The BAC Mono is a lightweight single-seated road car designed by Briggs Automotive Company. In matter of looks, its design has been inspired by strict track-only machine. It is the best vehicle for drivers who want to experience a joyful, perfect driving tool but do not want the fun to be restricted to the track only. What allowed more freedom to the designers is its single seating position, leaving more space for styling of the car. The car has a fairly narrow middle section which could not have been possible if it was two-seated.
The body of BAC Mono is made of steel safety cell having a bodywork of carbon fiber. The steel safety cell ensures maximum safety to the car. It features a FIA compliant steel rollover structure, a sophisticated side impact structure and a front carbon crashbox. BAC Mono is powered by a 2.3 liter inline 4-cylinder engine developed by Cosworth. This engine produces 280 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque. The transmission is handled by an F3 spec 6-speed sequential gearbox from Hewland. The company targets the MONO to achieve a top speed of 170 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds.
The BAC MONO’s suspension system is a fully-adjustable setup with damping elements made by SACHS Racing. It is fitted with 295mm ventilated discs where the AP racing brakes provide the stopping power. The company working for Mono is based in the UK. Five industry professionals, including designers and engineers are working for the company. Only 35 examples of the Mono are planned to be built. Even before the first prototype was finished, 10 Monos were sold. The asking price is £66,625 ($106,488).
