Noble M12

The NobleM12 is a two-door, two-seater sports car manufactured by Noble Automotive .

Description Edit

Like the Noble M10, the Noble M12 is a two-door, two-seater model, originally planned both as a coupe and as a convertible. All M12s have been powered by modified bi-turbocharged Ford Duratec V6 engines. The M12 has a full steel roll cage, steel frame, and G.R.P. (fiber glass) composite clam shell body parts.

These famed Ferrari killers are extremely lightweight and stiff. Although looking to be track derived, the M12 performs very well on both road and track, with surprisingly good ride quality, but a rigid feel. This is achieved by having no anti-roll bars on the car.

This allows the suspension to be stiff yet comfortable.

The coupe evolved through four versions of Noble cars, with the M400 as the ultimate version of the M12, and is followed by the M12 GTO-3R. Only 220 Noble GTO-3Rs and M400s were imported to the U.S. They are the only Nobles available to the American market.

The U.S. production rights to the M12s and M400s were sold in February 2007 to 1G Racing from Ohio. Due to high demand of these cars, 1G released its own copy, named Rossion Q1 Another company which is also producing a model developed from the M12 is Salica Cars 1 with their Salica GT and Salica GTR.

The only convertible variant (the M12 GTC) was shown at motor shows but production was cancelled, and it was never produced commercially by Noble. But despite this fact, Salica Cars 2 has giving a new hope in 2008, proposing its own convertible version: the Salica GTC, offered both as a conversion kit to transform an M12/400 coupe into a convertible, and as a complete car ex factory.
