Noble M14 Car 2004

(from Noble Release) Having conquered the sports car market over the five years, Noble is now launching an all-new model, will firmly establish it at the end of the supercar market.

The British M14 is set to take on rivals, such as the 911 Turbo and Ferrari 360 Modena, a tantalising mix of class-leading dynamics, performance, a finely crafted and equipped cabin, and levels of that will appeal to who wish to use their car every

Head of design, Lee Noble, of the M14: We aim to catch an entirely new with this model, one cares as much about the of leather used in the cabin as how the car will accelerate to 100mph. We anticipate that M14 buyers demand convenience, without any in exclusivity or sophistication. Im satisfied these criteria have achieved without any compromise.

at a £74,950, the M14 will be the flagship of the range, falling into above the existing M12 models. The new up looks like this:

M14 a £74,950 (new)

Noble a £55,995 (new)

Noble M12 a £49,950

Noble M12 GTC a £44,950

Noble GTO-3 a £47,950


The 2004 British Show will see the Noble M14 for the first time. Far from a mere concept, the show styling, interior, drivetrain and represent what will production when the car goes on in October this year.

the M14 s conception, Lee Noble has focused on a form that eschews design trends, and majors on a far emotive shape, led by broad, curves along the cars an aggressive front treatment and a yet imposing rear end.

Passion has dominated the M14 s design Lee, but we ve also ensured the car has a thoroughly bespoke feel in its

This fact is obvious you look more closely at the beautifully engineered door hewn from billets of six circular rear light which make reference to supercars from the past; the screen, which reveals the s plenum chamber protruding the perforated aluminium engine and the body-coloured rear diffuser, cuts deep into the panel, highlighting the twin which exit from its Overall, 95 per cent of the components make up the M14 (excluding the drivetrain) are from the current M12 series of and an additional 70 per cent of components are now in house, compared with Noble models.

While the M14 the current M12 s wheelbase, its length has by 178mm to 4267mm and its width by to 1935mm. As a result, more has been liberated in the cabin, with the M12, and there are now two compartments, one behind the engine, and one at the of the car. This increase in has also helped Noble significant crash protection in the and deformable sections at the front and of the M14, with a view to it full European Type in the future.

Lee Noble s provenance as a of performance cars has been and it s this experience which has that the aerodynamics of the M14 will exceptional stability, as well as an top speed of 190mph.


Noble has again to adopt a highly-modified of Ford s 3.0-litre V6, mated to a manual gearbox, for use in the M14. The which in base form powers certain Jaguar has proved particularly durable in years of Noble M12 development and

Like the GTO-3R and M400 the engine employs twin but uses an engine map developed for the M14. In common with the M400 model, the M14 will forged pistons to ensure Maximum power will be at 6100rpm, with a wholesome ft of torque at 4750rpm.

Estimated will be 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, in 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 190mph.

But benchmark figures tell half the story. The Noble M14 s delivery has been fine-tuned to much of the engines potential minimal effort. In-gear should be class-leading, with 90 per cent of the engines torque at just 2750rpm. And in typical style, the engine will be and tractable from as low as 1000rpm, the M14 s versatility in every day driving

A cultured exhaust note has engineered to excite the senses acceleration, but remain civilised at speeds.

Twin intercoolers now in the M14, and are mounted behind rear wheel arch. location has two clear advantages: it vital space at the back of the car for a compartment; and cooler air can now be ducted each internal wheel cover, rather than the engine, improving the efficiency of the

The ratios in the M14 s six-speed gearbox been designed to specifically its power and torque characteristics, the engines linear delivery. In top the M14 pulls 26.5mph per 1000rpm, it a remarkably relaxed cruising with 70mph registering over 2600rpm. This which is mated to an automatic differential, has received extensive in Nobles even more M400 model, and has proved durable.

A completely new gearshift mechanism, drivers slick, finger-light completes the package.


One of Lee Noble s design briefs was to a cabin for the M14 that conveyed a of expensiveness, by paying special to textures, finish and feel.

in the finest Italian leather uses the same supplier as for the M14) there is no mistaking the M14 aura of quality and luxury. The leather extends throughout the and is complimented by grey Alcantara lining and a gear tunnel and console formed in a gunmetal-coloured material. The floor and some sections of the cabin are trimmed in 80 per cent wool carpet.

are even leather sill incorporating the Noble logo, for to lean against while the car.

The stunning and sumptuous which will be standard in all are manufactured specifically for Noble. feature a carbon fibre for strength and lightness, and are trimmed in the top-grade leather seen in the cabin. Both seats fore and aft adjustment, as well as backrests and tilt adjustment.

occupant space has been in the cabin by reducing the width of the tunnel and re-designing the floorpan. As a the M14 has a maximum 1160mm of legroom for and passenger (up 30mm on that in the current M12) and 950mm of (M12 + 20mm). We would occupants of up to 5 to sit comfortably in the M14 s cabin.

Equipped like no other the M14 will come with the

Nobles key objective when the control layout of the M14, was to the driver to focus on the road and not on a plethora of switches outside of peripheral vision. For this the most frequently used are performed by a bank of six buttons on the steering wheel boss. here, the driver can operate the warning lights, heated and multi-function display housed in the cluster (which in turn data on water temperature, boost, oil pressure and trip

The remaining buttons control the and rear boot, and fuel-filler cap

As a result, the main dashboard and area is clutter free. A cylindrical air vent sprouts each corner of the dashboard, in to secondary face vents on the centre console. Above are the three air conditioning controls and a which can also incorporate navigation as a cost option.

Two stalks take care of wiper/washer and indicator functions.

The cluster comprises a speedometer and the graphics and needles of which blue when the ignition is on. As the engine revs rise, the needle changes from to pink as it sweeps past the increment, and from pink to red 6100rpm to the 7200rpm engine cut All illuminated controls dim automatically the headlights are switched on.

A total of trimmed storage areas are around the M14 s cabin, reinforcing the remit as a practical, everyday There are two leather-covered bins on the inside of each sill than on the doors, where are prone to rattle more) a open shelf in front of the and driver, and a central cubby the handbrake lever.

In addition to cabin stowage, the M14 has carpeted luggage compartments, one at the of the car, and one behind the engine Each compartment holds 150 litres, offering ample for two peoples luggage, with being gained to each via switches on the steering wheel.


The M14 s chassis has been from that used on the praised Noble M12. the change in design emphasis the M14, it was felt that the suppleness in the M12 s ride, combined its class leading levels of and composure, would lend perfectly to the new cars design Consequently, the existing chassis has refined “ rather than changed “ to suit the M14.

All M14 will be made from GRP composite (Noble may also carbon fibre in future), over a steel spaceframe, is reinforced with bonded and alloy panels. A full over cage extends the inside of the M14 s cabin, adding to what will be our stiffest structure to date.

Suspension is by wishbones all round, with springs and alloy uprights. and pinion steering, with power assistance is geared to 2.5 from lock to lock, a far tighter turning circle the current M12.

Since the of the M14 has only grown by 70kgs to it is anticipated that the immensely braking system from the comprising 330mm ventilated all round, with four-piston will be more than for this application. A switchable control system, working the cars ECU, will security when the car is being in adverse conditions.

For the M14, Noble has adopted a new design of ten-spoke wheel. Rim at the rear has increased from 10 to 11J and at the 8J rims are used. Tyre also increase from x 18 to 295/35 x 18 at the rear and from x 18 to 235/40 at the front.
