The team at Hilton & Moss are excited to bring this stunning example of a now rare, hand-built British sportscar to the market.
First released at the turn of the millennium, the Noble M12 GTO was the first true sportscars to be launched by Noble Automotive after the short-lived M10. With production taking place between 2000 and 2008, the M12 was available in a number of variants over the years, all utilising the twin-turbo Ford Duratec V6 powerplant in either 2.5, 3.0 or 3.5 litre form.
This particular version is the M12 GTO-3 which sees 352bhp from the 3.0 litre V6. A pair of Garrett T25 turbos and a curb weight of 1,050kg allow the Noble to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 3.7 seconds.
Having had 4 previous keepers in its 19-year life and covering 26,900 miles, the most recent owner exhibited a no-expense-spared attitude, with an ultimate focus on reliability and usability. A number of key modifications have been made to vastly improve the car alongside a major mechanical recommission by Hilton & Moss in 2018. Just some of these are listed below:
- Pro Alloy Water Radiator
- Larger power steering cooler
- Engine oil cooler
- Short shift gear linkage
- Digital gauges to monitor engine oil temperature and pressure, gearbox oil temperature and water temperature
- Relocation of ECU and fuse board to interior of car
- Pro Alloy Fuel Tank
- Vibratechnic Engine Mounts
- Rebuilt and uprated 5-speed gearbox
- Replacement OEM Clutch with OEM Flywheel lightened and balanced
- Turbos rebuilt to original T25 specification
Finished in Titanium Silver, the interior features red Willans harnesses standing out against the two-tone grey Alcantara and black leather seats. This Noble also features the ‘Low Drag’ 3R/M400 front clam.
With an extensive history file, the car has been thoroughly checked over by the experienced Hilton & Moss team and the car will be freshly serviced and supplied with a 12-month warranty for additional peace of mind.
The full list of work carried out to the car is available upon request and viewings can be arranged immediately at our Bishops Stortford showroom.
