BAC Mono driven in Death Valley
Another classic feature from the last 20 years of TG mag: the one-man BAC on America’s loneliest desert

The Mono really is next-level stuff. Both Ian and Neill are industry veterans, the former on the design side (with stints doing yachts, hotel interiors and toothbrushes for first class airline cabins), the latter as an engineering consultant and project director for all sorts of heavy hitters, including Porsche, Bentley and Ford. The Mono was originally meant to be a bit of sideline fun, a ‘What if Carlsberg made track cars' philosophical noodle. Fair to say the brothers Briggs got a bit carried away and actually did it, prompting the rest of us to get very interested.
