First glimpse of Fenix Automotive all-new supercar

This is the first glimpse of an all-new supercar from ex-Noble founder Lee Noble, from his fledgling supercar outfit Fenix Automotive.

Not to be confused with the recently-launched Noble M600, this two-seater supercar is due to go on sale later this year, and Noble himself has called it a "natural, but even more focussed successor" to the M12.

Fenix will offer the car with two engines, the flagship model sporting a 6.2-litre V8 engine from the Corvette ZR1 offering 638bhp. This potency and a weight of just 1200kg explain a 0-100mph sprint of less than seven seconds, and a top speed of around 200mph.

The lower-powered version offers a slightly more conservative 480bhp - this model is expected to cost around £70,000.

Speaking about the design of the new car Noble said, 'The new car's styling owes nothing to what I've done before and has quite literally been a 'clean sheet' exercise from the start. It's edgy, with powerful lines, and aerodynamically will be in another league to any of my previous cars.'

Fenix aims to build around 70 cars a year initially, expanding to around 500 a year with sales from overseas markets.
