There is no getting round the truth that theis one hell of a cool (however very area of interest) automobile. So, how do you go about turning one thing that is already sort of catnip for automotive weirdos into one thing that is much more distinctive and particular?
Effectively, you slap on the livery from one of many ships from the completely superior (and completely ’90s) PlayStation racing sport, Wipeout. That is exactly what BAC did for a buyer who was taking supply of the very first instance of its restricted BAC Mono R. The outcomes are actually, actually cool.
What’s a? Effectively, it’s the higher-performing model of the already bananas single-seat BAC Mono. Along with an exhaustive redesign of the automotive’s physique, BAC teamed up with British tuning agency Mountune to create a 340-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine for the R.
The particular livery taken from Wipeout is that of FEISAR (aka Federal European Industrial Science and Analysis), and recreating it for the Mono R required a stunning quantity of effort.
Particularly, BAC claims it took over 10 days to color, due to greater than 400 painted graphics on the automobile. Yeah, that is proper: paint — no vinyl wraps right here. As a result of the Mono R does not have niceties like a roof or a windshield, BAC additionally had its group paint a helmet for the fortunate driver to match the physique of the automotive.
Now, should you’ll excuse me, I will name my mother and have her mail my historical PlayStation so I can play Wipeout obsessively prefer it’s 1996 once more.
