It has been nearly 18 months since Alex Kersten drove our prototype MXV6 for a feature on the Car Throttle YouTube channel. Overwhelmed with excitement, Alex declared that was prepared to do 'bad things' to get his hands on one (this isn't a surprise, it does have that effect on people). 

Since then, Phil (Alex' much loved, MX-5) has had some work in p...

Once again, the Rocketeer MXV6 has captured the interest of the press. This time, a relatively new publication, and very welcome in our books, Total MX-5 Magazine.

I have now driven my NA with the Rocketeer conversion for a 1,000 miles across a range of different roads. The car drives amazingly well. The V6 engine provides fantastic torque from about 1200 rpm and produces a smooth linear power delivery. In short, the car can be a...

My story begins with the article in Autocar, which made me ring Bruce, and pay my deposit all in quick succession. Mine was to be the first Turnkey, as I am no mechanic, and liked the reassurance of it being done by the professionals. - I am certainly glad I went that...
