Exomotive Exocet XP-1

Exomotive’s first Exocet prototype chassis was sourced from MEV UK after builder Kevin Patrick sent Stuart Mills at MEV a pair of LHD manual racks to mockup the first left hand drive Exocet chassis. This car went on to serve as the basis for the Exomotive Exocet chassis redesign and has helped market the Exocet at dozens of events since it’s completion. It won the first car show it entered, has been featured in Kit Car Builder Magazine, and has had time on tracks like Road Atlanta and Atlanta Motorsports Park.

Build Overview

The Exocet’s chassis is powder coated in Gloss Black and features the original MEV UK body panels. Equipped with a 1.6L JDM-sourced engine, this car serves as an example of a basic, fun street-oriented build that is a blast to drive in the mountains and around town.
