Watch Two BAC Monos Race at Nurburgring

The tarmac-devouering machine that is powered by Coswarth-built engines is calld the BAC Mono and is nothing more than a banter-weight race car with a place to mount your license plate at the front.
Two single seater BAC Monos have been filmed racing each other at the Gran Turismo EVO, a track day even held this weekend at the Nurburgring.

These go-car machines are more advanced than they might seem. Offering a carbon fiber skin that covers a space-frame steel cell.

The Cosworth engines we mentioned are 2.3-liter four-cylinder units with 280 bhp at 7,700 rpm and 280 Nm (207 lb.ft.) at 6,000 rpm.

The Mono reaches 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 2.8 seconds and offers a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h). If you’ve started thinking this is a rival for the Atom, don’t – the Mono cost a whopping £79,950 (including UK taxes).
