The English carmaker Noble has confirmed that a prototype of the M600 Drophead is currently under development and that the vehicle will be introduced in the near future. The company had already released a rendering of the M600 Drophead two years ago.
In terms of powertrain, expect a V8 4.4-litre twin-turbo engine to continue powering the M600 Drophead Prototype.
In the standard M600, the V8 is able to produce 650 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the 1,200 kg coupe manages to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 225 mph (362 km/h). Because of the extra weight, the Drophead will likely be a little slower.
The power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed Oerlikon Graziano manual transmission, but it is rumoured that a paddle shift transmission will also be available for the future cars.
It’s still unclear if Noble M600 Drophead Prototype will enter series production, but many people have already shown interest in buying a drop-top version of the M600.
