Vision

It is a simple idea, almost as old as the motor car itself, take something great and make it ‘better’. That is not to suggest the MX5 isn’t as good as it can be; it is but for a broad market. Rocketeer takes the MX5 platform in a new direction creating a particular niche of automotive experience previously unavailable.

Since its inception, the MX5 has punched well above its weight and is ranked alongside far more exotic hardware for driving pleasure honours among journalists. Most agree that the MX5 modest power is not a distraction from its capabilities; however, few would argue that it couldn’t benefit from a bit more!

 

Forced induction offers a viable answer to this; indeed the stock MX5 lump was in fact designed for just that, and it naturally responds well to such adaptation. Rocketeer takes a more radical and exotic approach: an entire heart (and soul) transplant.

About us

Bruce Southey and Tom Bullick met at Overfinch. Bruce was Head of Design, and Tom was at the sharp ‘customer facing’ end in sales. Their interactions were frequent with unusual customer demands needing realisation by the design team. The conversations would, more often than not, take a more philosophical direction.

 

As petrol heads, Bruce and Tom soon discovered a common sentiment that something was missing in the world of the automotive experience. The inevitable (and of course valid) pursuit for mainstream manufacturers of quality, legislation, safety not to mention profit, was leading to a deficit of charm and character in their offerings. Competent as the product undoubtedly are.

 

There is a tuning ‘sub culture’ which demonstrates clearly the human need to create. To imagine and dream. To experiment and build. To mend, modify, upgrade or improve. It’s why we played with Lego as children; it’s why some are forever changing their perfectly good hi fi equipment in pursuit of a better sound; it’s why we take things apart without being able to put them back together; it’s why there is a kit car market and why grownups play with model trains. And it should all be celebrated.

 

To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction (Newtons 3rd law). Rocketeer is fundamentally about a reaction to the mainstream. A pursuit of the pure and soulful instead of the anodyne. Accessible instead of opaque.Visceral and simple instead of detached and complex.

 

The name Rocketeer is intended to embody the creative and adventurous spirit associated with the need in every car enthusiast to do something different.
