The BAC Mono is the latest in the line-up of track toys. The CGI images show – and we quote the manufacturer – a road-legal, single-seat racecar for the street.
The carbon fiber composite surrounding a FIA-compliant steel safety cell weighs a mere 1,200 pounds. The sports car is powered by a 2.3 liter, Cosworth-massaged four-cylinder producing 280hp. Considering such stellar power-to-weight, the company’s claimed 2.8 seconds to 100km/h, with a 273km/h top speed. The engine is linked to a Hewland six-speed of F3 racing spec.
A fully adjustable pushrod suspension is courtesy of SACHS Racing, brakes are AP 295mm ventilated discs and according to the company, Kumho developed a bespoke compound just for the Mono’s tires.
UK buyers can order a BAC Mono through high-end dealer SuperVettura, at a price of £ 67,000. BAC’s building only 35 Mono units for the entire world, with ten of them already sold.
