The new Noble M15 has a spec sheet to make any Ferrari owner take notice. A quick rundown: 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, a top speed of 185 mph, and a power output of 445 hp and 445 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbo, 3.0-liter Duratec V-6. Here's the best part, though-it's likely to come to the States. 1g Racing of Hamilton, Ohio, the same bunch who brought Americans the Noble M12 and M400 as rolling chassis, hopes to offer a completely assembled, street-legal M15 starting in early 2008. Built using a steel spaceframe and fiberglass body panels, the 2756-pound, mid-engine M15 features an integrated roll cage and will cost about $150,000, or $25,000 less than its intended targets, more established exotics such as the Ferrari F430 and the Lamborghini Gallardo.
