Noble M10 - car review

Photo Noble M10

The founder of Noble Moy Automotive was Lee Noble, who had nearly twenty years of experience in designing sports cars. On his account, such models as Ultima, Ascari and Prosport 3000, as well as the development of the chassis for the legendary supercar McLaren F1. The first, test car of the company was the Noble M10. Its production began in 1999 at Barwell (Leicestershire, United Kingdom) and lasted for a year until a successor appeared - the Noble M12. Prior to the noble debut of Noble in the market of professional sports cars, the hallmarks of such cars, produced in small batches, in those years were fiberglass bodies and low quality performance.

The model was conceived as a competitor to such sports cars as the Lotus Elise S2, Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, Honda S2000, Honda Civic Type-R (EP3), Renault Clio 182, Toyota MR2 Spider and generally met expectations, leaving behind many serious rivals. This roadster had the same chassis design as Nobleโ€™s previous models. Externally, the Noble M10 looked like a walking convertible, but in this British sports car its designer kept the sport car's average engine layout. It is worth noting that the modern Porsche Boxster with a 228 hp engine.

I could not get ahead of the Noble M10 of those times, which accelerated from the spot to the first hundred in 6.1 seconds and up to 160 km / h in 16.8 seconds. The fact is that when building the car, the principle that characterizes all British sports cars was applied: a superb power to weight ratio, which was 0.1771 hp / kg. The Noble M10 had a 2-door 2-seater bodywork, the stylish interior of which was impressively aggressive. The dimensions of the car were 3870 mm in length and 1760 mm in width, the height of the body - 1170 mm.

The curb weight of the machine is only 959.8 kg. As a power unit used Ford gasoline injection engine V6 of 2.5 liters with four valves per cylinder. The power developed by this naturally aspirated engine was relatively low - 168 hp, but the maximum speed, due to the small mass of the machine itself, reached 220 km / h. Torque transmitted to the driving rear wheels was 219.7 Nm. The engine is aggregated with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The car had an excellent chassis, then passed on to the successor - M12. The M10 and subsequent Noble models raised the bar for quality and design so high that the press and customers were puzzled as it could be done at relatively low costs. Noble M10 was released in a small series, in the amount of only eleven copies, which is especially valuable for collectors who invest money in prestigious sports cars.
