With extreme lightweighting and anti-corrosive treatments, the carbon-fiber Mono is almost the perfect maritime companion. A bespoke crane loading cradle is made of CF and integrated into the monoposto BAC design elegantly. The Mono’s ultra light and low dimensions make it a perfect supercar for storing on your yacht — with room in the renders for even a pair of the Mono Marine Editions in the side garage of a mega-yacht.
Pricing is Pounds 500k for the Marine Edition, which will be made to order and exclusive to the world’s most stylish — and thrill-seeking — 0.001-percent.
The Mono dimensions also make it a perfect roadster for storing under a mega-buck RV as well…
