Full Test: 2007 Noble M400

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=120703
What Works:
Mind-bending acceleration, Velcro-like grip, confident balance, best ride/handling compromise of any supercar we've tested.

What Needs Work:
Hard-to-be-smooth shifter, no redline on tachometer, leaf-blower-in-a-shed cockpit racket.

Bottom Line:
The M400 combines blinding speed with superb handling at a level usually reserved for cars costing twice as much.

* 425-hp turbocharged V6
* 2,484-pound curb weight
* Six-speed trans-axle with limited-slip differential

One of the guys that we Auto-X with has a Noble m400. I got to sit in it and instruct him. It was nice.

Is it just me or does this M15 look a bit too much like a kit car?

Well, in the US they are all considered kit cars. You buy the chassis from the company but you have to supply the motor.

The M400 at least has impeccable fit and finish. I honestly expected that it would look terrible on the inside or at least have that lotus elise "OMG underneath it's made out of tape, plastic and foil" thing going on but it's all really top quality. It was a huge surprise.
