No­ble M12 GTO

Autocar - - USED CARS -

WITH THE EAR­LI­EST cars now start­ing at £35,000, the No­ble M12 GTO has sadly crept out of our £100-per-week bud­get since that orig­i­nal ar­ti­cle in 2005. As David Vi­vian noted, you re­ally had to be into the hand-built sports car sub­ject mat­ter to go off in search of an M12 GTO. This was not a car the typ­i­cal Porsche 911 driver would have traded into come the end of a fi­nance agree­ment, af­ter all. In terms of de­liv­er­ing raw driving thrills in a so­phis­ti­cated and well­judged man­ner, though, the No­ble was more akin to the bona fide su­per­cars of its day: as quick and as ex­cit­ing as a Fer­rari 360, but at a much more re­al­is­tic price.

The Le­ices­ter­shire com­pany is very dif­fer­ent th­ese days, though. It now sells the M600 su­per­car, a hand­ful of which are built each year, at £250,000 apiece.
