Used Noble M12 Coupe (2003 - 2011) Review

The Noble is something of a legend in its own lifetime, providing supercar performance but at a fraction of the price of a Lamborghini or Aston Martin. Maker Lee Noble has a rare talent for setting up the chassis on his cars so not only is it quick but very useable.

Noble M12 Coupe (03-11)
Blistering performance, hugely involving to drive, smart cabin design, incredibly rare
Expensive to run, requires specialist maintenance, very few used examples around

New price range:

£48,325 - £58,850

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The Noble is something of a legend in its own lifetime, providing supercar performance but at a fraction of the price of a Lamborghini or Aston Martin. Maker Lee Noble has a rare talent for setting up the chassis on his cars so not only is it quick but very useable. This isn't a grand tourer since there's little in the way of luggage capacity as standard but for fast road driving or track days it delivers in a way that nothing can better.

Performance is as thunderous as you expect and driving a Noble is always an enjoyable experience.
