The Noble M600 is a worthy competitor to the latest class of hypercars: the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari. With the latest M600 Speedster, Noble joins an elite set of vehicles that can top 200-mph with the top down. The Koenigsegg Agera and Porsche 918 Spyder are the only other members of the club so far, but Pagani is widely rumored to have a Huayra Spider in the works, as does Ferrari with their top model.
So what are the downsides of the M600 Speedster versus the standard car? Virtually nothing. With a carbon-fiber-intensive chassis that is already virtually unbendable, the M600 Speedster is all benefits. The most noteworthy? Huge turbo boost whoosh and blow-off valve bliss -- now piped unobstructed to both ears in full 640-horsepower glory.
The M600 Speedster's design lends itself very nicely to a topless model, and the Speedster is now available to order for an estimated $50,000 premium over the coupe. Dealerships in the UK, Taiwan and Shanghai are ready to facilitate orders in virtually any color you can dream up. The white showcar is hard to beat for current appeal in 2015 -- and the price of the M600 Speedster seems very affordable versus the McLaren and LaFerrari. We estimate the M600 Speedster to come in about $750,000 -- with pure V8 power unfettered by any hybrid nonsense.
