Hold onto your helmets because the chaps at Briggs Automotive Company, or BAC for short, have just unleashed their latest creation, the BAC Mono R! Now, you might be thinking, “What’s so special about another supercar?” Well, my dear petrolheads, this isn’t just any supercar; it’s a masterpiece in colored carbon fiber engineering.
Imagine a car so lightweight that it makes featherweights look like heavyweights. The standard Mono was already a track-hungry beast, weighing in at a svelte 570 kilograms. But the Mono R, well, it’s gone on a diet and now tips the scales at a mere 555 kilograms. And don’t you dare think they sacrificed power for weight!
Under that sleek body, the Mono R packs a punch with 343 bhp and a power-to-weight ratio that’s off the charts at 618 bhp per tonne. It’s a single-seater racer built for the most demanding of roads and tracks. But what sets this carbon fiber wonder apart is that it’s decided to go au naturel, skipping the paint job altogether!
You see, the geniuses at Hypetex, the color experts, have waved their magic wands and developed a way to infuse the carbon fiber itself with color. No more need for heavy paint coatings! Paint typically adds a hefty 138 grams per square meter, but Hypetex’s method? A mere 17 grams for the same area. And what does this mean? Well, it means this colored carbon fiber rocket can go from zero to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. Not too shabby, I’d say!
Now, feast your eyes on this beauty! The Mono R boasts a glossy white exterior, accentuated by bold black details and flashes of vibrant yellow. It’s like an artist’s palette on wheels. The body is a work of art in itself, thanks to the wizards at Formaplex and Hypetex’s titanium carbon fiber twill. And to add that extra bit of pizzazz, they’ve finished it off with a crystallized lacquer, making it shine like a diamond in the sun.
Just look at that shark-nose front, a nod to Formula racing, and the clever ram-air inlet system. LED headlights, like laser beams, are centrally mounted on the nose, giving this colored carbon fiber supercar an almost futuristic look.
But it’s not just about looks; it’s about performance too. The Mono R has undergone some serious aerodynamic tweaks, with wider front arches, beefier sidepods, and a monstrous rear spoiler that could double as a picnic table. Oh, and let’s not forget the LED twin-strut wing mirrors, the rear crash box, and a sleeker tail, all equipped with new LED combo fog and reverse lights to complete the ensemble.
Now, what makes this Mono R truly unique is that it’s part of BAC’s Bespoke program. That means no two Monos are alike! The lucky owner of this particular masterpiece is a collector from the land of burgers and baseball. They worked closely with BAC’s design team to make sure this Mono R was tailor-made to their exact specifications.
So there you have it, the BAC Mono R, a lightweight, colorful, carbon-fiber wonder that’s turning heads and burning rubber wherever it goes. It’s a supercar for those who demand nothing but the best, and I, for one, wouldn’t mind taking it for a spin myself. Until next time, keep your engines revving and your eyes on the road!
