NOBLE M400 2005
Back up for sale due to the previous buyer losing his job.
Reluctantly up for sale is my stunning and ultra rare Noble M400, finished in lovely gunmetal grey. (number plate not included)
Only 75 examples of this British supercar were made, with even fewer surviving to this day making this a true icon.
The Noble M12 is a bit of unsung hero, it was designed to take on the might of the Ferrari F40 as a pure drivers car, which it excels at in every area.
The M400 was the very last evolution in the Noble M12 range, it was developed to be a more track focused version than it’s predecessor the M12 3R and is quite a significant upgrade, a point proved when in 2005 AutoCar named it car of the year.
The M400 had many improvements over the 3R, a front anti roll bar, stronger and more powerfully engine with forged internals and bigger turbo’s, side air scoops, a engine oil cooler, upgraded suspension and springs, alcantara cabin with sparco seats, which are more centrally positioned, improved breaking system, improved gear change system the list goes on and on to really perfect the car.
My car is one of the last ones made in 2005, I acquired it from a friend in the Noble owners club who had owned it for 8 years and I have owned the car for over 4 years, I have a number of other cars but sadly not enough space to keep them all, hence the sale.
Despite it being track focused, the car is equally at home on the road, and it will happily potter around in a 30 and not over heat in traffic, it has remote central locking, power steering, CD/USB radio, Bluetooth hands free phone connection, and ice cold air conditioning, you don’t get that lot in a F40.
This car has gained its mileage cruising around the roads and car shows in the UK and on European touring trips to the south of France Italy and the lakes of Finland.
To the best of my knowledge it’s only ever done one track day in it’s life.
The car is kept in a dry heated garage and only gets taken out in the dry, as was the case by the previous owners, this is very obvious by the condition of the car and chassis.
The car has been kept as close to the original as possible but has had a few sensible modifications focused on improving reliability.
The power has been increased from the original 425bhp to 450bhp, but all the expensive bits have been done should you want more, it could quite easily be increased to 500bhp, but it’s really not need on the road.
The car has had no expense or time spared keeping it in tiptop condition and is regular cleaned and polished only using auto glym products.
It has an enormous and detailed service history totalling way in excess of £25,000.
