The 2016 BAC Mono has been quietly introduced by the company and it is getting ready to become available for its future customers.
BAC has officially pulled the wraps off the Mono in the 2016 model year. The vehicle in question hasn’t received any visual changes compared to the previous version but the same cannot be said when talking about its engine or other parts.
“BAC introduced the 2016 Model Year Mono to the world at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with an unofficial road car record-breaking run on the famous hill climb. With a series of runs comfortably sub 50-seconds, and a fastest time of 47.9, the Mono is able to compete with many dedicated racing cars”, said BAC in its official press release.
Under the hood of the 2016 BAC Mono, the new 2.5 liter four-cylinder Mountune engine can be found. This is capable of producing a total output of 305 HP (227 kW), meaning that it is 25 HP (18 kW) more powerful than the previous unit, the 2.3 liter Cosworth. The previous version of the model was capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and it could go up to 273 km/h (170 mph). Sadly we have no clue on the performance figures of the “new” vehicle but we do know that it has also received the custom steering wheel, the drive-by-wire throttle and several other tweaks.
