The newest Noble M500 typical sports car would be revealed soon

~Savage Noble~ As a typical British car marque, perhaps Noble is a brand that not many people know. Understandably the British car maker has never again sold its car products since the launch of its last model, the Noble M600 in 2011.

For those who are familiar with the Noble brand, they must have imagined the deep acceleration, masculine, and extreme touch. As always, the Noble supercar uses a manual gearbox and doesn't like the unnecessary weight through safety features, so the car has something to impress while to drive.

This is unlikely to change, when the manufacturer intends to launch a new model called the Nobel M500 while sticking to the tradition of allowing only experienced drivers behind the wheel to get the most out of it.
Noble clarified that the M500 is still a prototype, but will retain most of the exterior and interior elements. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
Although allegedly less extreme, the new sports car is targeted to replace the M600, the only car made by the company at this time. The Nobel M500 was first revealed at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the latest news being that the British brand was producing it with a target of the delivery to customers starting later of this year.

As is the case with its predecessors, such the very rare M600 and M400, the Noble M500 is a mid-engined two-seats sports coupe, which has also a powerful rear axle. But as its drivetrain instead of a V8, the M500 uses a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine which can also be found under the rear deck of the Ford GT and the mentioned engine is claimed capable to produce power around 550 horsepower, which makes it a good competitor to the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Speaking to the media, Peter Boutwood, Managing Director of Noble Automotive is mentioned that the offering for this less extreme and 'very much like the M600' model will continue to run. Beside it's equipped with a double-wishbone suspension with coilovers and passive dampers, the Noble M500 also offered exclusively with a six-speed Graziano manual transmission.

While the steering wheel performance will be hydraulically assisted, it is intended to guarantee enricher feedbacks with thrilled driving experience. Although to this day, there are no images related to the M500 interior, as reported by Autocar that the car cabin has digital instrument panel and central infotainment screen assist the driver during intense driving, also a pair of Recaro Podium racing seats, although seats that are not too extreme will also reportedly be offered.

Furthermore, when compared to the Noble M600, access to and from the M500's cabin is much easier thanks to the smaller door frame. As before, anti-lock brakes and airbags were avoided, meaning there's no single one M500 could be legally run in the US roads due to absence of such those safety features mentioned above.

Currently, the high-speed testing isn't over yet and there may still be some minor changes, the bodywork uses composite panels reinforced with glass built over steel tubes chassis, with the engine mounted in the middle. However, Noble also intends to offer carbon fiber components as an option to reduce weight. Even without this, the company targets a production weight of around 2,750 lbs.
When the production phase finally gets underway, the automaker hopes could be produced the M500 as much 50 units per year. Regarding the price, although until now the British auto company hasn't revealed yet but reportedly has a price around £ 150,000 or equivalent to Rp. 2.94 billion. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR | TRACEDNEWS ]
