This Is The Product Of Installing An LSA In An Exocet Kit Car

You may remember the cool little Exomotive Exocet from when we wrote a little feature on it at last year’s PRI show. The Exocet is a tube-chassis kit car that is built using Mazda Miata underpinnings. It is also a great bang for your buck as far as kit cars go.

Flyin’ Miata, a company that upgrades Miatas and swaps V8s into them, also sells Exocets aside to their normal services, and it didn’t take long for the crew to decide that an LSA was going into an Exocet. Yes, a 556 hp supercharged LSA V8 from the second-generation CTS-V in an Exocet chassis, weighing in at 1,900 pounds when all was said and done; talk about an insane power-to-weight ratio!

The customer that Flyin’ Miata built this Exocet for is in for a real treat, as the car was assembled with a set of coilovers, Wilwood disc brakes, Tillet racing bucket seats (supplied by the customer), and a set of Schroth harnesses. Although the LSA is significantly heavier than the 1.6, 1.8, and 2.0-liter four-cylinder Miata engines that the Exocet chassis usually accepts, this Exocet example is still one mean looking track day warrior and canyon carver.

We couldn’t help but notice in Flyin’ Miata’s video that the car looked like it wanted to understeer all the time. Maybe it was the short, technical course that they were testing it on that didn’t provide high enough speeds for the aerodynamics to push the car down to the asphalt, but who knows. All we know is that the owner and his son are going to have great times in this little monster for years to come.
