BAC Mono at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015

At the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015, the brand new 2016 BAC Mono was introduced with a new powertrain and even more incredible performance. The niche automaker debuted the car in style by sending it up the hill climb in a mere 47.9 seconds therefore setting an unofficial production car record up Lord March’s famous driveway.

For the 2016 model year, BAC has installed an entirely new engine in place of the screaming 280 hp 2.3-litre Cosworth engine featured previously. In its place is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder from Mountune pumping out 305 hp. When combined with a total weight of just 580 kg, the 2016 BAC Mono has an insane power-to-weight ratio of 526 hp per tonne. Additionally, the new car features a drive-by-wire throttle system.

During testing, the new BAC Mono also lapped the Hungaroring in 1:14.3 putting it 9.5 seconds ahead of the Porsche 911 GT3 and 4.5 seconds faster than the McLaren P1.
