    Default 2007 Noble M400 For Sale - Chattanooga TN (NUS0157)

    SOLD
    Miles: 5,215
    Location: Chattanooga, TN

    I'm selling my 2007 Noble M400 and here's the scoop.


    MY NOBLE M400 UPGRADES & STORY:

    My Noble was the last new Noble ever sold by 1G Racing (according to what they told me when I purchased it). I had been in the hunt for a dedicated track car and when I contacted Dean Rosen at 1G Racing in January 2009, I found that they had one remaining Noble M400 which they had built out themselves and used it for testing. I picked the car up in February 2009 and took the car to 9 HPDE track events over the balance of 2009. In the fall of that year, I took the car to Performance Autowerks in Tallahassee, Florida, one of the top Noble performance shops in the US and had the following upgrades and improvements done: flashed the engine, upgraded the brake ducts, tunnel cooling, carbon wing, aluminum front splitter with adjusters, full fire suppression system, Setrab oil cooler.

    In November 2009, with just 3,962 miles, the engine was blown at Road Atlanta. The blown engine caught fire briefly in the engine compartment but was promptly put out with a fire extinguisher by a corner worker at the track. Following the incident, the car was taken back to Performance Autowerks. There they went through the car completely, installing a new Noble engine and repairing/replacing every component that was damaged from the engine compartment fire (at a cost of $22K). I have the invoice if you are a serious buyer. Additionally, I had the car repainted, which was actually a higher quality paint job than the original one, with the two red stripes painted on versus a vinyl decal as is the case on some Nobles. The car's latest dyno reflects 464 bhp at the wheels and torque of 466 lb-ft.

    Since getting the car back in early 2010, the car has never been back on track (except for one test session at VIR to get it tuned properly). It has been a garage queen with just occasional driving around town. With 5215 miles on the car today, the new engine has just over 1,000 miles on it with zero HPDE track miles. The front headlight has a small crack in it but other than that the car is in excellent condition and I just had it gone through completely in Tallahassee, Florida just a few months ago. It's ready for a new owner who will continue to enjoy this rare, one of a kind vehicle.

    I can vouch for the fact that this car is an absolute animal in terms of raw power, exhaust sounds that will quicken your heartbeats, acceleration that will give you an undeniable adrenaline rush, and continuous stares and thumbs ups from everyone who sees it. For the money, there is hardly a car that will push all the right buttons like this one does.

    The reason I am selling the car is that honestly I never drive it. I have a couple of Nissan GT-R's -- one an occasional driver and the other is a fully prepped race car that I have developed over the last 5 years and I race it in the NASA road racing series. My racing GT-R has offered me all the speed fixes I've needed so the Noble only gets driven on a rare occasion. So it's time to find it a new home.

    Below are just a few photos of the car. SOLD November 2018

    Beautiful Noble! Is it still for sale? I am from Chattanooga (currently living in IL) and looking for a unique car for cruises and HPDE days ... I am interested in this vehicle but it will be May before I will be back in TN. If it's still available, I would love to look at it then if that is possible?

    I bet this thing is a blast up Signal Mountain road!
