The brilliantly named Rocketeer, who over the last two years have sold over 70 of their Jaguar engine conversion kits for Mazda MX-5, is shifting direction slightly.

Rocketeer co-founder, Bruce Southey told me: “With a view to maintaining the highest quality and delivering on our original vision of building tactile, visceral, analogue sportscars, we are going to focus our business on fully built resto-mod cars and turnkey conversions in future. Engine kit sales will cease at the end of 2019. However, we will, of course, continue to support any self-build projects currently in progress.
