New version of MEV Exocet looks way cool

First glimpse of the new version of the MEV Exocet due for launch at this weekend’s National Kit Car Motor Show at Stoneleigh and one of a whopping four new models from Stuart Mills.

The ‘new’ Exocet features revised wishbones, HiSpec brakes, plus new headlights, while the car is lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic, although it’s worth pointing out that the original Exocet remains available.

Some lovely detailing. Looking forward to seeing this one

Obviously, we’ll have more information, including pricing, here next week.

Momo’s latest gearknob is the SK51 (reminding us that the company is now in its 51st year).

It may be brand new but the style is traditional and reminiscent of items used on open sportscars in the 1960s.

The solid billet aluminium knob adds weight to the shift for more precise and deliberate gear-shifting while the larger diameter is ergonomically better than most stock gear-shift knobs.

Horizontal flutes and hex nut details give this satin finished knob a sense of purpose and the bright yellow MOMO logo proclaims its pedigree.

The SK51 has an RRP of £61.79 inc VAT and is available from 01268 More >

Standard L322 on left, with converted car on right. In the middle is a forthcoming bodykit...

Latest body conversion to hit our market is the DIGhani, which transforms a Mk3 L322 Range Rover (2002-2012) into a current generation L405 (since 2012) model.

We’ve seen Rangey conversion kits before in the form of the Range Over product, which turned a Mk2 P38S (1994-2002) into a pretty convincing visual interpretation of a later L322.

DIGhani is based in Bradford, West Yorkshire and has yet to set prices although they are said to be competitive. We’ll have more information on this one soon.
