BEST BRAND YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF

- Cars · Audi · Pagani · Fiat Multipla · Donkervoort

Dean De EV EVANS

Like a Bri­tish ver­sion of Pagani, No­ble builds be­spoke su­per­cars to or­der: the M600, Car­bon Sport and Speed­ster. All three mod­els share a 4.4 twin- turbo Judd V8 in a 1200kg pack­age good for just un­der 500kW and a top speed of 362km/ h.

As res­i­dent for­mer Mul­ti­pla owner/ apol­o­gist around here, I love re­lat­ing that the re­born 1998 model was not in­tended to be a “Fiat Mul­ti­pla” — it was a “Mul­ti­pla Fiat”, mean­ing Mul­ti­pla was the brand. It doesn’t seem to mat­ter so much now.

I’ve cho­sen Donker­voort be­cause, like me, it’s got a dif­fi­cult Dutch name to pro­nounce. Names aside, they make some ridicu­lously cool light­weight, Audi- pow­ered road­sters that would give most mod­ern su­per­cars a run for their money on both the drag strip and the race­track.
