D he noble bug: R enters the tradition old beach buggies. Designed as a kit car, the Bug: R relies on the technology of the old Ford Mondeo (built between 2000 and 2007). On its platform, Noble places a steel subframe, which in turn is planked with angular plastic body parts. Doors and roof can be removed, so that the Bug: R offers a lot of fresh air pleasure if required.

Noble is offering the basic chassis and body packages at a price of 4,450 and 4,950 pounds, respectively plus taxes (the equivalent of 5,200 and 5,790 euros) . Noble charges just under 11,700 euros for a pre-assembled rolling chassis with body. As with all kit cars, the buyers then have to add parts such as steering, wheel suspensions and brakes themselves. Of course, the engine is also missing. Various Ford units are available from one to three liters and as diesel and gasoline engines.

New Nobel Sports Car

With the second innovation, Noble is returning to sen sports cars. The Exile is primarily intended for use on the racetrack, but will also come in a roadworthy version. The flat two-seater has a carbon body and gullwing doors. Noble relies on a Ford engine for the drive. The 3.5-liter twin turbo comes from the F-150 Raptor and has 450 hp there. In the Noble Exile with a power-to-weight ratio of just under two kilograms per horsepower, the six-cylinder should be good for sprint times under three seconds. The maximum speed should be beyond 300 km /h. Lee Noble plans to present the final version of Exile at the end of 2017. From 2018, the Exile will go on sale at around 100,000 euros.
