Avocet from MMI was revealed at the 2008 Autosport International
Motor Show at the NEC in Birmingham, England.
The MMI Avocet is a two seat, lightweight roadster powered by
a Ford 2.0 litre inline 4 cylinder available in two states of
tuning. On offer is an adequate 150 horsepower engine, and a
high-revving uprated 225bhp version developed by Roush. The
top spec engine should give the MMI Avocet a 0-60 time of less
than 5 seconds, and a top speed close to 150 mph.
In an effort to make the MMI more practical and accessible many
of the mechanical components under the composite bodywork are
taken straight off Ford's parts shelf.
