The city of Liverpool is famous for many things; Liverpudlians, Scousers, two successful football teams (one arguably more so than the other!), ‘Merseybeat’ & The Beatles, Lime Street and The Mersey Estuary! 

Perhaps one surprising claim to fame, however, is that, since 2014, Liverpool is home to the production of the only road-legal single seater sports car – The BAC Mono!

BAC Mono Sportscar

The BAC Mono

The BAC Mono is the creation of the Briggs Automotive Company (BAC), a British company through-and-through founded by brothers Neill & Ian Briggs. Their vision was to create a pure driving experience aimed at motoring and sports car enthusiasts around the world – The result of their vision was the BAC Mono.

The Mono is undoubtedly a driver-centric vehicle, which literally puts the motorist right at the centre of the action! The lightweight carbon fibre body has been aggressively moulded to ensure F1-like aerodynamics and it features a single seat located centrally across the wheel axis.

Powered by a modest 2.3 litre four-cylinder engine you may be forgiven for doubting the abilities of the BAC Mono – after all, that is a fairly small engine compared to the 4 – 6 litre lumps powering todays modern Aston Martins, Ferraris & Porsches! Weighing only 540kg is what really makes this car special, though. 

Given the lightweight materials used throughout, the relative size of the engine and the fine tuning of the gearbox and transmission, the BAC Mono is quick. Very, very quick!

In fact, with all the BAC Mono technical specifications considered, the car will move at a top speed of 170mph and can reach 60mph in just 2.8 seconds. The power to weight ratio of the BAC Mono is an astonishing 520bhp per tonne!

 

Interesting Facts about the BAC Mono

The cars are hand built to order right here on Merseyside. The BAC Mono is currently constructed at Speke Hall industrial estate.

The car is available from £99,000, although there are an abundance of options available at extra cost. Our favourite ‘optional’ extra has to be the Fully Bespoke Mono Race Suit (including gloves / shoes) which is 100% FIA approved – that’s the same people who run Formula 1 motor racing – which weighs in at an additional £2,150! A carbon racing helmet with Bluetooth functionality is also available and for an additional £2,990 you can complete the authentic racing driver look!

The BAC Mono is the world’s only 1-seater road-legal sports car in production today!

The BAC Mono holds the second fastest lap time ever around the Top Gear studio race track!

The BAC Mono isn’t available to lease from Plan Liverpool; we just think it is unbelievably cool that a car this good comes from our fantastic city!
