"Car designers talk about getting volume into their shapes," Ian says. "But I wanted to take all the volume out of the car. It makes no attempt to disguise the fact that it's basically a series of mechanical components. There's bodywork at the front, but as little as possible at the rear. Just like on a modern superbike." Brilliantly, Ian also references film maker Chris Cunningham's stunning video for Bjork's ‘All Is Full of Love' as inspiration, and agrees that a Mono's bodywork - which can be removed relatively easily - would work as a piece of industrial sculpture hanging in the Tate Modern.
