New chassis developed for BAC Mono


Niche sports vehicle manufacturer, BAC, has announced revisions to its single-seater roadcar, the Mono. The car’s tubular chassis has been redesigned, to move the sides of safety cell outwards, while new, thinner side panels have also been added.

BAC states that the changes have come about thanks to its close relationship and ongoing communication with its customers. The re-engineering of the chassis brings 25mm of extra space on either side, while the new panels bring another 3mm on both sides of the driver; widening the car by a total of 56mm.

The car retains its original dimensions, despite the additional cabin width, as well as its original kerb weight of 580kg.

“Every change we make to the Mono is aimed at improving it for our customers, and this upgrade is intended to make the most of the space for the driver,” explained BAC co-founder Ian Briggs. “Thanks to the close relationship we enjoy with our customers, we are in regular dialogue with them and this change has come as a result of this. The changes will widen the appeal of the Mono, particularly as we expand into new markets such as America and the Far East.”
