The latest British response to the supercar phenomenon is a very noble example of a motorcar –in fact, it’s the Noble M14 - and it has been unveiled in the UK.
Designer Lee Noble has created a car worthy of the supercar label in this 300 kW, 520 N.m monster which dispenses its power at 6 100 r/min and 4 750 r/min respectively. Using a modified twin-turbo version of the Ford 3,0-litre V6 engine, the M14 is claimed to cover the zero to 100 km/h sprint in just over four seconds.
According to , the M14’s body is made from vinylester GRP composite built over a steel spaceframe and reinforced with bonded and riveted alloy panels. A full roll over cage extends around the inside of the M14’s cabin. The body will be prepared in Port Elizabeth at the garages of Jimmy Price.
Suspension is by double wishbones all round, with coil springs and alloy uprights.
While the M14 displays an aggressive exterior with a particularly imposing rear end, the interior is trimmed in Italian leather. It goes on sale in Europe in October 2004.
