BAC Mono Unleashed
The Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has just unveiled its new Mono sports car. Developed in order to be the ultimate track toy, the Mono is a road-legal car that comes with a lightweight carbon fiber body that covers an FIA compliant steel safety cell. The BAC Mono features an adjustable pushrod suspension, Sachs Racing dampers, AP racing brakes and sits on 17-inch alloy rims wrapped around in bespoke Kumho tires.
The car is powered by a 4-cylinder 2.3-liter engine that develops 280 hp (284 PS / 209 kW) and 206 lb.-ft (280 Nm) of torque. The power unit has been mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox, allowing the Mono to do the 0-60 mph sprint in only 2.8 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h). It has a curb weight of only 1,190 lb (540 kg).
The automaker said that they will roll out only 35 units and the starting price will be $106,825, before the taxes kick in.
