BAC on Thursday unveiled the new Mono R, heralding the second generation of the company's road-legal track toy.
It's lighter than before, but it's also more powerful than before, which means its performance should easily trounce its forebear.
The whole package weighs just 1,224 pounds in its R form, which is ridiculously light and also some 55 pounds lighter than the standard Mono.
All that weight savings comes from a confluence of lightweight parts, including a magnesium chassis, magnesium transmission parts, carbon-ceramic brakes, a titanium exhaust system, lighter AP Racing brakes and a carbon-fiber floor.
The body panels are also made of carbon fiber.
Speaking of the body panels, the new Mono doesn't look too different compared to its predecessor, sporting the same wildly styled look that's more at home on a racing circuit than your local village road.
BAC has paid extra attention to the aerodynamics, growing wider side pods while improving the efficiency of the rear wing.
Under the body is a 2.5-liter I4 producing about 340 horsepower, about 35 more than the standard Mono.
That extra power comes from a larger cylinder bore, a shorter crankshaft stroke, a new air intake, revised throttle bodies and a tweaked cylinder head.
