MEV Superlight


Based on the MEV X5


Building a superlight kit car. This kit was very similar to the MEV X5 but was supplied with a bespoke light weight chassis to replace the MX5 body unit.



​The Superlight was based on the MEV X5 but had a re styled rear end and no roof. It was inspired by the MX5 superlight concept but was also went a step further than the MEVX5 build process in that it had a replacement lightweight space frame chassis. This meant rusty MX5’s could be used as donors and the kit build resulted in a very light car, hence the name. Unlike the Rocket this car was aerodynamic but didn’t sell well at all.
