British manufacturer Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) is introducing Mono, a lightweight, road legal sports vehicle that uses the latest racing technologies. As its name suggests, and as you can see in the adjacent images, the Mono uses a single, central-seat design, while paying attention to aerodynamic aspects of the car.

BAC’s Mono is constructed using high-strength carbon fibre composite around a steel safety cell. The cell is designed to offer maximum safety featuring a FIA compliant steel rollover structure, a side impact structure and a front carbon crashbox.

Performance wise, the Mono is equipped with a longitudinally mounted 2.3 litre, four cylinder power plant provided by Cosworth. The unit, developing 280 bhp at 7,700 rpm and 280 Nm (207 lb.ft.) at 6,000 rpm, is coupled with an F-3 spec 6-speed sequential gearbox from Hewland. According to BAC, the Mono is thus able to hit the 60 mph (97 km/h) mark within 2.8 seconds and further accelerate to a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h).

Suspension is a fully-adjustable pushrod suspension with damping elements made by SACHS Racing. Fitted with 295mm ventilated discs, AP Racing brakes provide stopping power. The Mono sits on 17-inch O.Z. Racing HRT alloy alloy wheels wrapped in Kumho tires.

Customers can choose from various exterior colors, from solid (Robot White, Raptor Grey, Seal Grey) to metallic (Titanium metallic, Gun Metal Grey metallic, Black metallic) or special (White pearl metallic, Green pearl metallic, Gitane Blue pearl metallic, Red pearl metallic, Yellow pearl metallic, Orange pearl metallic).

Now that you know about everything there is to know about the BAC Mono, let us tell you that this track car is priced at £66,625 (about $106,900 at the current exchange rate), plus local taxes.
