Among supercar fans, the name Noble is one of those that's whispered by those in the know and Googled by those who aren't. Now the exclusive automaker has unveiled a new M600 at the London Motor Show courtesy of its distributor, Super Veloce Racing. It goes 0-62 in 3.5, 120 in 8.9, and 225 at the end.

The Noble M600 was a collaboration between SVR and Noble, with specifications being hammered out by both. Noble recently relaunched itself and with a new manufacturing facility in Leicester, England. The M600 took five years to develop and has two editions: the "standard" edition M600 and the M600 CarbonSport, both hand-crafted and built to order.

Buying a Noble is not just a matter of walking into a showroom, drinking a latte, and flipping through a catalog of options. Instead, the customer is taken to a demonstrator vehicle on a race track, to drive and be driven in the car with a professional racing driver. Details are then tailored to the customer, using that expensive word "bespoke."

The underlying car, though, is always the same. The Noble M600 is powered by a 4.4-liter Yamaha V8 engine with twin turbos and a six-speed manual gearbox. This engine outputs 662 bhp (671 hp, 492 kW) at 6,500 rpm and 604 pound-feet (819 Nm) of torque at 6,800 rpm. With a dry weight of just 1,198 kg (2,641 lb), the M600 has a power to weight ratio of 558 bhp per tonne.

That means a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 3.5 seconds, a 0-124 mph(199 km/h) time of 8.9 seconds, and a top speed of 225 miles per hour (362 km/h).

The Noble M600's chassis and suspension is made up of a tubular space frame and stainless steel tub upon which a carbon fiber composite body is set. Double wishbones and coil-over shock absorbers finish the underpinnings, and roll bars are mounted front and rear for safety. The wheels are 9Jx19 forged aluminum at the front and 12Jx20 forged aluminum at the rear. Braking is through 380-mm discs and six-piston calipers at the front and 350-mm discs with four-piston calipers at the rear.

I drove an M300 and it was a raw blast of fun. Yes, definitely on a need-to-know basis, this is one quite community that knows how to have fun. The car was much more bare than the M600. It had a Ford V6 with twin turbos that delighted you with plenty of wastegate noises. I'm glad I finally saw a police car on the road, because the M300 serenaded me so much I was losing track of reality :)
