If you think having a Corvette or an M3 as your track car is too mainstream, consider buying this supercharged V-8-powered Exomotive Exocet instead. It makes 534 horsepower and weighs less than your average Miata, making it an unbelievably capable track weapon.
The Exocet is a tube-frame kit car designed to use Miata drivetrain and suspension parts. This one, assembled by the Colorado-based Flyin’ Miata, uses an LSA crate motor from General Motors instead. Rated at 534 hp and 586 lb-ft of torque, it’s more than enough for the 2000-pound street-legal kart to embarrass modern mid-engine supercars on track.
Power is routed to the rear wheels via a T56 six-speed transmission and a limited-slip differential sourced from a Cadillac CTS-V. There are AFCO Coilovers, Wilwood brakes, and 15-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes R888 tires to help the driver maintain some level of control over that monstrous powerplant.
