Remember Lee Noble? He is guy who gave the world the Noble M12, the M600 and many other supercars under the brand that was formed after his own name. Ironically though, Lee doesn’t work for Noble anymore and has started a new company called Fenix Automotive. His services have been hired by a Polish carmaker, Arrinera Automotive S. A., to engineer a new supercar to take on the established names in the business. Also Read - Video : Drive to Discover S4: The Honda Amaze travels from Visakhapatnam to Kolkata

The first prototype has now been unveiled and we can’t help but compare the front end to the Lamborghini Gallaro / Aventador, especially with the scissor doors raising their arms in the background. The tailgate gets a heavy dose of LEDs but optical light-guides would have looked more up-to-date for a to-be supercar. The Arrinera supercar has been designed by Palvo Burkatskyy, however, the chassis design is credit to Lee Noble.
The chassis is made up of high-strength steel and is said to offer exceptional deformation resistance while being extremely light. Arrinera will also offer optional carbonfibre / Kevlar materials for the body, interiors and floor of their debutant supercar.
The Arrinera will be powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine which puts out 650 PS of power and 820 Nm of torque! 0-100 comes in 3.2 seconds and the top speed is restricted to 340 km/h.
The Arrinera supercar’s production version is expected to be ready in the next 12 months and will attract a price of £ 100,000 (Rs 80-lakh approx)
