Chris Harris and DRIVE were granted access to the BAC Mono; a 540kg, 280hp trackday toy made in the UK. Chris took the car to the Rockingham race track for some proper driving in the wet. Check his verdict in the video below!
The single seater is powered by a 2.3 liter Cosworth four-cylinder engine which provides 280 horsepower and a maximum torque of 280Nm. The car weighs only 540kg, which equals a whopping 520bhp per ton – a lot more than 440bhp per ton of the Bugatti Veyron. The acceleration from 0 to 100km/h is done in 2.8 seconds, the top speed is 274km/h. The BAC Mono is designed to optimise the driving position – in the middle, central to the wheels, and the balance of the car.
