First BAC Mono R gets a video game style liveryNovember 8, 2020
BAC shipped the first Mono R to its owner in Europe, and it boasts a unique livery inspired by the PlayStation WipEout racing series.
The look, created in collaboration with video game creator and designer Nick Barcombie, and graphic designer Eddie Wainwright, has been refined over more than 10 days. The unique livery combines the classic colors of white, yellow and blue from one of the most famous WipEout teams called FEISAR (Federal European Industrial Science and Research), complemented by carbon fiber.
“While playing WipEout on the PlayStation, I often dreamed of one day flying around different racetracks in my own FEISAR ship. It’s not exactly anti-gravity racing … but the frankly outrageous Mono R gives me exactly the same feeling. It’s a feat of engineering, technology and design – and given the way it looks, it definitely won’t be out of place in any WipEout game, ”said the owner of the car.
Despite the high starting price of £ 190,950, all 30 limited-edition Mono Rs were sold before the 2019 launch. The single-seat supercar is slightly smaller than the regular Mono and features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine co-developed with Mountune.
The naturally aspirated unit produces 340 horsepower. With 35 more horsepower and 25 kg less weight under the hood than the “regular” Mono, the BAC Mono R can accelerate to 96 km / h in just 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 274 km / h.
