Briggs Automotive Company Ltd (BAC) showcased the 2016 Mono to classic car collectors and car enthusiasts at the exclusive The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering and the Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance held earlier this month in California, USA.
BAC recently introduced the 2016 Mono at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month. The company claims that the 2016 Mono unofficially broke the course record on the famous hill climb. The Mono completed a series of runs of the course in less than 50 seconds, with a fastest time of 47.9 seconds, proving it is able to compete with dedicated track-focused cars.
The British carmaker making an appearance on the West Coast of America is a result of the growth the company has experienced over the last couple of years. The company intends to rise from being a British track car manufacturer to be a player in the global luxury segment.
BAC informs that it has set up a new factory in Liverpool, UK, where it builds one car per month. It is witnessing a strong demand from customers based in the US, Europe, South America and Asia.
The 2016 BAC Mono features an all new 2.5 litre Mountune four-cylinder engine that produces 305 bhp, which is 25 bhp more than the previous 2.3 litre Cosworth engine. The updated car weighs just 580 kg with a power to weight ratio of 526 bhp per tonne. The new Mono also incorporates a drive-by-wire system and a bespoke driver fitment, which includes features like a tailor-made seat and steering wheel for the owner.
Andrew Whitney, Director of Strategy and Corporate Development said, the Mono is much more than a track car, it’s a carefully engineered luxury product that stands in a league all of its own. Mr. Whitney also welcomed Mr. Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, who visited the showcase at The Quail.
