The Exocet uses the entire drivetrain and electrical system from a first or second generation (1989-2005) Mazda MX5. With hundreds of thousands sold worldwide between 1989 and 2005, the MX5 is the bestselling two-seater sports car in history. It’s reliable, balanced and lightweight design features a front-engine, rear-wheel drive and a soul that descends from the popular British sports cars of the 60s. The underlying driveline remained relatively unchanged throughout the entire model run and it forms the perfect mechanical base for the Exocet.
