The BAC Mono has a naturally aspirated four cylinders in line longitudinal middle engine.
It Provides a maximum torque of 281 Nm available from 6000 rpm and a maximum power output of 284 PS.
At 7700 rpm transmitted to the 17 inch rear wheels by an automatic 6 speed gearbox BAC,
maker of the Mono,
has unveiled an all-new iteration of the road-going single-seater at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
It’s called the Mono R, and it is a lighter, more powerful second-generation version of the popular Liverpool-built car.The car’s new 2.5-liter engine, which has been co-developed with Mountune, delivers 340 horsepower.
The extra horsepower is more accessible thanks to a more responsive drive-by-wire throttle.
Mono R is 25 kilograms lighter.
Weighing in at a mere 555 kg (1,223 lbs), and you get a remarkable power-to-weight figure of 612 hp-per-ton.
The engine delivers 136 hp per liter, which is a new world record for a road-legal, naturally-aspirated car.
After a successful APC-funded Research & Development project into the production-readiness of graphene, BAC has teamed up with Haydale and Pentaxia through the Niche Vehicle Network (NVN) to implement graphene-enhanced carbon fiber in every body panel for the first time in a production road car.
BAC is working with global science corporation DSM to use additive manufacturing for the first time.
By 3D printing parts using high-performance polymers to reduce the design-to-manufacture time frames of complex geometrical components.
To improve the driving experience, BAC has reworked the suspension geometry to reduce pitch under braking, with increased anti-dive at the front and anti-squat at the rear maximizing traction.
For the first Mono car they uses the two way adjustable Ohlins dampers.
All of the enhancements combine to reduce braking distances and weight transfer, helping to deliver sharper turn-in, provide better rotation at the apex and better traction out of corners.
“Today marks a monumental step in the history of Briggs Automotive Company.
Not only have we become a multi-product brand for the first time.
Design and innovation in the Mono R. He said Ian Briggs, Design Director at BAC.
