BAC Mono is a Formula 1 car that is allowed to venture out on the open road – you have the full advantage of speed and performance with the added legal bonus of not getting pulled over! The Mono is a lightweight, ultra high performance, road legal sports car designed and manufactured with the help of the latest racing technology. This road rocket is aimed at drivers who want to experience speed and performance in its purest form without being confided to a track.
The single central-seat gave the Mono designers and project engineers the ultimate blank canvas and what they came up with exceeded expectations. The organic, enclosed front and exposed mechanical rear is textbook Mono design – the aim was not only to create a performance car, but to enhance it with an aesthetic design.
Mechanically, the Mono is a beast. It weighs 540kg, has a 2.3 liter Cosworth engine to charge 280hp, six-speed sequential box and offers a central driving position as a formula car. This puppy can do 0 to 60mph in 2.8 seconds and 0 to 100mph in 6.7 seconds… high speed eases in at 170mph.
