BAC Mono single-seater became lighter and fasterJuly 4, 2019
The design of the car uses graphene, magnesium and titanium
The British company BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) presented the evolution of the Mono – Mono R single track “lighter”. The novelty has become easier, faster and technically more advanced than its predecessor – for example, all car body panels are made of carbon-graphene-based composite.
Externally, the BAC Mono R is almost the same as the Mono: the sports car has slightly changed in size and an air intake using the dynamic pressure of the incoming flow has appeared. However, all 44 outer panels, which are made of carbon-graphene-based composite, are newly designed. BAC Mono R weight is only 555 kilograms.
The sports car is still equipped with an atmospheric four-cylinder engine with capacity of 2.5 liters. Its recoil increased from 309 to 345 horsepower. To the 100 km/h Mono R accelerates in 2.5 seconds (2.8 in the usual Mono), and its maximum speed – 274 kilometers per hour. Modified suspension geometry and adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers, as well as tenacious Pirelli Trofeo R racing tires, specially homologated for normal roads, are designed to improve cornering.
BAC Mono R was 25 kilograms lighter than the usual Mono. This is achieved by the magnesium chassis, the use of polymer-printed parts and the installation of carbon-ceramic brakes and an exhaust system made of titanium.
Price Mono R – 190,950 pounds.
