Deadmau5 Takes a Look at a Mono Car: Bored of The McLaren?

Do these celebrities really get bored that easy or is it just us? It’s been less than three months since Canadian DJ Joel Thomas Zimmerman announced his fans about the brand new McLaren 650S he bought and the artist is already checking out other sportscars. Deadmau5 just posted an image of BAC's Mono car, so we’re wondering if he’s planning to buy one.

It’s human nature and it will probably never change. You have something, but you always desire for something else, always wanting more. Deadmau5 bought the 641 horsepower beast back in June and, like any person would be on this planet, the DJ looked pretty happy about it. After all, we’re looking at a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine wired with crazy ground-braking technology all wrapped in one of the coolest sportscars of the moment.

Well, it looks like happiness comes in the shape of small bottles with this fellow, considering he’s already checking other babes. The Canadian just posted an image of Mono sportscar on his Instagram account.

What is the Mono, you ask? Well, it’s a British sportscar manufactured by Speke, Liverpool-based Briggs Automative Company (BAC). The young company was founded in 2009 by brothers Neill and Ian Briggs to produce specialists sportscar targeted at enthusiasts.

The single-seater road-legal sports car was launched in 2011 and it uses carbon fibre composite construction over a steel chassis (with International Automobile Federation compliant rollover structure) inspired by the construction principles employed in the DTM (German Touring Car Masters).

Mono is powered by a 2.3-liter four-cylinder Ford Duratec engine provided by Cosworth, producing 288 horsepower and 206 lb-ft (279 Nm). The engine is mounted longitudinally to maintain the centralised balance of the vehicle. Long story short, the car is powerful and also very fast. The F3-specification six-speed sequential gearbox operates a semi-automatic transmission which was designed to complete gear shifts in 35 milliseconds.

These specifications result in a 0 to 62 mph (0-100km/h) time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h). For all these reasons, we’d advice to think twice before buying one of these babes, because you’d basically need racing skills to actually keep it on the road.
