I'm interested in purchasing a noble, I have been for years now but I'm closer than ever to actually buying one.

I'm interested to know how much difference there is between an original 2.5 car to 3.0?

Price difference seems to be about £8-£10k but hard to tell given how few are for sale.

I understand the 3.0 will obviously be quicker but the 2.5 will be more than fast enough for me so I'm mostly interested in other differences.

I don't plan on doing any track days.

Thoughts appreciated!

I've owned a 2.5, a 3R and a M400. To be honest the difference between a 2.5 and a 3.0 in performance in standard form is negligible on the road. You should really be looking at condition and sensible upgrades, some of which are quite important. The tunnel cooling modification being one of them, as the sheath around the throttle cable can melt and cause the cable to stick. If I were you, I'd speak to the guys on the Facebook page as everything you need to know will be there. But whichever model you settle for, you will find it like an addiction. I now drive a V10 R8 Spyder, which is a beautiful car, but I knew from day 1 it wasn't going to excite me like any of my Nobles, 2.5 included.
