£158,950 BAC Mono One launched as run-out special 

The limited-run BAC Mono One model marks the end of the line for the single-seat British supercar 

A decade since it came to fruition, Liverpool-based Briggs Automotive Company has announced the end of the line for its Mono supercar. To celebrate its successful production run, BAC’s creating a trio of special edition models complete with unique design touches.

The Mono R launched at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed will continue to be built and an all new model is on the horizon so these three run-out specials will be the swansong of the standard Mono.

The cars are finished in the company colours: one in white, one red and the other without any paint at all, putting its black carbon fibre bodywork on display for all to see. An exposed carbon fibre lower section, unique ‘carbon hybrid wheels’ and logos paying homage to the Mono’s design origins can be found on all three editions.

Rather oddly, the logos reference Bjork’s ‘All Is Full Of Love’ music video, with the badge seen in the video to be found on the wing and headrest. Carrying this theme through to the driver, all three lucky buyers with receive one-off helmets with liveries inspired by the robots in the 1999 music video.  

BAC Co-Founder and Design Director, Ian Briggs, said: ‘When we first designed Mono and drew inspiration from Bjork’s video, we did so with a dream of sharing the experience with our close friends and having a lot of fun in the process – never could we have ever visualised our growth around the world and just how many remarkable garages Mono now finds itself part of.’

Although each Mono One comes with a set specification, made-to-measure seats and steering wheels are still on offer, alongside a handful of other personalisation options. Its £158,950 price tag might seem steep, but with just three on offer, we can’t imagine they’ll hang around.

305bhp and 227lb ft of torque provide a 2.7sec 0-62mph time and a 170mph top speed - thanks to a 580kg (dry) weight, power-to-weight comes in at a staggering 525bhp per tonne. As impressive as they are, those numbers are likely to be overshadowed later this year…

Not only does the model mark the end of the line for BAC’s first car, it comes just ahead of an all-new model, set to be revealed at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show in March. Production is due to begin in mid-2021, but further details are still under wraps.
