    The Mono is powered by a 2.3-litre, 285 bhp four-cylinder engine provided by Cosworth. The engine is mounted longitudinally to maintain the centralised balance of the car. The car runs a F3-specification six-speed sequential gearbox developed by Hewland. This gearbox operates a semi-automatic transmission tuned to complete gear shifts in 35 milliseconds. These specifications result in a 0–62 mph (0–100 km/h) time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h) [3]

    The Mono ran 1:14.3 at the Top Gear test track. This makes it the second fastest legal production car ever to go around the track



    Weight-distribution in the Mono is focused on maintaining a low centre of gravity. The system includes a fully adjustable pushrod suspension system with damping elements made by SACHS Racing. AP Racing developed the retardation and stopping ability of the car.

    I really hope this car makes it into the game. I´m surprised it´s not in GT6. It´s such a pure driving machine and easy on the eyes.

    One of my new favourites, a big reason as to why I bought GRID 2, still haven't unlocked it there though.

    I hope we can get more of these track day cars in the game. Nothing like a car whose purpose is to run like hell on the track and then take you home.

    If Pagani didn't cheat and put slicks on the Huayra used for that lap, the Mono would be on top.

    I want to drive this in GT for the least because it looks like that it wouldn't be classed as a road legal car in Japan because it looks like that it's too low...
    EDIT: Actually, it isn't. It is high as a NSX.

    I just remembered GRID 2 has a Bac Mono edition... It cost about 125.000 euros, it brings the car, a GRID 2 racesuit and the game. Deadmau5 is the only person so far to have it. It set the guiness world record for the most expensive game ever.

    A very worthy rival to the KTM X-Bow in both Grid 2 and hopefully, if it will be in the game, GT6.
