BAC Mono Comes to America
bac | February 21, 2014
The single-seat BAC Mono has been speeding around circuits in its native U.K. for the last couple of years. Now, the lightweight, carbon fiber track day car is being assembled in the U.S. for customers on this side of the Atlantic.
California’s Sector111 is the U.S. distributor for the Mono, and builds each car from parts shipped over from BAC’s U.K. assembly plant. Now, Sector111 is showing off of the first U.S. built Mono zipping around the twisty roads of Temecula, California, courtesy of its 280 horsepower Cosworth engine that’s more than capable of driving the motorcycle-like 1,190 pound car from 0-to-60 in a brain-melting 2.8 seconds. The video, shot by Roads & Rides, features Sector 111 CEO Shinoo Mapleton, who has the enviable job of playing with these impressive little cars as his day job.
Drivers interested in acquiring a BAC Mono here in the U.S. can expect to spend around $200,000(USD).
