Think of the 2021 BAC Mono as a street-legal F1 car powered by a new turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder engine generating 332 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, mated to a revamped gearbox, enabling it to hit 60 mph in just 2.7-seconds, while topping out at 170 mph. They’ve also lowered its height by 0.79 inches while lengthening it 0.98 inches to give it a more race car-like appearance. Read more for an up-close video, additional pictures and information.
Other features include revised LED lights, twin-strut wing mirrors, a narrower tail, new rear crash box, a carbon steering wheel and optional carbon side panels. Just one caveat: it’ll set you back at least $212,673 USD.

When it came to designing the new-generation BAC Mono, we didn’t just want to set a precedent for the evolution of Mono – we wanted to set a totally new bar for supercar design. The flowing, functional shape that’s full of undeniable Mono DNA is lighter-looking, more simplistic and cleaner than ever before, with a reduced frontal area and thinner surfaces throughout. Making the second Mono was always going to be a challenge – much like the ever-anticipated second album of an artist – but we’re confident the stunning look, innovation and driving experience of the new BAC Mono will more than meet the demands and expectations,” said Ian Briggs, Design Director at BAC.
