This Noble M400 was first registered 6th Jan 2005. Two Owners (last owner for 12 years). 48,500 miles. Full history with Noble / Plans Performance. We have just completed a full service, cosmetic refresh and new MOT with no advisories. Hence in exceptional condition.
Lee Noble has always had a reputation as a designer and manufacturer of astonishingly good performance cars. Ultima, Ascari, and, of course, the eponymous Noble. Plaudits have been poured on the M12 model especially, and the M400 - the seriously quick variant of the M12 line - scooped Autocar's prestigious Best Driver's Car award.
If you are reading this you will probably know why one should buy an M400 over an ‘ordinary’ Noble:
• Much rarer – only 80 built
• Much improved gear change
• Better driving position
• Better steering with a revised rack with more turns lock-to-lock – Lee Noble said that the older rack too quick for the car, inducing understeer
• Less body roll thanks to anti-roll bars (Lee always said the car didn’t need them, but the market thought otherwise…)
• 401bhp per tonne. A 911 GT3 RS has 282bhp per tonne.
It's hard to think of a sports car at any price that can match the performance and handling of the Noble M400. There are no doubts whatsoever about this car's astonishing capabilities. The M400 combines deftness and poise with terrific power and searing speed. It is a tribute to Lee Noble's exceptional engineering skills.
This particular car is a 2005 Noble M400, supplied new in January 2005.
Gunmetal grey with grey Alcantra. The first owner had it for just a year, and the second owner since then. It has been maintained by us since 2011. It has covered 48,468 miles.
It has the benefit of Nitron suspension, transmission tunnel cooling, Pro-alloy intercooler with ATL gold heat reflective foil covering, battery isolator, Zircotec downpipes and cats, and a new stainless rear silencer.
We have recently carried out a £10,000 refresh and re-paint and it is now presented in exceptional condition. As far as we know, it’s currently the only M400 on the market – so a great opportunity to acquire the best value for money multi-purpose track and road performance car on the planet.
