    Default 2005 Noble M12 GTO-3R

    This rare one owner car is in showroom condition. It has always been kept in a climate controlled garage, and it has never been wrecked or driven on a track.

    The chassis number is NUS0073. It has close to 5,500 miles. I am asking $55,000.

    If you are interested or have any questions, you can contact me here or by e-mail at smddad@gmail.com.

    S0VERE1GN, hopefully I'll have it sold by then. Thanks, though.

    Understandably, we all bought our Noble-Rossions for different reasons. I concur with Tavoli. Driving a Noble on open rural roads is wonderful, but pushing it at the track is exhilarating, and what an forgiving car to do it in.

    Good luck getting your's sold soon and for a good price, smd. It's gorgeous.

    Tavoli, GLWS? That's a new one on me.

    Travoli, on the one hand, you're absolutely right. It's almost a shame that a Noble, any Noble, has never been in its natural habitat (the race track). On the other hand, I think this is a selling point for some potential buyers. When cars are driven hard, they invariably suffer wear and tear, and parts need to be replaced much sooner than they would otherwise. And since my car hasn't been driven hard, potential buyers can be confident that everything works as new and the brakes and tires, for example, wouldn't need to be replaced anytime soon.

    Bill, thanks. I appreciate it.

    Definitely a selling point. Although some in the Noble market may prefer a lightly prepped, track-proven car. These cars are great in both street and track settings. It makes for a unique market with individual buyer preferences.

    Either way, I was just joking around. This is a beautiful car and I'm sure we'll be welcoming a new Noble family member soon.

    I absolutely agree with you on both points SMD. Took mine to the track a few times in 09 and 10, but unfortunately didn't get ther last year. In 09 and 10, I was under the rear clam and under the car before and after every event. There was always something that needed to be tightened, insulated, replaced, checked, etc. If you keep on top of it you have a safe, reliable car, but it's a lot of work and extra dough. As you pointed out, tires and brakes are quick to wear. I hope to get out to the track this year (and spend a lot more time maintaining it).

    Travoli, sorry if I came off snippy, as it wasn't my intention. Thanks for the compliment, and I hope you're right about welcoming a new member to the Noble family soon. I would love for the next owner to drive it more than I have.

    Bill, I imagine the clutch can only take so much abuse as well, especially given the engine's low-end torque output. That's probably a fairly major expense, too. Alas, you've gotta pay to play.
