Cars and Coffee: BAC Mono

Once again Cars and Coffee Irvine does not disappoint. A few weeks back nearing the end of the show I went on a final walk through the lot before departing and to my surprise I found a BAC Mono. BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) created the Mono from the perspective of a “pure driving experience.” I made sure to shoot what the rarely-seen Mono had to offer: simplistic, functional and quite beautiful design, the Mono seats–as you guessed it–just one, defining itself with just a numerical prefix representing anything single. Powered by a 2.3 liter Cosworth mated to a Hewland sequential six-speed gearbox, it develops 285 horsepower. Utilizing the Hewland gearbox defines what the intent is for the Mono: A street legal racing car much like a Formula 3 car. Would I want one? Yes. Would it be practical? No. But who cares, think of it as a budget Lamborghini Egoista but that much prettier, much more functional and wont break your budget if you can afford either of them. Now if I could just get one and drive the Malibu Canyons. [ Images: Copyright 2014 Hooniverse/Jason Connor]
