Next generation BAC Mono launched
3rd March 2020
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has officially launched the new BAC Mono – a higher-performance, lighter and more advanced new generation of the single-seater supercar that’s fully road legal across continental Europe and around the world.
Sporting the stunning new generation of Mono design DNA first seen on the BAC Mono R, the newcomer epitomises how form enhances function with reductions in visual mass across the body, less frontal area and a lower height creating a sleeker, more organic overall appearance.
For the first time, Mono meets the latest stringent EU6D emissions and drive-by noise regulations to make it ready for the streets of Europe. Its 2.3-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine is 27bhp more powerful than its predecessor – at 332bhp – and offers in excess of an incredible 400Nm of torque.
The One of a Kind supercar weighs just 570kg despite numerous additions under the skin in line with European regulations, thanks to the inclusion of a number of technological feats. The likes of BAC’s graphene R&D projects from the Mono R, additive manufacturing and a ground-breaking generative-design wheel project with software partner Autodesk have helped to reduce the weight over the first-generation model.
Staggering power of 332bhp and a 570kg kerb weight add up to a truly remarkable power-to-weight ratio of 582bhp-per-tonne – 57bhp-per-tonne higher than the original Mono’s figure. Vehicle dynamic enhancements mean the iconic single-seater continues to offer a totally unparalleled, scintillating driving experience.
