Updated with Pebble Beach 2015 Photos
The BAC Mono had prime placement on the Concept Lawn of Pebble Beach! The corner spot is cherished thanks to the resort walkway layout. On concours sunday, tens of thousands will see the BAC Mono’s stealthy racecar stance! Ready to pounce…
Same deal for its showing at the Quail.
Just a few new photos to share, but worthwhile to see the new 2016 any way possible.
Also pumped to share the actual BAC Mono configurator link. After a rendered color post… good to see that wild greens and yellows can be made real.
The showcar wears the carbon lower body vs gloss black in the options. The upper color is seal grey. Though hot in any setup, a lighter upper body makes the style much more vibrant.
Colors aside, the option list has some sweet checkboxes. Carbon-ceramic brakes are notable, but all seem tempting. The bespoke race suit and carbon helmet seem like must-haves to us, too.
2016 BAC Mono Motorsport Options
Our English supercar chums have it so good. Yes, you can buy the monoposto 2016 BAC Mono from anywhere in the world. But it is a rare place that will slap license plates on both ends and let you play F1 hero on public roads.
The 2016 model year brings big changes for the stunning Mono, showcased in a fiery new red paintwork at Goodwood 2015. Along with some super-sticky Kumho tires, the new 305-horsepower drivetrain delivered big-time at the rolling motor show.
2.5-liter Mountune Ford power with drive-by-wire throttle replaces the previous 2.3-liter unit. The bump of 25 horsepower is matched by a much more precise trigger action for that right pedal.
We’ve gathered up all the Mono images we can source, as the exterior of the new 2016 matches the 2014-2015 cars.
What is striking is how chameleon-esque the design is in a various colors. It almost looks like a totally different car! Up close, the detailing is stellar. A single nose-cone look flows upward over the hood and into some slim hips at both ends. What looks like solid dark plastic in the sills from afar is actually a number of wildly angled intakes and aero planes. The spider-like pushrod racing suspension arms and totally carved-out rear bodywork is unlike any other car on Earth.
It’s a gorgeous machine, with even better performance in this first major update.

Liverpool, 17th August 2015
BAC cemented its status as a unique British brand in the top tier of the luxury market with appearances at the most exclusive motoring events in the world: Pebble Beach and The Quail.
As a sponsor of The Quail Rally, – an invitation-only three-day event – The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, BAC proudly sits with some of the most recognized luxury brands in the world.
Having introduced the 2016 Model Year Mono at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month – where it unofficially broke the course record – BAC showcased the Mono on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
BAC’s appearances on the West Coast of America this week are an indication of the worldwide growth the company has seen in the last couple of years, rising from British track car manufacturer to global luxury player. At its new factory in Liverpool, BAC builds one car per month, with strong demand from customers in the US, Europe, South America and Asia.
Andrew Whitney, Director of Strategy and Corporate Development, said: “The Mono is much more than a track car – it’s a scrupulously engineered luxury product that uses the best materials and the best minds to create something that truly stands in a league all of its own. We believe that Pebble Beach and The Quail are the best events of their kind in the world and that’s why we’re here. We want driving enthusiasts around the world to experience the unique thrill of the Mono, and these events are quite simply the best places we can do that.”
Andrew was pleased to welcome Andy Palmer to the BAC stand at Pebble Beach, saying: “We were delighted to have Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, visit us at The Quail. Aston Martin is a great British company and he was hugely supportive of our product and plans.”
The BAC 2016 Model Year Mono features an all-new 2.5-litre Mountune four-cylinder engine producing 305bhp – that’s up 25bhp on the previous 2.3-litre Cosworth engine. The revised car weighs in at just 580kg giving an incredible 526bhp per tonne. The new 2016 Model Year Mono also includes a drive-by-wire throttle as well as a bespoke driver fitment culminating in a custom steering wheel and seat tailor-made for the owner.
