Noble is one of Britain’s unsung automotive heroes, reserved for those in the IYKYK crowd who favor raw performance and authentic driving over computer-enhanced trickery from the brand’s German counterparts, or wild amounts of flair from the Italians. Now, Noble provides not just a closer look, but plenty more information about its upcoming “baby” supercar, the M500.
Taking one step down from the formidable M600 supercar that was debuted in 2010, the M500 is said to be a less extreme version of its big brother, but this will by no means make for a car that should be overlooked. Instead, the M500 will come with the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 from Ford which powers the GT, offering around 550 BHP to rival upcoming supercars such as the Maserati MC20, or the future mid-to-top range offerings from Porsche.
Unlike the M600, the M500 will not be made from carbon fiber, instead opting for a glassfiber composite structure that’s almost as light. However, all the power will be sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed gated manual gearbox — a true driver’s car, then.
No word has been said on how much it’ll cost, but rumors point to around £150,000 GBP (or around $200,000 USD). Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST and HYPEBEAST Car Club for more information, and expect the M500 to launch in mid-late 2021.
