2004 Noble M400 - 24,000 Miles Superb Condition SOLD

Lee Noble was all that was great about small-scale British sports car manufacturing. An engineering genius of the ‘old-school’. From a small office with a desk and a drawing board in an unassuming industrial unit in Leicestershire, he designed and built some exceptional cars. The M400 was the last of the Lee Noble cars.

The M400 was improved over the previous M12 models with high-lift camshafts, forged pistons, larger turbochargers and revised fuel injection, revised engine mapping, a larger oil cooler, a larger baffled oil sump, and a re-designed and much improved revised gear shift. Chassis improvements included Dynamics race dampers and uprated springs, and the addition of a front anti-roll bar.

This particular car was first registered 8th December 2004. Three owners from new. Only 24,000 miles. Monza red. “M400” Alcantara interior with Sparco race seats and a four-point race harness, as well as the inertia reel seat belts. Recent MOT with no advisories

It has been professionally maintained by Plans Performance regardless of cost and has had £1000’s spent on sensible, discrete upgrades to improve performance and reliability. The car comes complete with a full documented service history and all receipts for the work done.

Thanks to new Garrett GT2860 turbochargers; Piper re-packable stainless steel exhaust system; Pro-Alloy uprated intercooler; and revised fuel pumps and fuel injection, power has been increased by 33 percent over the standard M400.

The car has an aircraft-style quick-release engine loom by TE Systems. Engine management has been improved using a Motec ECU – mapped by MacKellar Racing on Advanced Motorsport and Engineering’s chassis dyno.

This map makes full use of the mid-to-top-end torque in the rev-range, ensuring that the car is easy to drive on the road as well as providing fantastic, usable power on the track – unlike many turbocharged cars.

Much effort has been focused on making the car reliable: by moving all the critical electrical systems into the passenger compartment (Dry-cell battery, engine management systems and critical relays); upgrading the clutch and gearbox (steel bearings, shot-peened and super finished gears, and a thermostatically controlled gearbox oil cooler), and managing heat by upgrading the engine oil coolers and ducting, etc etc.

Cosmetic enhancements include a flat base alcantara steering wheel, carbon fibre mirrors and door handles and a motorsport rear diffuser.

Noble only made 75 of these cars. Weighing 1000kgs, with the upgrades this car has a better power to weight ratio than the original Bugatti Veyron.

The result is simply a superb multi-purpose road and track car. There are very few cars that are as usable on the road and so brilliantly capable on the occasional track day. Possibly the best M400 to come to the market from some time.
