Automotive Company (BAC) has officially launched the new BAC Mono – a
higher-performance, lighter and more advanced new generation of the
single-seater supercar that’s fully road legal across continental Europe and
around the world.
of the key statistics of the new BAC Mono are that it has a top speed of 170
mph or 274 kmph approx., does 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds, has an engine power of
332bhp and a peak torque of 400Nm+, weighs 570kg (kerb weight) and is priced at
UK Pounds 165,950 onward (Rs 1.55 crore approx.)
new BAC Mono sports the stunning new generation of the single-seater’s design
DNA, first seen on the ground-breaking BAC Mono R at the Goodwood Festival of
Speed 2019. More aerodynamically efficient front arches and wider sidepods for
enhanced cooling are carried over from the R’s design, as well as a larger
spoiler extending over the rear arches. Lower down on the body, all surfaces
are thinner to effectively sculpt and divert airflow.
LED lights, twin-strut wing mirrors, rear crash box and a narrower tail
incorporating new LED combination fog and reverse lights complete the new look,
while inside remains perfect for customer personalisation with a new, even lighter
carbon steering wheel and optional carbon side panels.
newcomer boasts a 2.3-litre four-cylinder in-line turbo engine, with bespoke
development by long-standing engine partner Mountune – including a co-developed
dry sump system that places the main mass of the engine lower and subsequently
improves centre of gravity. Uprated chassis, transmission and driveline
components also feature.
collaboration with software partner Autodesk, BAC has produced revolutionary
generative-design wheels for the new Mono that look stunning and reduce weight
in an exceptional fashion.
has lowered the car’s centre of gravity and improved weight distribution to
near-perfect proportions, thanks in part to increasing the volume and lowering
the fuel tank. The battery has also been repositioned to the centre of the car
underneath the driver for optimum balance.
geometry has been optimised to reduce pitch under braking, with increased
anti-dive at the front and anti-squat at the rear maximising traction, while
two-way adjustable dampers from Swedish experts Öhlins also feature.
vehicle dynamic improvements combine to reduce braking distances and weight
transfer, helping to deliver sharper turn-in, provide better rotation at the
apex and better traction out of corners – aided by specially homologated
Pirelli Trofeo R tyres being fitted as standard on all new Mono models.
