SONIC 7

 

The MEV Sonic 7 is mechanically identical to the Rocket but offers more weather protection and the option of a full windscreen and hardtop. Ford Focus based means modern components, ease of build and a wide range of power plants from the 115bhp 1.8 to the 170bhp ST170.

The “Sonic7” features a fully triangulated space frame chassis, yet weighs only 67kgs and the car has fully adjustable suspension so you can tune it to suit yourself. It’s a 1.8 Focus based kit with modern sharp styling that complements the company’s popular Rocket kit by having similar lines but more practicality. It is offered with a hard top or soft top roof option, a choice of wings including the aero type, a roll bar and rear window section and a full laminated windscreen with a GRP frame are also options to enable you to customize your Sonic7. A step by step easy to follow build guide takes you through construction.

If you find the exoskeletal looks of the Rocket a little too extreme but still like the idea of 21st century design and proven Ford Focus running gear, then the Sonic 7 is the car for you.

Kit prices are only $10,500 plus GST for a body/rolling chassis that needs just lights, loom, seats and a donor adding. Build time is estimated at 100 hours for someone with limited knowledge and minimal kit building experience. On the road prices will be a very reasonable sub £7,000 if you build one yourself. Weighing in at just under half a ton standard Focus power will give you a staggering 235 BHP per ton, which is more than enough to see off nearly all the production cars you are likely to meet at the lights.

Compared to a Lotus Elise with 156 BHP per ton and a Porsche Boxster with 187 BHP per ton the Sonic7 is a driving experience not to be missed.

Fully welded tubular space frame chassis ready to accept 1.8 or 2.0 Ford Focus components.
