BAC Mono

The phrase ‘road legal racing car’ has been well used and all too often the subject is a poorly conceived failure. Not so with the BAC Mono. It may not have brand heritage or an exotic V12 but it looks fantastic and it goes even better. It is a skinny carbon fibre creation that is at home belting around a track and at a push will get you home afterwards as long as you didn’t bring luggage… and it isn’t raining.

The single seat design provides a Formula 1 style driving position with exposed pushrod suspension at the front and a raspy Cosworth engine behind. 280 horsepower is plenty for a car so light and along with an F3 spec 6-speed sequential gearbox will give instant power.

The BAC Mono ranks up against the Ariel Atom as a benchmark for radical, lightweight sports cars. The small British team at BAC an extensive track record in the auto industry but we are yet to see if they are equally business astute.
