We are sure that many will question our decision to remove the top of our M600. We are known for our driver reward purist approach to automotive engineering, so how does a roadster, many of which sacrifice handling and performance, fit our ethos?
Due to our fixated approach to chassis design, taking the roof off has neither effected the handling nor indeed the weight of the M600. The carbon body on a M600 is not part of the integrity or the strength of the car, it is, rather like a Le Mans racing car, just clothing for the structure underneath. So the M600s incredible performance, apart from the aerodynamic effect when the roof is removed, is unaffected.
Another question which we feel needs to be answered is - Why when Noble espouses the analogue approach to driving, do we feel it necessary to introduce a paddle shift system?
Our personal preference is indeed a manual system, however we do understand that many supercar buyers prefer, for many reasons, a paddle shift system. However we did not think it apposite to totally abandon our driver reward visceral ethos. Therefore the paddle shift we employ is more similar in concept to a sequential system. An adaption of the Oerlikon Graziano gated manual six speed to an AMT clutch less hydraulically actuated gear change. Therefore it does not have the rather sedate automated twin clutch feel, but a more intense and dramatic sensation. One that we feel fits perfectly with our renowned driver focused ethos.
