BAC Delivers 100th Mono

BAC has delivered the 100th example of its unique Mono supercar, with a customer in Denmark the latest owner.

Jorgen Strojer-Hansen took delivery of the car, which sports a special “Chassis 100” gold plaque as well as gold detailing over the British Racing Green visible carbon bodywork.

The 100th Mono built comes not only in BAC’s 10th anniversary year but ten years to the day from the company’s creation by Ian and Neill Briggs.

BAC built the first Mono in 2011 and the car has remained largely unchanged since then. The road-legal, lightweight single-seater has a tubular steel safety cage and carbon fibre body construction.

That adds up to a kerb weight of just 580kg, even including the 2.5-litre Ford-derived Mountune engine which produces 305hp. With over 525hp/tonne, the Mono is unsurprisingly one of the quickest cars in the world.

BAC builds each of the cars by hand in its facility in Speke, Liverpool, with each vehicle customised to its owner’s preferences. Indeed BAC claims that every single Mono it has made is a one-of-a-kind, with no two Monos carrying the same specifications.

Mono #100 will be included in the collection at the Strojer Samlingen Museum, near Odense in Denmark, which houses more than 100 cars from classic Aston Martin and Bugatti models to the latest Danish supercar brand Zenvo.

Neil Briggs, co-founder of BAC, commented:

“Delivering Mono #100 is a huge milestone in our history, but stay tuned – there is a lot more excitement to come from BAC in the near future.”
