BAC Mono One revealed news

Final run of first-gen single-seater decorated with Bjork-inspired details

The Briggs Automotive Company, or more popularly known as BAC, will be wrapping up production of the first-generation single-seater Mono this year and is commemorating it with a special celebratory edition known as the Mono One.

Just three examples of the Mono One will be built, each will be based on the standard 227kW Mono and painted in one of the company’s three corporate colours, white, black, and red.

Priced at £158,950 (AUD$306k), all three Mono Ones will feature special carbon-hybrid wheels and a commemorative plaque to set each of these minimalist speedsters apart from its standard-issue brethren.

As homage to the robot in Bjork’s 1999 “All is Full of Love” music video, which is said to have inspired the Mono’s futuristic design, each Mono One will be adorned with a “Bjork-robot-inspired logo” on its wing and headrest, along with a unique helmet resplendent in “Bjork-robot-inspired livery”.

“When we first designed the Mono and drew inspiration from Bjork’s video, we did so with a dream of sharing the experience with our close friends and having a lot of fun in the process. Never could we have ever visualised our growth around the world,” said Ian Briggs, co-founder and design director of BAC.
