If it's distinctly noble, could it possibly be the Noble M600? If so, I wonder how did they manage to pass US laws? That car doesn't have ABS, TC, Stability Control and even Airbags. It's the closest car to a modern day F40 and since you really like analogue supercars the M600 is the only car that comes in my mind.
The one today had ABS, TC, and airbags (no stability control). Officially it puts out 450, 550, and 600bhp, unofficially it makes well north of 700 in the top setting, but that "mustn't be used on public roads". Yeah right, buddy. Drives a lot like a Falcon F7, more so than any other supercar, the F40 is much more nervous and unforgiving (but more exciting). The skinny is, you can buy the full road-going version, replete with all the safety stuff and electronic doodads, and it's DOT approved and meets EPA stuff. OR, you can buy a normal chassis (that weighs 200kg less), have it shipped from the UK, then buy the drivetrain and have it put in by the same folks who build the Ariel Atom for North America. The latter gives you the exact same car they're selling in Euroland, and although it's only supposed to be used on a track, since it's a US-integrated "kit" many states will let you register it as such. You can also pick and choose which safety bobbins you want for your kit, like I'd want driver and passenger front airbags, TC (that can be switched off), and ABS (can also be disabled). It'll do 0-60 in 2.9s, 100 in 2.5s more, and the 1/4 mi in 10.5s. The new system blips the throttle on downshifts, like the new Stingray, and can disable half its cylinders in Normal mode to net you up to 22MPG in mixed driving.
Some club guy I didn't know was there, I think he was likely the youngest of all of us, and he asked the company person if we could "get one with paddles". We all turned and stared at him, turns out he can't drive a manual. The stick is the whole point! If you want (or need) paddles, buy a Ferrari and quit wasting our time.
