The History of Mills Extreme Vehicles Ltd


Mills Extreme Vehicles Ltd was set up in 2003 by Stuart Mills and long term family friend Julie Wilson. They had previously been Company directors in other successful firms together and are both avid car enthusiasts, Stuart having had many years or experience with cars and engineering and Julie having had many years with cars and business studies.

Stuarts innovative, blinkers off approach soon became noticed within the world of specialist cars. One off creations for film and commercials put them on the road to success. Julie is always hands on offering help in the workshop and has built her own MEV Exocet but also looks after the business side of things allowing Stuart to concentrate on car projects.

There is now an extensive back catalogue of nearly 30 MEV vehicles, some are still in production and others were just too extreme even though “extreme” is the firm’s middle name.

Many of these creations were offered as kit cars and although the kit car scene is now a shadow of its former self the Company still thrive offering the most successful kit car of modern times, the Exocet. It is a modern replacement for the Lotus or Caterham 7. This is billed as the easiest and most affordable car in the world to build and replaced their Rocket model which cost far more and was far more difficult to build. Sales are also buoyant for their other MX5 based kit, the Aston Martin inspired DBR1 Replicar.

Stuart is also in demand for specialist vehicle consultancy work and also offer electric car solutions.
