British supercar maker Noble has released a rendering of what the M600 Roadster could look like, even though managing director Peter Boutwood told Autocar there are no plans for any such vehicle. Of course releasing a rendering like the one we see here only fuels speculation, however, Boutwood hinted it’s “not completely out of the question”.
A styling exercise to gauge customer interest, the M600 Roadster could prove an important addition to Noble’s limited lineup as it would appeal to buyers looking not just for performance. Currently the M600 coupe is designed and engineered as an uncompromised and true drivers car, without electronic gizmo’s such as ABS or ESP and the traction control only has two settings – on or off. Noble is also keen to draw attention to its M600 in the Chinese market and a stylish convertible supercar can only help in this regard.
The M600 features a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine that produces 485 kW and 818 Nm of torque. It is connected to a 6-speed manual transmission, which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0 – 60 km/h in 3.0 seconds and hit an estimated top speed of 362 km/h.
If the M600 Roadster ever leaves the factory, pricing is likely to start higher than the M600′s base price of £200 000.
