BBC One East Midlands interviewed Lee Noble, talking about his history and latest supercar project, the Fenix, which he is preparing to move into the production phase.
The Leicester-based businessman hopes the Fenix supercar will fill a gap in the automotive market, as an affordable sports vehicle.
How was the ride? Check out BBC presenter Kylie Pentelow’s reaction after a passenger ride in a Noble M12 with Lee Noble.
Renowned designer and engineer, Lee Noble, and his co-director, Chris Murray, formed Fenix Automotive in April 2008 as a launch platform for Lee’s new supercar, due out in the second half of 2010.
During his time with Noble Automotive, Lee created perhaps one of the most iconic low volume supercars of the 21st century, the M12, which put his talents on the map to a global audience and won him a succession of accolades from the motoring media.
Fenix Automotive’s new car will help re-ignite the flame that was lost when the M12 ceased production. And while its design, drivetrain and chassis represent fresh thinking from Lee, the M12’s original purpose – to offer exceptionally high performance and exquisite handling for well below £100k – remains the same.
