Noble M15 to be powered by 650 hp Volvo V8 engine?

Noble launched the M15 as a concept first in 2006. It was powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine with a maximum output of 455 hp and 455lb/ft of torque. But now rumors say that the production version will be powered by the same V8 engine as the Volvo XC90.

If in the XC90, the 4.4 liter V8 engine produces 311 hp, in the M15, with a couple of turbochargers it will boost power to around 650bhp. With a weight of 1100kg, the M15 is 30% stiffer than the M12 thanks and has better weight distribution despite the larger engine.

The M15 Concept accelerates from 0-60mph in less than 3.3 seconds and 10 100mph in less than 8s and hits a top speed of 200 mph. The production version is expected to be priced at around £104,000.
