Details of the new car are limited at this stage, but preview images show developments including a distinctive new air intake mounted behind the driver. This indicates that some sort of power upgrade is on the cards.
BAC co-founder and director of product development, Neil Briggs, said: “It’s been an incredible and truly humbling journey since we launched Mono back in 2011, and now it’s time to turn the dials up a notch. We did our first prototype testing at the Shelsley Walsh hillclimb and blew our class away - a good sign of things to come.”
The current Mono, which is claimed to have broken five worldwide production car lap records since its release in 2011, is powered by a 296bhp Ford-sourced 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine. It’s not clear yet whether that will be retained and upgraded or replaced by a new unit altogether.
More than 120 examples of the single-seat supercar have found homes so far in 40 countries. The current car already puts out 535bhp per tonne - a figure that beats the Porsche 918 Spyder. A teaser video for the newly updated model has also been released, below:
