Exocet NZ was born in 2011 as a result of a discussion between Tom Carpenter and Stuart Mills at MEV (UK). MEV had been producing the Exocet for several months and it was (is) a runaway success.
Initially the idea was simply to import a kit to build up and enjoy here on these fantastic NZ roads. But Stuart explained that he was challenged keeping up with UK demand and wasn’t able to provide the resources to start exporting kits. So, the logical step was for Tom to manufacture the kits here in New Zealand.
The NZ chassis have been modified to pass the local rules and the kits modified to be more comprehensive.
So, you get a great value locally-made kit. And you get supported through the build process, right here, in NZ.
As the number of Exocets grows in NZ, there is a fantastic owners’ group forming. It’s a great feeling to be out in the car you built yourself, with others who have done the same.
Today, Exocet Cars NZ is under the ownership of another extremely passionate all-things-automotive guy, Paul O’Grady. With the benefit of being an accomplished driver, Paul loves to demonstrate the Exocet’s track capabilities as often as possible too.
The demonstrator car is in Beachlands, Auckland and available for viewing and test driving by appointment. Please give us an excuse to go for a drive…!
