British supercar designer Lee Noble has teamed with Fenix Automotive to begin production of their newest low volume joint venture, aptly named the Fenix.  Noble expects the supercar to weigh approximately 2650 Lbs. and will use either the LS3 or the LS9 (ZR1) supercharged motors.  Pricing is expected to be $86,000 for the LS3 equipped car and $120,000 for the LS9 version.  The car will be assembled in South Africa for sale in Britian.
