What do I need to build the Exocet?

Just add your 1990-2005 Mazda Miata donor components

The Donor

The Exocet uses the entire drivetrain and electrical system from a first or second generation Mazda Miata. With 750,000 sold between 1989 and 2005, the Mazda Miata 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.
