Prototype cars are always especially interesting because they show all of the designer's original intentions before the necessities of production forced changes. That is exactly the case for this Ascari F/GT prototype penned by British supercar specialist Lee Noble that is currently for sale on eBay Motors. It has never been registered and never been significantly driven, according to the seller.
Few visionaries have bred as many supercar brands as Lee Noble. The British sportscar guru is responsible for the Noble M12 and M400, the Ascari Ecosse, the Ultima GTR, Rossion Q1 and Salica GT, to name just a few. And now he's looking to add one more to the list with the announcement of his latest project: Fenix Automotive.
With work is continuing on the successor to the M12 and M400, Noble Automotive has apparently decided to get a quick cash infusion by selling manufacturing rights to those outgoing models to its US distributor, 1g Racing. Hamilton, Ohio based 1g has been the official sales arm for Noble, assembling the vehicles to comply with component car manufacturing standards. This new deal will allow 1g to manufacturer the M12 and M400, but they will have to re-badge and re-name those vehicles by July 15th.
