BAC MONO isn't Faster Than Pagani Huayra at Top Gear's Race Track
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) almost break the record for lapping BBC Top Gear's test track at Dunsfold, Surrey with their MONO.
BAC MONO managed to lap the circuit in just 1 minute and 14.3 seconds, which is faster than everything except the mighty Pagani Huayra, which did the lap in 1 minute and 13.8 seconds. The MONO is powered by a 2.3 liter naturally aspirated Cosworth engine with 285HP (209 kW) mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox from Hewland. The power is transmitted to the road through an LSD (limited-slip differential) on the rear wheels. 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, 0-160 km/h in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 273 km/h (170 mph). All this numbers are thanks to the staggering power to weight ratio – 520BHP per ton.
The tires of the performance machine are coming from KUMHO. The version is a street-legal V70A competition tyre especially developed for the BAC, which rides on 205/40 R17 at the front and 245/40 R17 on the rear.
The price is €91 998.
