Description

The Mono; a lightweight, ultra-high performance, road legal supercar designed and manufactured using the latest racing technology. Aimed at drivers who seek a purist driving experience and for whom design, engineering excellence and performance are of paramount importance, Mono is an aggressive design and will set a new benchmark in the small, but elite segment of radical, lightweight sports cars.
Car Magazine wrote, “The BAC Mono managed to set a time around Anglesey's Coastal circuit faster than the Radical RXC Turbo 500 and McLaren P1 GTR managed.” They went on to say, “The view is incredible, framed by the sharp edges of the front wings and unencumbered by anything like an aero screen. It focuses the mind like nothing else. The Cosworth-developed 2.3-litre Duratec engine produces 280bhp and it buzzes and vibrates through the chassis and seat.” The Mono weighs just 540kg, meaning it offers a supreme power-to-weight ratio, and gets from 0-60mph in just 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 170mph. Max torque of 206 lb/ft @ 6000 rpm. Tyre manufacturer Kumho used their vast experience in motorsport and road cars to develop a special rubber compound for Mono, which is designed to work with the low weight and optimized pushrod suspension.
The British manufacture BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) was founded in 2009 by brothers Ian Briggs and Neill Briggs. For Neill, BAC is the realisation of a life-long ambition to develop innovative vehicles that show what is possible when we question and challenge convention. The single central-seat gave the designers and project engineers the ultimate blank canvas on which to assemble their dream. The organic, enclosed front and exposed mechanical rear typifies the unique appearance of Mono. The design aesthetic is intended to combine sculpted, sleek, organic forms to provide an emotional, human connection juxtaposing the technical, mechanical elements of the car.
While this vision runs throughout Mono's appearance it was fundamental to the designers that form follow function on all aspects of the car. Above all else, Mono has been designed to optimise the driving position – in the middle, central to the wheels, and the balance of the car. Mono is constructed using high-strength carbon fibre composite around a steel safety cell. The cell is designed to offer maximum safety featuring a FIA compliant steel rollover structure, a sophisticated side impact structure and a front carbon crash box.
Coupled to that 2.3 litre engine is an F-3 spec 6-speed sequential gearbox from Hewland. Suspension is a fully-adjustable pushrod suspension with damping elements made by SACHS Racing. Fitted with 295mm ventilated discs, AP Racing brakes provide stopping power. Limited slip differential is standard.
Mono’s central driving position makes the driver an integral component of the car. The Mono is inspired by the world of extreme sports and designed to cater for those who want the very best equipment for the sport of driving. Monitored and maintained by the factory throughout its life, and to our knowledge no track use. This is indeed a rare vehicle, that will provide endless thrills for the lucky owner.
