For Sale – 2004 Noble M12GTO 3R

Asking $52,500 OBO (Make me an offer!)

As much as it pains me to see it go, I am now offering my Noble for sale in order to clear up funds for an upcoming real estate investment.

The car was purchased out of TX in November of 2010 with 10,800 miles on the odometer. It was immediately shipped to TurboHoses (remember this one, Hoover?!. It underwent a complete overhaul and inspection over the course of months before being shipped home to Florida.

A host of other upgrades were undertaken in preparation for getting the vehicle to the perfect blend of street and track performance. These upgrades include (but may not be limited to) the following:


Brand new engine block
Front mounted oil cooler
Upgraded steel oil pan
Full rework of the p/s hoses and seals
ECU reflash / tune
Windage tray
Oil pump pressure
Update fuses
Remove driver's side vent shroud
New fuel lines / filter
Oil restrictors
Fuel pump conversion
New PCV /breather tank with check valve
Full cat-back exhaust (Turbohoses)
Blow off valve
New ball joints
Headlight vent install mod
M400 shifter
Trickle charger install
Upgraded shift forks
LED front turn signals
Clear side markers
Enlarged side air intakes
Audi dash vents
MOMO steering wheel
Pioneer Navi head unit – center mounted
Carbon fiber drip tray and front splitter
Rear mount carbon fiber spoiler
“Big Man” driver’s seat (installed)
New rear tires (last summer)

The car will come with two sets of keys, a battery tender/trickle charger, the original installation manual and the stock driver’s seat should you ever wish to swap it back for a smaller driver.

Despite its size, the Noble easily accommodates larger drivers and is extremely easy to drive. The interior of this car, in particular, is unique on a Noble and offers a far more refined feel than the stock Noble through the addition of the vents, shifter boot, steering wheel and of course the center-mounted Pioneer in-dash DVD/Navi system.

Known Issues:

The bodywork is in exceptional condition, especially for a car that is now ten years in age. There are a few very small nicks in the paint and there is some crazing of the clearcoat in places on the wheels, but it is not very noticeable. The clearcoat on the rear spoiler has the common “milking” that all of these cars exhibit. The front spoiler is brand new, but was damaged in shipping and has a small crack in the front left lip. There is a small tear in the spare driver’s seat, but the one currently installed was brand new in 2011 and is in perfect condition. The driver’s seat does bind and is difficult to re-adjust. I never got around to fixing it, as no one drives the car except me. Lastly, the oil temperature lead was damaged by the stereo installer and is not currently functioning, however it is redundant as the water temperature gauge is operational.


All standard maintenance has been carried out by Jaguar of Naples, FL, which handles not only Jaguar, but Maserati, Aston Martin and Land Rover.
I’ve tried to be as honest as I can in the description of this car. Inspection is welcome. I will be selling the car fully serviced and ready to go to the new owner.
I will be happy to help with shipping if local pickup is not an option.
Clear Florida title is in hand.

Thanks for looking!
