BAC Is Bringing An Updated Mono To The Goodwood Festival Of Speed

Update: Images of the revised BAC Mono have surfaced and can be seen below.

BAC has released a teaser video of the new Mono, which it will unveil at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

“In 2011, we unleashed BAC Mono on the world. And now in 2019, we’re ready to take it to the next level…” reads the video description. It shows the car under a sheet, giving us the opportunity to see its side profile. For the most part, its shape appears similar to the current model – with one major exception.

Right behind the cockpit there’s a pod that is reportedly a larger exterior air intake similar to what you’ll find on Formula 3 race cars. This indicates that BAC has worked to increase the amount of air being funneled into the engine, and that can only mean one thing: more power.

The current BAC Mono is powered by a 2.5-liter four pumping out 301 hp at 8,000 rpm that’s mated to a six-speed sequential transmission from Hewland. It remains to be seen if the updated version will feature this same engine but with some added grunt or instead, feature an all-new powertrain to create the fastest Mono ever.

Earlier this year, BAC delivered its 100th Mono to the Strojer Samlingen museum in Denmark, a facility which houses other prized automobiles like Bugattis, Koenigseggs, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, and others. The 100th Mono is finished in green carbon fiber with gold-painted accents.
