2006 Noble M15The Noble M15 is one of the most powerful and elegant of the Noble collection, which would explain why it costs £74,950. Not many sportcars can reach 60mph from a standstill in less than 3.5 seconds. The highest you can travel at is 185 mph. Who wouldn’t want to take it somewhere hidden and travel the fast speeds unhindered.

Noble is well known for its lightweight engineering and nothing proves that more than the M15. It is only 181 mm longer and 31mm wider than the M12 at 4270mm and 1905mm respectively, yet it only weighs a little more than 1200kg. Even though the dimensions make the vehicle seem small, it is surprisingly roomy. It has excellent crash protection and a chassis that is stiffer than any other Noble.

No matter what angle you are at, the vehicle looks spectacular and will hold onto your attention. The unique shape is the answer to why this supercar has the ability to fly at super fast speeds. The and the huge diffuser which has proven itself in battle on the company race car, help plant the rear to the ground at speed.

Now that we know that this Noble surpasses all of the previous ones that came before it we can brag about how the mid-mounted twin-turbocharged V6 in the most powerful engine that a Noble has ever used. It took 7 long, grueling years and over a million test miles to make it perfect. A sublime combination of low-end driveability and top end power, the latest version of Noble’s engine delivers 455lb ft of torque at 4850 rpm and 455bhp at 6800rpm. 96 per cent of this power is available from 5200rpm, making the M15 an effortlessly quick car.M15 Interior

The M15 is many firsts for Noble and another one to add to the list is versatility. Unlike any other Noble it is incredibly versatile and can take higher mileages before needing any maintenance.

Noble created a brand new tubular space frame chassisespecially for the M15. It was reinforced with bonded and riveted aluminium panels and was designed around the new in-line engine configuration and incorporates substantial  side-, front- and rear-impact protection.

An entirely new braking system, incorporating 330mm ventilated discs and four-pot callipers all round, has been developed specifically for the M15. As well as improving overall efficiency, special attention has been paid to the levels of feel passed on to the driver. Noble is currently researching suitable ABS systems to be fitted to the first production cars too.
