Turns Out The BAC Mono Is Fun To Drive On The Ice And Snow Too

There are plenty of cars we’d choose for driving in the ice and snow. Pretty much anything with a closed roof, all-wheel drive and a good measure of power – from a Subaru WRX to a Bentley Bentayga. Something like a Porsche 911 Turbo or Nissan GT-R would surely be lots of fun in those conditions, too. But a BAC Mono?

The British supercar has a single-seat open cockpit and a four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels. Arguably the closest thing to a formula racing car for the street, it’s designed principally for use on the track. Maybe on secluded country roads. But not ice… right?

Well that’s what we might have thought before, but its manufacturers at the Briggs Automotive Company feel otherwise. And they’ve driven the point home, so to speak, with an ice-driving experience in Sweden.

The four-day experience was actually the second like this that BAC has run for its owners. It took place recently in Åre in the west of the Scandinavian country, and despite the car itself providing little in the way of shelter from the elements, it looks like it was a heck of a lot of fun.

“Spirits were high for the duration and it was amazing to see our friends getting to grips with Mono on the ice in spectacular fashion,” said co-founder Ian Briggs. “Mono and our drivers were tested thoroughly, of course, but this is the ultimate piece of sporting equipment that simply thrives even in the most extreme conditions.”

Of course the studded tires and expert tutelage didn’t hurt. But the event just goes to show that cars designed for one purpose can still be driven – and enjoyed – in a wide array of environments.
