The Mono By Briggs Au­to­mo­tive Com­pany (BAC)

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

De­signed to pro­vide the most au­then­tic driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the world, BAC’s cre­ation has been ex­ported to over 30 ter­ri­to­ries around the globe. Be­spoke su­per­car man­u­fac­turer BAC is based in Liver­pool and was co-founded by broth­ers Ian and Neill Briggs. It pro­duces the fast and highly ac­claimed Mono su­per­car, a sin­gle-seater for­mula-style car that pro­vides a vis­ceral and ex­hil­a­rat­ing driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Since its launch in 2011 it has been go­ing from strength to strength and is now sold in sev­eral mar­kets around the world. It launched with great suc­cess and fan­fare in Hong Kong at the end of 2015, with eight cars sold in a sin­gle night. BAC deal­ers can also be found in North Amer­ica, Ja­pan and Lon­don. The 2016 model year ver­sion of the Mono comes with a four-cylin­der 305bhp 2.5-litre Moun­tune en­gine, which takes the 580kg car from 0-60mph in just 2.8sec. BAC re­cently launched a car­bon hy­brid wheel and an­nounced the use of the su­per ma­te­rial graphene, which is up to 20 per cent lighter than car­bon fi­bre and as much as 200 times stronger than steel. De­spite its global ap­peal, BAC Mono re­mains proudly Bri­tish, with parts sourced from its home coun­try wher­ever pos­si­ble.
