When a manufacturer designs a high-performance vehicle, it typically comes with two seats or more. We believe that the exhilarating experience should be shared with others.
However, there are instances when someone prefers to fully immerse themselves exclusively. This is where single-seaters like the Mono from BAC come into play.
The company co-founder and head of product development, Neil Briggs, states that “Mono is an authentic BAC supercar – it delivers the typical – yet not easily achievable – attributes that are part of the BAC DNA like high-performance, lightweight engineering, dynamic chassis, optimized suspension, and an emotional design.”
In other words, it’s a street-legal racer.
The Mono can be likened to a Formula 1 car with its open cockpit, seating for one, lightweight build, and powerful engine. It features a Mountune-built 2.5-liter inline-four engine that delivers 311 horsepower and 231 lb-ft of torque. BAC pairs it with a six-speed racing-spec sequential gearbox.
Based on testing, the Mono can reportedly reach 60 mph from zero in just 2.7 seconds. This impressive performance is made possible by its weight of 1,257 lbs.
BAC has optimized the weight distribution of the Mono, with 41% at the front and 59% at the rear, to enhance its handling and responsiveness.
The use of “world-leading graphene-infused carbon panels” by BAC significantly contributes to the car’s weight reduction.
The aggressive aero configuration of the Mono ensures stability at high speeds. Its capabilities are comparable to the track-only Mono R, but with regulatory approval for use on public roads.
The Mono is equipped with five twin-spoked rims and Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires specifically designed for this car. Production is already underway, and customers can now place their preorders. The price has not been disclosed, but it is expected to be expensive
