Just one month after the 2024 BAC Mono was unveiled during Monterey Car Week, the British car manufacturer has handed over the keys to the first customer example.
Although the new Mono looks very similar to the original, it benefits from a series of upgrades and the owner of this particular one wanted an example that stands out from the pack. Much of the bodywork is painted in Metallic Liquid Silver while a bright turquoise color known as Aegean Sea adorns parts including the rear wing, parts of the wheels, the wing mirrors, and graphics on the side of the car.

The unique exterior finish of this BAC Mono also includes black and white chequered flag graphics on the engine bay. Various pieces of exposed carbon fiber are also visible across the car’s exterior while found in the cabin are some other Aegean Sea accents, a red 12 o’clock market on the carbon fiber steering wheel, and an embroidered headrest.
This particular 2024 Mono was delivered by BAC’s new retail space in Newport Beach, California and the owner also ordered it with a bespoke helmet that mimics the car’s exterior design.
Powering the new Mono is a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that revs through to 8,000 rpm and pumps out 311 hp and 231 lb-ft (313 Nm) of torque. Combined with the car’s overall weight of just 1,257 lbs (570 kg), the car has a phenomenal 546 hp-per-tonne power-to-weight ratio and can hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds.
“Perhaps a lesser known – yet equally important pillar – is what we offer each customer at the start of their Mono journey: the opportunity to create a supercar that is unique, a bespoke personal extension of the owner that forms a connection between art and machine,” co-founder Ian Briggs described. “This – the first customer delivery of the new Mono supercar – perfectly demonstrates that there are no creative constraints nor technical limitations when it comes to our ‘one-of-a-kind’ philosophy.”
