Single BAC Mono succeeded generationMarch 3, 2020
The British automobile company Briggs (BAC) has introduced a completely new generation of Mono, which remains true to the concept of the first generation, introduced in 2011, but now with a turbo engine.
Launched in 2011, Mono is a very minimalist single-seat car in which a gasoline engine behind the front seats drives the rear wheels. From the very beginning, the internal combustion engine was a 2.3-liter four-cylinder Ford engine driven by Cosworth, a Duratec unit that allowed the lightweight Mono to develop power up to 289 hp. In 2015, 2.3L was replaced with 2.5L with a capacity of 309 hp, but for this completely new generation of Mono, the BAC returns to a 2.3 liter power supply with one big difference.
The new 2.3 is actually a turbo engine. This blown propulsion system delivers 337 hp. and torque of more than 400 Nm. The hardcore machine weighs only 570 kg, which makes the new Mono 10 kg lighter than its predecessor. “Spartan” in 2.7 seconds accelerates to a speed of 97 km / h. The maximum speed is 274 km / h, and this is more than enough without a decent windshield.
AP Racing Remmery, the Mono R productive division, supplies carbon-ceramic panels at will. Mono comes standard with the Pirelli Trofeo R tire set, which encloses special alloy wheels.
Outside, this second generation is clearly recognizable as Mono. A kart-like car is 2 centimeters lower than before, and even 2.5 centimeters shorter than its predecessor. Most of the design elements BAC previously received from Mono R. “Free” rear wheel arches are interconnected using a spoiler.
The new Mono is equipped with LED headlights, side mirrors mounted on two “handles”, and a carbon-fiber steering wheel, which gives the car a serious racing look. Maybe not right away, but, given the look of the English car, Mono will be allowed on public roads in Europe.
