BAC Mono

The 2017 BAC Mono has just been upgraded with graphene body panels, an advanced material similar to carbon fiber but consists of sheets just one atom thick. It’s 20% lighter than carbon fiber, but 200-times stronger than steel, thanks to the arrangement of carbon atoms which form rigid, honeycomb-like structures within the material. The street-legal F1 supercar is powered by a 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing that delivers 305 bhp and 308 nM of torque, good for a blistering 0-60mph time of 2.8-seconds.

“The updated model also features five-stage traction control; intelligent launch control; and switchable auto upshift, whereby the car surges up the ratios automatically – this can be turned off via the multifunction steering wheel. An illuminated switchgear now sits on the wheel itself, which has a faster-ratio rack and turns 1.7 times lock to lock. Plus an electronic parking brake has been added to reduce weight and, as with the new wider chassis – now standard – further enhances cockpit space,” according to Design Boom.
