The 2014 BAC Mono is a lightweight sports car that appears in Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Horizon 3 where it is also featured as a Horizon Edition car with a Speed skill boost. It also appears in the E3 2017 announcement trailer for Forza Motorsport 7[1].

The Mono was designed by Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) along with several automobile engineering companies including Cosworth. It is an ultralight single-seater car powered by a 280 hp Duratec engine that can reach 173 mph (278 km/h) as top speed, making it the second fastest road-legal track car after the Ariel Atom 500 V8.

DescriptionEdit

It has no doors and no windscreen. It has a third pedal, but you don’t have to use it. The BAC Mono is completely unique - part jet fighter, part Formula car and in a league of its own. The Mono is one of the only single-seater production cars that’s not only street legal, but ready to conquer any track. Words can’t prepare you for the driving experience that will have you singing the Mono’s praises. Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) is headed by brothers Neil and Ian Briggs, who both have deep histories in design and innovation. The Mono is a realization of their lifelong dream to challenge convention and define new limits in vehicle performance. With only 50 models built in 2014, the Mono is a thrilling driving experience that few have tasted.

DesignEdit

The Mono was built using a carbon fiber foam sandwich composite over a tubular steel chassis with FIA compliant safety features and weighs 1354 lb (614 kg). It has a centrally located driving position with a longitudinally mounted engine sitting behind, resulting in a (48/52)% weight distribution. Its suspension design consists of pushrod actuated wishbones on both axles and is fully adjustable.[3]

The 2.3 litre inline-four Duratec engine has a compression ratio of 13.1:1 and produces 280 hp (284 PS; 209 kW) at 7700 rpm as well as 206 ft·lb (279 Nm) of torque at 6000 rpm.[4]

PerformanceEdit

The Mono can perform a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) launch in only 2.8 seconds which makes it the quickest launching road-legal track toy car in the Forza series. It requires an equally impressive 6.7 seconds when accelerating to 100 mph (161 km/) and reaches 173 mph (278 km/h) as top speed.

The Mono has a sharp steering and rigid chassis, allowing it to have forgiving handling characteristics and achieve high lateral acceleration figures. Therefore, it is very useful for handling-demanding tracks where it can outperform most track toy cars and modern supercars.

The Horizon Edition increases the Mono's top speed to 175 mph (282 km/h) and has slightly improved handling without changing the performance index value of its stock counterpart.
