A radical new Noble is set to wow press and public when it’s unveiled this month. Named M15, the car will remain faithful to the company’s M14 concept as a user-friendly supercar, but will have an all-new chassis, drivetrain configuration, interior and body - as well as more power.

With a guide price of £75,000 the M15 represents a major departure from Noble’s current models. It will target buyers who are seeking a more exclusive and driver-focused alternative to mid-engined cars in the £110-130k price bracket, while also tempting those who are eyeing up the 2007 Lotus Esprit.

“The M15’s fresh styling and engineering emphasise our desire to present a genuinely all-new car to the market,” said Lee Noble, Noble’s MD and design chief. “While the Noble M12 series continues to win us accolades for its performance and dynamics, we’ve worked hard to ensure that the M15 is in a different league altogether. As before, this has been achieved without us having to resort to big, heavy engines or trick electronics. The M15 will be nothing less than a pure-bred driving machine.”

Among the M15’s highlights will be:

*

Dry-sumped engine with 455bhp/455lb ft of torque
*

In-line drivetrain using a new, bespoke gearbox
*

New, 57 per cent stiffer spaceframe chassis
*

Generous boot space, front and rear
*

New interior with high levels of standard equipment

The M15 will sit above Noble’s current models from launch, leaving the completed range as follows:

Noble M15: £75,000 (est)

Noble M400: £55,995

Noble M12 GTO-3R: £49,950

Full details and pictures of the first complete M15 coming soon.

Overhangs are a bit on the longish side for my taste and the scoops in front of the rear tires are too busy. And what's with four lug wheels, is this thing light as a Lotus or Miata?

Apparently the previous model was one hell of a fun track car, I'm sure this will be in a similar ballpark.

(BTW, why do people have to quote all those pictures for a few remarks, just redundant.)

The Noble M12 GTO was one of the finest sports cars ever built. Considering that it is a cottage industry car from england it was very impressive. I'm sure the new Noble will be just as fun to drive, but the GTO is a hard act to follow.
Here is a pic for referance:

So has anyone been able to find out what the powerplant is in this one? Are there choices? Another turbo'd ford V6? Please say no, this car deserves better.
