    Nobel recovers stolen M400s

    Noble has paid a Ł6000 ransom to recover two cars stolen during a raid on its Leicestershire HQ. The two M400s had been missing since the January raid, during which a M12 GTO (below) was also taken, but crashed into a ditch by the raiders within a mile of the factory.

    Boss Lee Noble received a phone call offering the return of the cars for cash, and was led to two lock-up garages where the undamaged M400s had been hidden.

    Exactly - previous owners none. Mileage 2000 miles.
    Who would buy these after than...unless there is a nice discount.

    If they were stolen from teh factory, they were probably only just finished and you wouldnt really fit trackers if they were still in the factory.

    Re: Nobel recovers stolen M400s

    My boss has got an M400 and heard the story on the pistonheads forum. The main reason they wanted one of the M400's back was that it was the press car and had quite a few substantial 'tweaks' done to it and losing it meant a few years up the spout. Supposedly the ransom started at 100k and Nobel told them to f off! Not bad to get them down to 6k and the cars being untouched.

    If I'd known I would have offered 7K for it.
    They should have ebayed it and got more.
