Noble M15 using twin-turbo Volvo V8

Noble will be equipping its M15 model with a variant of the V8 4.4L found in Volvo XC90. Past Nobles have been using a twin-turbo variant of Ford`s V6 3.0L Duratec, but the all new M15 will be using instead a twin-turbo V8 — 650 horsepower.

With the brand new engine, the M15 will have the weigh at 1,100kg and it`s 30% stiffer than M12. Performance will be also improved, now taking only 3 seconds to run from 0-60. The V8 powered M15 has the price expected to begin at €150,000.
