This is BAC’s limited-edition Mono R supercar and the lightning-quick 343bhp, 555kg supercar lapped the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit 2.4-mile track in an astonishing 1:15.03 on fully road-legal Pirelli P Zero tyres – that’s an average of 115mph during the run.
Why? Well, the Mono R was on location at Goodwood as part of an official track day and slick customer handover, where the owner received the keys to their new supercar and even allowed British racing driver Oliver Webb to take pole position behind the steering wheel.
Who is BAC’s?
BAC’s or the Briggs Automotive Company is the dream of founding brothers, Neill and Ian Briggs who just happen to be self-confessed petrolheads. The company was launched back in 2011 when the duo’s vision of a road vehicle that could offer a pure driving and authentic driving experience was nothing more than a dream. Fast forward ten years and the automotive vision has become a reality.
After years of meticulous planning, designing, engineering, and manufacturing, Mono was unleashed on the world at the Retro Classics Show, Stuttgart, as a totally unique proposition that caused shockwaves across the industry. Never had there been such a stunning supercar that combined racing tech and the latest automotive innovations with genuine track pedigree and on-road ability.
The Mono R remains truly British and sports the single-seat DNA that includes a brand new approach to body engineering has seen all surfaces designed from scratch and 44 bespoke carbon parts restyled to give the car a more aggressive, organic, and futuristic stance.
From the imposing shark-nose front to its retro minimalistic rear, the Mono R is, without doubt, one of the most exclusive supercars ever made, with a total of just 30 models being produced and sold to existing Mono customers around the globe…
Exclusivity comes at a price – the Mono R will cost its Jet Setting buyers at least £190,950…
