I visited the Superformance booth at the Auburn (IN) Spring Car auction this weekend and got to take a ride in this:



Yes, the Noble M12 GTO.


I was the only person in four days who knew what the car was, so the rep' rewarded me with a little ride. Most of the ride was like a parade lap, but behind one of the auction barns, on a short straight, he let me feel what 2100 lbs of supercar moving to 60 in 3.5 seconds felt like.
I was speechless. Zero (read 0.000) turbo lag. Just all 340 lb. ft. doing it's best to introduce your kidneys to your spine. I have never felt such an amazingly wicked burst of power like that.

More amazing then the neck snapping hp & torque is that these cars are now going to be imported to the US as a rolling chassis from S. Africa. We will have our choice of three engines including the new 3.0 litre, twin turbo Duratec that is currently in the GTO 3 in Europe. No price set as of now, but I'm saving my pennies!


The guys at Superformance also have a little Focus project up there sleeve that we at FocalJet will be covering as information becomes available.

So that thing has ties to Ford? Or is it some little company that bought the rights to the engine?

You, sir, are a lucky bastard.
