2004 Noble M12 GTO 3R - Phenomenal Condition

Year: 2004
Make: McLaren
Model: 570S
Price: $59000
Mileage: 18000
Color: Titanium Silver
Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing
Location (State): OR
Transmission: Manual
Drivetrain: Rear Wheel Drive

There is no option for Noble so I had to list it as a McLaren 570S, because that is my current dream car. Car is in phenomenal condition. Previous owner did some a couple track events and worked out all the bugs. Car is reliable and could be daily driven with all the creature comforts (except no storage compartments). This has been my favorite/funnest/fastest car Ive owned and is a pure joy to drive. Its also the longest car Ive owned.

Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries or for additional pictures at ktnguye1 at gmail dot com

Stock: 352 crank hp/350 ft-lbs, 0-60, 3.5 seconds, 2300lbs

I have not dynoed, but based on what others are putting down I estimate the following:

420-440 whp/ 430-450 ft-lbs, 0-60, limited by how good of a driver you are and how fast you can shift.

It's definitely more than 99% of people can handle/need.

These are awesome cars. I used to have a 2004 as well and it made 423rwhp - plenty of power to do anything you wanted.

Can you post close up photos of the issues you mentioned?
- crack on dash
- cracks on headlamps
- imperfections on front spoiler
- imperfections on rear wing

Have you had any issues with the AC or had to replace any of the lines?

Thanks.

Thanks TAILWAG,

It really is a fun car and get's a lot of positive comments.

The A/C blows cold and since it was tuned by Troy whether the A/C is on or off does not affect drivability/idle etc (I heard many cars had issues with this). The condenser was replaced a few years ago, besides that no issues.

Pictures of the issues below (I did my best to show them, but some of them are pretty difficult to see due to lighting, etc). You can't see the dash cracks unless you look for them on the outside from the top of the car/through the glass. Also forgot to mention I had some custom metal covers made for the interior where the tubular chassis runs on the inside of the footwells (pictures below). This helps not damage the interior getting in/out and adds a nice touch to the interior in my opinion. They can be removed easily as they are just a snug/slip fit over.

Hi ggkthx,

As you probably know every state is different. What is the normal process for registering cars and getting emissions checked in Georgia? My car is registered, titled as a normal car. I have a regular registration and title that says exactly what the car is. Its not branded as a specialty or kit car. Does your state require obd2 testing on 1996 and newer just a sniffer test or neither? Not that it's guaranteed but I know there is a Noble owner in Augusta, Georgia. If i find out any more info I'll be sure to let you know.
