2016 BAC Mono single-seat supercar is a must-see

By ,

Integrating cutting-edge design and technology with precision engineering is the mantra of Briggs Automotive Company (BAC), which is based in Liverpool, U.K.

After stunning the world by bringing Formula-inspired technology to the road with Mono, hailed as “the first and finest road-legal, single-seat supercar” on the planet, BAC is at it again.

Behold the 2016 Mono, powered by a normally aspirated 2.5L Mountune Ford Duratec engine that produces 305 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque. It has a fully adjustable pushrod suspension with Sachs Racing dampers, as well as AP Racing Brakes with 295mm ventilated discs.

The BAC Mono is constructed from high-strength carbon fibre composite and features an FIA-compliant steel rollover structure, a sophisticated side-impact structure, and a front carbon crash box. 

In another world first, BAC has partnered with Haydale Composite Solutions to create rear wheel arches in graphene. This highly advanced material, made of sheets of carbon just one atom thick, is about 20% lighter than standard carbon fibre while being 200 times stronger than steel.

Above all else, the BAC Mono has been designed to optimize the driving position, which rests in the middle, central to the wheels. This makes the driver an integral component of the car, creating an unrivaled synergy between man and machine, BAC says. With this in mind, each customer is fitted for his or her seat, pedal reach, and preferred driving position.

Oh, and by the way, Top Gear’s “Stig” has made the Mono his Car of the Year.
