BAC Mono track car revealed

A road legal trackday special from Cheshire: meet the Bugatti Veyron beating BAC Mono

Meet the Briggs Automotive Company Mono. It’s a new road-legal track toy from Cheshire that takes plenty of stylistic inspiration from its contemporaries, most notably the KTM X-Bow and Caparo T1. Unsurprisingly, there’s a focus on lightweight carbonfibre construction, while the car also comes with adjustable pushrod suspension and AP Racing brakes.

The rear wheels are driven by a 280bhp, 206lb ft 2.3-litre Cosworth four-cylinder engine driving through a six-speed sequential gearbox. Weighing just 540kg, the Mono can hit 60mph in a claimed 2.8sec and go on to a 170mph top speed, while at 527bhp/ton, its power-to-weight ratio trumps the Bugatti Veyron’s.
