During this year’s edition of the Goodwood Festival of Speed taking place this weekend in England, among classic and modern machines there’s also room for artistic measure.
For the first time ever the Briggs Automotive Company, or BAC, is going down the same route as BMW, introducing its first-ever Mono Art Car. The boutique automaker partnered with Autodesk to design an intricate, artistic view of the airflow of the car, inspired by the Autodesk CFD simulation tool used in development of the Mono sports car and others. The main hue is jet black, with the artistic touches for the airflow making use of blue and green accents on the front, turning into red and yellow accents at the back.
There’s also an Autodesk logo along the left side of the vehicle as well as on the spoiler, and more importantly some exposed carbon fiber fenders, going nicely with the body-matching black wheels. The Mono Art Car will be showcased at the Autodesk Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Birmingham and then move to Goodwood. “Good design is at the heart of Mono and is paramount in everything we do at BAC,” said Co-Founder and Design Director Ian Briggs. “Having worked with Autodesk for many years, it is a pleasure to create something as beautiful as this Art Car.” The 2016 Mono has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 305 horsepower (227 kilowatts), good for a sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 2.8 seconds due to the lightweight construction.
