I wish them well, I have never driven a Noble, I can understand the appeal. Certainly better value than the Radford and could be just as rare.

That looks very nice. Could become a contender in that price range. I haven’t checked any details but Manual too! Hopefully it doesn’t kill too many customers with its lack of electronic aids. Proper old skool super car.
Not keen on the illegally spaced registration on the back and the missing one from the front though.

Just looking at the picture of those seats is making my back ache 😆

Trust me, those seats will be really comfortable.

Twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre Ford V6. 550bhp. No idea of the weight.

 Double-wishbone suspension at each corner with coilover springs and passive dampers.

GRP body.

Hydraulically assisted power steering

6-Speed Manual

Rings some bells.

Noble have not actually settled on a price but it is expected to be in the £150k range so it meets the R8, C8 and 911 Turbo (if you can get one) head on.

Funny how the launch colours on the Emira, Maserati and this are very similar!

Would you? Of course, the price uplift is befitting of the power offered.

Loving the Recaro Podium seats. Wow. 

Emira is a LOT prettier and I wouldn't say the Noble looks any more 'supercar' than the Emira.

I think it is a great effort from a British manufacturer that is even smaller than Lotus. We should celebrate the achievement.

Absolutely.  So good to see Lotus and Noble making forward movements.

I remember taking the original Noble out. Was some garage  near Chessington. Scared the life out of me. Ha. I was not brave enough to go for it at the time. I regret it now. 

Ironically, I bought an integrale Evo 2 and blew it up. :)
