Always wanted to drive an F1 car on the street? If so, then look no further than the BAC Mono. This F1-inspired machine is powered by a 2.5L Mountune engine generating 305 hp and 227 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission. One caveat: it has no windshield, so a helmet is necessary for maximum safety.
Despite weighing just 1,190-pounds, the BAC Mono is still able to keep up with some supercars, as it can hit 62 mph in a mere 3.85-seconds, while topping out at over 160 mph. Just for the record, a BAC Mono managed to achieve a 1:14.3 lap time at the Top Gear test track, making it the second fastest ever there in the hands of The Stig.

When it came to designing the new-generation BAC Mono, we didn’t just want to set a precedent for the evolution of Mono – we wanted to set a totally new bar for supercar design. The flowing, functional shape that’s full of undeniable Mono DNA is lighter-looking, more simplistic and cleaner than ever before, with a reduced frontal area and thinner surfaces throughout. Making the second Mono was always going to be a challenge – much like the ever-anticipated second album of an artist – but we’re confident the stunning look, innovation and driving experience of the new BAC Mono will more than meet the demands and expectations,” said Ian Briggs, Design Director at BAC.
