While the state of the extremely rare sports car is now valid for the trash compactor, fortunately all three persons injured during the accident seem to be fine right now.
The Noble M600 is truly rare – in more than six years of production the deliveries might not have even reached triple digit figures yet. And now one of those units has been lost forever, after a total devastation incident that occurred recently in Germany. The accident took place near the town of Neuberg, not far from Frankfurt. Local media outlets report the incident was caused by a young driver of a VW Passat who lost control and swerved across the center line on a corner and found the Noble in its path. The impact wrecked havoc into the rare sports car, the front being totally destroyed – it appears the impact force sent the Passat into a roll.
The 61-year old driver of the Noble and his 19-year old daughter, who was on the passenger seat, were extricated from the wreck with the help of the fire crews who tore open the side of the car. All three, along with the Passat driver, were flown to a hospital but the injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening. Apparently, the M600 involved is reportedly an even rarer Carbon Sport edition – packing the Volvo-based, 4.4-liter, twin-turbo, 650 horsepower V8 engine.
