Noble M12 GTO 3R

3 litre Ford Duratec V6
Length/width/height 161.0/74.2/45.0 in
Curb weight 2457 lb

Maximum Speed 173 mph
1/4-mile 11.8 sec @ 118 mph

The Noble is named for designer and chief engineer, Lee Noble. It has a tubular steel chassis and a fiberglass body. The styling is a reserved combination of Lotus Esprit and Elise. The car is actually quite plain, and from a distance it blends in with other traffic. It seems to be a practical supercar: There's plenty of ground clearance, and the twin turbo V6 is very quiet.
