Sometimes I think that owning a 911 is a bit like being married to Angela Merkel. Reliable, dependable, effective. A bit overweight. A rather old design that has improved over the years. Really strong and stable (as opposed to ‘that’s-what-my-advisors-told-me-to say’ pretend strong and stable). I bet her husband (like a 911 owner) is just a little bit smug having convinced himself he’s made such a wise decision.
However, owning a Noble M12 GTO-3 is like going out with Kate Moss. British. Bonkers. Certainly not carrying any extra pounds. Some parts of her look like they come from Dagenham. If you look closely, you can see some signs of age. But on the whole she still looks absolutely fantastic. Other men will give you discreet nods of knowing approval. They know about these things. Others will want to take your photograph. On the whole, whenever you take her out, you can be guaranteed of the best time ever.
This Noble GTO-3 was first registered 1st March 2003. With three owners from new, it has spent most of its life in the owners’ garages, having completed only 24,900 miles. Dark metallic blue with blue Alcantara / black leather interior. Four-point race harness, as well as the inertia reel seat belts. It has the 3R-spec Duractec 3.0 V6 (with track-day sump), with the 6-speed Getrag gearbox and Quaife ATB LSD . It also has the 3R perspex covered headlights.
We have just carried out a check over and full service with all new fluids (including Mobil 1 engine and gearbox oil, uprated brake fluid, spark plugs, etc). The MOT history shows that it has had regular, low use throughout its life. It has passed the MOT for the last seven years with no advisories.
This is simply a superb classic British sports car. There are very few cars that are as usable, so brilliantly capable, and fun to drive. Good examples are getting rarer and this is a perfect opportunity to acquire a low-mileage M12 GTO-3.
Engine: V6, 2968cc twin-turbo
