Almost as shocking as the momentous, massless acceleration is how easy, how natural, it is to drive the Mono fast. It's a grim cliché to describe a car as an extension of your body, but here it's actually true. Lying on your back in the dead centre of the chassis, a wheel at each corner, engine behind your head and a never-ending slug of even, addictive power, it's an act of instinct to thread the Mono through corners, rear tyres chatting convivially with your bottom.
