Fenix Supercar teaser fq

Lee Noble is staging a serious comeback after leaving his former company, Noble Automotive, and is set to launch a new supercar under the Fenix Automotive banner.

Fenix Automotive’s first new product is a completely new design. While it shares similar specs and general shape with the new Noble M600, it has nothing else in common with the latest supercar to bear the Noble name.

The Fenix will be powered by a choice of Chevrolet V8 powerplants. Customers can specifiy either the 480 horsepower LS3, or the 638 horsepower LS9 from the Corvette ZR1. With a projected curb weight of just 1,200 kg, the supercharged Fenix should be a powerhouse performer.

The first prototypes are currently undergoing development around the company’s manufacturing facility in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Sales in the UK are set to begin in the second half of 2010 and U.S. sales are a possibility. The Fenix is expected to offer a level of performance and sophistication that would rival far more expensive sportscars while costing about half as much. No official pricing has been announced yet.

Check out teaser images of the new supercar in the gallery below.
