Production of Noble supercars is to be stepped up following a week of order taking at the British International Motor Show.

The Leicestershire based company, which only entered the industry two years ago, has been showing off three new models at this year’s show in Birmingham and reported today that a significant amount of orders have already been placed, with more expected before the end of the week.

Also on the stand is the 100th Noble to roll out of the factory – an M12 GTO – which will be delivered to its new owner shortly after the show ends.

Noble sales and marketing manager Alan Wallace said: “We are absolutely delighted with the response we are getting and the interest which is being shown in the cars.”

Although reluctant to admit just how many orders have been taken on the stand, Wallace said they were across the range of models, with particular interest shown in the GTO-3R and the top of the range convertible.

The confirmed orders mean production of all models will be stepped up and customers signed up this week will take delivery early next year.
