the glorious Bac Mono.

There are a lot of these dedicated performance mini-track cars around; Ariel Atom, Caterham Seven, the recently featured fantastic Donkervoort, and plenty of others.

But I have yet to see one as beautiful, detailed, and as full lovely design as the Bac Mono. From the minimalist name to the beautiful sculpted bodywork—-i think this is the holy grail of these types of cars as far as i’m concerned.   Oh and the interior and pedals can be fitted to suit the size of the buyer.

The Bac Mono starts for around $80k GBP in the UK—however it’s been announced the car will be on sale in the US next year.  Prices for the US market have not been announced as of yet. It’s a fairly new company, started in 2009 out of the UK.  Obviously I haven’t driven one…..but take a look at the numbers:
