Lot #949 - When Road & Track Magazine tested the Noble M400, they drew the conclusion that, "the Noble is one of the best sports cars in the world." With a 425hp turbocharged and intercooled engine and weighing in at a mere 2,320lbs, the Noble boasts a 400hp/ton power to weight ratio, just 40hp/ton shy of a Bugatti Veyron. It blasts from 0-60mph in just 3.2 sec and the standing quarter mile in 11.4 sec at 119mph. Edmunds' recorded 1.05g of lateral grip and the M400 dissects apexes with the surgical precision of a true racecar for the street. Amazingly it is also very well behaved on the road, the suspension tuned for bumpy British B roads and with excellent outward visibility. Automobile magazine raved that "the M400 is really brilliant: direct like a track car yet docile enough for the street." The cabin is superbly finished with Alcantara upholstery covering everything from the carbon fiber sport seats to the headlining, console and even the built-in roll bar and it features Willans racing harnesses, GPS/DVD ready Pioneer/Infinity audio system, plus generous leg, head and shoulder room. This Midnight Blue M400 is a pampered example.
