    BAC Mono - Autocar review

    Very informative and entertaining Autocar review of the latest British lightweight track-special.

    I didn't expect them to be that positive about it, apparently it really is a quality item

    Oh, boy, oh boy... I will give them a call after Frankfurt. I'm in love.

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: BAC Mono - Autocar review

    Wow, that is the perfect track car for me if I could ever get one in Australia! I'm curious about the comment at the end. Steve is one of the best known journalist around, yet he says he is not rich enough to buy a £80k car? It's not exactly priced like a Zonda or anything! Do motor journalist get paid that badly?? Monkey Harris seems to do pretty well going by his cars!

    Re: BAC Mono - Autocar review

    That things looks like huge fun!  I wonder if it will be road legal outside the UK?

    Chris Harris comes from a wealthy family Smiley  Auto journalists don't earn big bucks ...... unless they are one of the Top Gear presenters of course.

    So, what happened to the Caparo T1? Wan't that the first serious attempt at a track monster for on the road? And it also looks better imo...

    That costs several times more though and doesn't look as friendly at the limit.

    Joost, are you saying that you find the Caparo more attractive?

    Re: BAC Mono - Autocar review

     The Caparo is so much quicker, especially above 60 mph and on a race track. These kit cars are good fun but they are not actual motorcars.

    Re: BAC Mono - Autocar review

    This thing looks like so much fun! Makes you feel like an F1 racer. I would decal the sh!t out of it to make your favorite F1 race car theme...

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)
