Noble M600 Supercar - They Finally Built One

Those who read my posts will know that I generally despise featuring "supercars" of any type, but hey, it's Saturday, and if any day was designed for people to forget they're not millionaires, it's today.
Top Gear fans may vaguely remember the M600 being tested in the fourth quarter of 2009 (to the best of my recollection), but the concept seemed to disappear after that. What happened?

Noble has announced - perhaps unintentionally - that an M600 has come off the production line recently. Under the circumstances, I believe a brief overview of the specifications is in order. First of all, this British supercar (yuck, but let's get past it together) has a twin-turbo 4.4 liter Yamaha engine. This engine can be used in three different power levels, thanks to the Adaptable Performance Control switch, and those levels are Road, Track, and Race. The horsepower levels for each are 450, 550, and 650 brake horsepower respectively. The curb weight is 2,775 pounds and the M600 hauls ass off the line with its 0-60 timed at under 3 seconds. Top speed is reportedly 225mph.
The price for an M600 is approximately $XXX,XXX. And yes, I realize those are X's. Just pretend you can afford it, sit back, and have a beer. That's what I do.
