Meet the BAC Mono, a $130,000 Single-Seater for the Hardcore Enthusiast

The Mono is motivated by a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 2.3-liter Cosworth engine that develops 280 bhp. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential Hewland transmission with limited-slip differential, designed to Formula 3 specifications.

While 280 bhp might not sound much to power-infested minds, the Mono’s power to weight ratio stands at 520 bhp / tonne, a value superior to that of the Bugatti Veyron, as the car weighs a mere 540 kg (1,190 lbs) thanks to the carbon-fiber body and the minimalistic engineering approach.
