The BAC Mono is a carbon-bodied piece of motoring sculpture, created with the innards of a Formula 3 car: 1190.5-lb, 280hp. The handling is astonishing, even in the wet, as Chris Harris found out recently at Rockingham UK.

The point of the BAC MONO is to bring formula racing to the masses. And by masses, I mean LIBOR-free Fleet Street bankers, considering the thing costs around £74,950. Either way, it looks to be a fine training tool, as long as those sods can keep all four wheels off the sod.
