The BAC Mono is an insane $250,000 street-legal race car. Today I’m reviewing the BAC Mono to show you around this crazy race car for the road, and I’m going to show you all the quirks and features of the BAC Mono.

The Mono uses carbon fibre composite construction over a steel chassis (with FIA compliant rollover structure) inspired by the construction principles employed in DTM race cars. The nose of the vehicle provides a storage compartment and doubles as impact protection.
The Mono was originally powered by a heavily modified Ford Duratec 2,300 cc four-cylinder Cosworth gasoline engine producing 213 kW (286 hp) at 7,700 rpm.The Mono weights 540 kg (1,190 lb).
These specifications result in a 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 274 km/h (170 mph). In 2015, the engine was replaced by a 2.5-litre unit developing 227 kW (304 hp) at 8,000 rpm. The car has a F3-specification six-speed sequential transmission developed by Hewland.Weight distribution is focussed on maintaining a low centre of gravity. The engine is mounted longitudinally to maintain the centralized balance of the car./wikipedia
