need for the advance, the consignment strategy seems sound as well. I'm wondering if anyone here has experience with Champion Motors and can vouch for them, or let everyone know to stay away...

If it's legit, it could be a nice alternative for those that are looking for an easy way to sell their car after being turned down by BaT.

By the way, I'm jealous of your car. I've listed my Elise just so I can use the cash to help pay off the mortgage and be 100% debt-free (with many mixed feelings about it). If something like this is out there after I've completed my mission, I may have to seriously consider going after it. GLWS!
