(From Noble Press Release) Welcome to a new dawn for Noble Automotive, the launch of the all new M15.

This machine represents a whole new philosophy and takes the core values of dynamic excellence, lightweight engineering, value-for-money and blistering performance to a whole new level of comfort, refinement and everyday usability. There's even room for luggage!

At a cost of 74,950 the M15 sits well above the other cars in the Noble range. With 455 bhp and 455lb ft of torque, it's also the most powerful production car to leave the Leicestershire factory, capable of hitting 60 mph from standstill in less than 3.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 185 mph. It is, therefore, a credible and more exclusive alternative to other supercars costing well in excess of 100,000.

Despite its destructive power, the M15 remains one of the least intimidating supercars on the markets thanks to prodigious levels of grip and a forgiving chassis. After all, it's still a Noble, but it's the most spectacular machine to emerge from Barwell and may prove the definitive British supercar.

Welcome to M15, the ultimate expression of British intelligence.

I like the M14 better, this M15 is too Saleen S7esque.

I agree; the steering wheel & shifter needs to be reworked as well.

It seems really boxy, esp. the interior.
