Chris Harris Drives the BAC Mono

Who needs more than one seat in a track car, anyway? Chris Harris puts it to the test in the wet.
Despite posting figures of 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds, the BAC Mono doesn't pretend to be a supercar. The road-legal trackday toy was built to offer the sensations of driving a racecar while looking the part cruising down the high street courtesy of stunning carbon-fiber bodywork and its extreme lines. The Mono pairs a featherweight 540kg curb weight, built around a tubular spaceframe chassis, with a Formula 3-derived, Cosworth tuned Ford Duratec 2.3-liter engine with 280 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.
That may not sound like much, but it's enough to give the Mono a better power-to-weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron. Chris Harris takes the single-seater to Rockingham to find out how it drives in the wet.
