If you ask a few people close to the fire why England is the center of the sports car universe, they say it’s because all the engineers are there. But the BAC Mono is more than the ultimate in sports car engineering. It’s a surprisingly successful business.
I kid you not, this is an official product built to order by the Briggs Automotive Company. A salt-proof Mono for half a million pounds, designed exclusively for use on your yacht. Because you might as well!
Take your bets now! I only drove her from the airport to the airport hotel’s parking lot here in Birmingham so far, but the next time I jump in it, I’ll have to take her to Edinburgh. Everything is on the wrong side, I can’t see out of it, 380 horsepower. Yep.

The McLaren P1 is fast. Shockingly fast. Unbelievably fast. But can a tiny little lightweight BAC Mono single seater outrun it at Silverstone?
Our friends at Evo went to a track for two days with a McLaren 12C GT Can-Am, a Caterhan Seven 620R, a Radical RXC, a BAC Mono, a Litchfield Subaru BRZ Spec S, a Mini JCW GP, a supercharged Ariel Atom 3.5 and a Porsche Cayman S. That's it. Lucky bastards.
Sabine Schmitz is the Queen of the Nürburgring, but Ron Simons is also an ace driver with incredible skill. Give the pair two BAC Mono racecars at Spa, and some high speed fun is guaranteed.
Oh hey, it's #StigCam for the BAC Mono's Top Gear lap. Sweet.
Summer is the perfect season for running to the track for a quick jaunt, and if you've got the money and time there's no better way to kill a couple of hours. But if you're going to do it, which vehicle do you do it in? XCAR has you covered, with a comparison of three stripped-out supercars.
With the debut of the Lamborghini Egoista, I started to wonder if it was the most outrageous single seater road car ever made. Surely some company, some time, has built something crazier.
The BHP Project part two consists of taking 4 awesome track focused cars into Central London to see what they're like in an environment which is a little out of their comfort zone.
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.
It's got a Cosworth-tuned 280hp engine, weighs 1,190 pounds and it's real, not CGI. It's the Mono by the UK's BAC, which released new shots of its Ariel Atom rival. Great, one more car for the bucket list.
Single-seat track-day toys are apparently the world's new jetskis, albeit at ten times the price. The latest entrant could be the BAC Mono. That is, if it ever makes it past the CGI stage. Of course we hope it does.
