The British sports car company Noble has finally unveiled the production version of its M600 Speedster. This open-top supercar was first introduced four years ago as a computer-generated rendering, and was finally shown at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The M600 Speedster has to pass its crash testing before going on sale, but Noble is confident it will be available by the end of the year, although only a European launch has been mentioned at this point.
The M600 Speedster has a removable targa-style roof, but with nowhere to store the roof on the car, a canvas lining is all that will cover the cabin if the weather turns sour. Like the M600 coupe, the Speedster will be powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the 4.4-liter V8 built by Yamaha that was previously seen in Volvo’s first-gen XC90. It’s powerful enough to generate 650 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque and boasts a 0-60mph of 3.0 seconds. Its top speed is slightly above 200mph. The expected starting price for the M600 Speedster is £220,000 (or approximately $305,300).
