Noble M12 3R GTO

noble M12 3 GTOInstantly identifiable by its faired-in bi-xenon headlights and bespoke ten-spoke alloy wheels, the 3R adds a standard Quaife tourque-biasing differential and the latest Getrag six-speed gearbox with closer ratios and a higher top gear. The cabin is fully trimmed in leather as standard and extra soundproofing reduces engine and road noise. Items such as a Sony CD/tuner, map pockets and engine start button are included in the price.

All M12 GTO-3Rs have the latest Getrag-Ford six-speed gearbox, which is controlled by a slick and short-throw gearshift. Closer intermediate gear ratios offer improved acceleration, while a higher top gear allows lower engine revs at crushing speeds, meaning better fuel consumption and less engine noise.

"The 3R mixes brutal performance with added style and refinement."
