Congratulations! It's an awesome car. I, and I'm sure, a few others here would like to hear about your experiences with it. Stay in touch.dodgy_01 said:I declined to take delivery of my Magnetic Blue after I could find no buyers - I just purchased a Noble.
It should arrive just before Thanksgiving - give them a call if you are interested.
They gave me my deposit back!
As I understand it they are a highly modded Ford Duratec V6. I don't think you're average Ford dealer will be able to work on it or it's twin turbos...dodgy_01 said:Its just a Ford Duratec V6 engine which alot of people should be able to work on - parts are a lot cheaper than for a Porsche!
Noble is quicker than the Viper and at around 2200 lbs with fantastic handling, it will hand the Viper it's a$$ on the track. Still the Viper will no doubt be more reliable. Noble is an even smaller company than Lotus so expect even more niggles and wait times due to part replacement to be much longer than you would have to wait for similar repairs on a Liz. Plus without a trunk the Noble is even less practical than the Liz. Still it is an awesome car and very close to the Liz in weight.rucnok said:the website says about $80K for the noble and i'd rather get a viper with a warranty for that money.
dodgy_01, wait, you mean you got the Noble for around $50k? Or do you mean the Elise was approaching $50k?dodgy_01 said:Its pretty expensive - having to sell other cars - but the Elise was catching up pretty fast. After Tax with the options I chose - there was little change from $50K.
There is very little comparison in the the car drives to the Elise - dont get me wrong - I love the Elise - but the acceleration on this thing tears your eyelids off
