Noble M12 GTO-3R /M400 original owner. (2003) SOLD
Crystal Topaz pearl. (Changes colour shades in different light and viewing angles)
Stunning, immaculate and unique. This car was built in September 2003 with the first factory fitted customer M400 engine, bigger turbos, forged pistons etc, M400 gear linkage, M400 suspension (including front anti roll bar) 6 speed gearbox with LSD, solid brake lines, tack day sump etc by Dave Beasley at the factory. Also fitted Tracker system and Armourfend paint protection. Factory wired battery conditioner connection. Wax oil chassis protection from new.
Full documentation and build correspondence with Lee Noble to authenticate its originality including one-off paint colour (crystal topaz) and unique interior design using Bridge of Weir Leather hide.
The car has never been driven in winter and immaculate throughout. It has undergone mild tuning at Jetstream including Pro Alloy intercooler, Roush stainless exhaust, larger capacity fuel pump and remapped by Trevor Jasper to produce a very drivable 460.8 BHP with 438.2 lb ft torque.
This is truly a one-off collector's car as it was the only factory built 3R with M400 spec and I am the original owner with all original documentation, bills, service history and photos. Includes, spare set of original 3R wheels (immaculate) with original tyres, plus car cover and unique plate.
This car has never been Drag Raced for 0 - 60 times or ragged around boy racer style. As a former Jaguar Motor Vehicle Technicial, I have driven this car with mechanical sympathy and maintained it regardless of cost from new.
Tax and MOT until September 2013.
I assure you, you won't find a cleaner or better kept example anywhere.
If you are interested in viewing the car but have a long drive, I can provide hotel accommodation FOC. Bucket load of photos available. Just e-mail me to forward them.
Please, no time waster, trade or tele-sales.
