Report – BAC looking to rival McLaren’s P1 image

The Briggs Automotive Company – or BAC – is well known for delivering one of the best track-focused street legal cars in the world – the open-cockpit Mono.

It has less than supercar-worthy power with a 2.5-liter engine providing 305 horsepower (227 kilowatts) but it can sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) in as little as three seconds. This is of course thanks to the lightweight and aerodynamic focused construction. And apparently that’s not enough for the small company – during a recent interview at the Wilton Classic & Supercar show in the U.K., BAC revealed they are mulling a hybrid hypercar to rival the “holy trinity” made out of the LaFerrari, Porsche 918, and McLaren P1.

It’s going to be a completely different car from the Mono, featuring two seats and a roof, as well as prohibitive price tag of around one million pounds when offered to customers. According to fonder Neill Briggs, the car would use technology derived from Formula One (hello Aston Martin AM-RB 001 and Mercedes-AMG Project One) as well as Formula E. “A few years ago, people thought a hypercar was a massive beast of a thing that wasn’t even much fun to drive,” said Neill. “We can all see where it’s going now with the racing tech going into cars like the new Mercedes, and it’s hugely exciting.”
