  • Description

    At a press conference in Vienna's Hotel Prince Eugen Jan. 24, Princess Soraya, former wife of the Shah of Persia, announced that she had become a co-director in a British firm that manufactures small cars featuring moulded fibre-glass bodies.

    Mr Noble, of York Noble Industries Ltd, said a four-wheel version of the "Nobel-200" -normally a three-wheel vehicle - would be produced in Austria shortly. Unfortunately for the organisers, the main purpose of the press conference - to publicize the "Nobel-200" - was sidetracked, as newsmen fired question after question at the usually inaccessible Princess Soraya".
