  • A Corvette ME Already Built?

    Click image for larger version  Name:	image_639.jpg Views:	1 Size:	47.7 KB ID:	1705

    It this really a Corvette ME. No, what Road & Track calls a Corvette ME rendering but already a full size, a real car you can buy now. Thanks to our Vigilance247 for finding this article, bringing it to our attention.

    While many people have made rendering of what a mid-engine Corvette will look like, Noble went one step further: it built the rendering.


    This car, the M500, which debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed today, is meant to be Noble's newest mid-engine supercar. With a 550 horsepower 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6 (Read: Ford EcoBoost), light weight, and a dual clutch gearbox, it has the makings of something very special.

    But I just can't unsee how mid-engine Corvette-y it looks. And that's likely because Noble, which is a rather small company, had to source some obvious parts for its cars from other companies. The tail lights are from a Citroen, but the headlights are straight off a C7 Corvette. And once you notice it, you can't un-notice it.

    See what I mean?

    To me it looks like Noble went on one of many fine car websites–perhaps even this one!–saw a rendering of a mid-engine Corvette, and said "yes, that, build it. Do it before GM can."

    Right now, the M500 is a concept without an interior, but the company would like to build some. Will this exist for real before we see a mid-engine Vette? We'll have to wait and see.

    Wow I actually like this look. I haven't much liked the other renderings we've seen tons of pics of.....but this one I do like.

      I like it a lot. Looks like a beautiful McLaren to me. But I am partial to Corvettes. Lacks, other than its (literally) C7’s headlights, not enough Corvette design characteristics IMO.

        I agree with you John. I actually prefer the styling of fvs’ renders as it relates to the side intake(s). I must admit though, the Noble has an interesting rear deck... exotic looking... I like it.

          Here’s a great picture of the Noble’s rear deck which was found by “sunsalem.”

            I am probably going to get "flamed" on here, but I really don't like this rendering and I hope it turns out to more like others that I have seen. What caught my eye is looking downward on the car in the first picture the pronounce backwards "C" that runs from the window down through the air induction scoop to the rocker area. After I noticed it on the first picture, it really just hurt my eyes in every other view that follow. I did like the styling in the rear, though. But, if I have to approach the car from the driver's door...nah! Really, if those lines are that pronounced, I suspect it would have been noticeable on some of the mules on the road.

            I have seen much better.

            Just my $.02.

              The Corvette will be much more traditional looking than the Noble. My guess is that will could flame the Corvette ME for being “too conservative,” though on the other hand, the C7 was a massive. change from the C6. But based again on the mules, there is no way the Corvette will have massively detached “wings” like the Noble and the Ford GT does.

              BTW, the cousin to the N500, the Noble 600M one can buy today, starts at around $250,000.
