Fenix Automotive has revealed its first images of a new supercar designed by Lee Noble. Since parting with Noble Automotive, Lee has wanted to build a successor to his giant-killing M12 and he's promising this as yet unnamed new car moves the game on in terms of design.

Lee says: "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."

Power for the new supercar - which is expected to cost around 75,000 - is supplied by a GM V8 usually used in the Corvette. A 'base' 480bhp model will be offered alongside a 6.2-litre supercharged version from the ZR1 with 638bhp. Performance expectations for the higher output model are 0-100mph in less than seven seconds and a top speed of around 200mph.

The first prototypes are currently being built at Fenix's South African production facility, Noble admitting: "I'm itching to get the car back to the UK where I can set it up on roads I know well." Sales are anticipated to start in the second half of this year.
