I made my first visit to the ‘new’ MEV last week since Stewart and Sylvia Mutch acquired the Exocet kit from Stuart Mills back in June 2019.

The company is based in a very smart 3500 sq ft workshop in Staunton, Gloucestershire and visiting them is a very pleasing experience. They’ve carried on the momentum developed by Stuart Mills with the MX-5-based Exocet and have made a few neat developments themselves.

They have added what they call the ‘S’ – or ‘Sport’ – chassis (£600 extra) which features a bit more triangulation and is aimed at those that want to do a bit more trackday work and it sits between the standard item and full race version (£1200 extra) which features an integral rollcage.

A warm welcome at MEV from Stewart and Sylvia Mutch

For those on a budget Stewart reckons that £7000 will see a very nice example DIY built.

Donor vehicle for the Exocet is the MX-5 (all generations except Mk4) with the kit price for the Mk1, Mk2 or Mk2.5 at £4195 or the Mk3 or Mk3.5 variants at £4795.
