    yes - it has a Ford duratec in it - same block as a Lincoln LS V6 - however - they twin-turbo it.

    "This is the same Ford Duratec aluminum block V6 engine currently used in the Mazda 6, Lincoln LS, Jaguar X-Type and Ford Escape with the addition of twin turbo induction and slight engine mods. With this drivetrain the Noble GTO-3R is capable of going 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds, 0-100mph in 8.8 seconds, a quarter mile in 11.9 seconds, and has a lateral grip of 1.156g with street tires"

    They are from G1 racing -> http://www.1gracing.com/

    They are calling it the best value ever....

    Somewhat symbolic of how the English use to rule the world........

    After China told them to get the fuck out of HK the UK looked so weak.

    Somewhat tantamount to Taliban-ville kicking the Russians out.

    I don't know how i posted in this thread without mentioning the fact that top gear basically said it weighs around 3000lbs...

    and by looking at it, I can't see that weighing the same as a lotus elise...
