Press Release 24 July 2011
Exocet Cars Ltd is excited to announce the manufacture of the MEV Exocet kitset car in Auckland, New Zealand.
The Exocet is a New Zealand first, being a locally manufactured exo-skeletal car.
Exocet is a kit car based on a single donor vehicle, the Mazda Miata / MX5 / Roadster. Benefits include:
- Best value kit on offer in NZ. Expect to get a car on the road from NZ$15k
- Easiest kit car to build, with no prior mechanical expertise or specialist tools required
- Unique styling
- Retains the reliability of the MX5, with much enhanced performance through drastic weight reduction
Tom Carpenter, Director of Exocet Cars said “we’re really excited to have the NZ license to manufacture these brilliant kits for Kiwis. They are incredibly popular in the UK with 100 kits sold in the first year and no sign of letting up. With this much fun, for this little money, I just hope we can keep up with demand!”
The first demonstrator will be on the road by the end of 2011.
