BAC Mono

UK based Briggs Automotive Company has revealed the BAC Mono, a single-seat open-top road racer, that is said to be the first single-seater production car in the world.

The BAC Mono weighs just 540kg and is powered by a 2.3 litre 4 cylinder engine by Cosworth that delivers 280bhp and is coupled to a F3-spec 6-speed sequential gearbox by Hewland. 0-60mph comes on just 2.8 seconds while the top speed is 170mph.

The Mono features a carbon-fibre shell wrapped around a single-passenger steel safety cell and comes with an FIA-compliant steel rollover structure.

BAC will only build 35 Monos this year, and the first 10 are already spoken for. The prices start at £66,625 +tax, and if you are fast enough you can order your own Mono through SuperVettura.
