Buying

What should I be paying?

Go on the BAC website and they list used cars for sale. This is something tiny sports car firms can do – maintain relations with customers and they’ll give you the car back to sell. Small numbers and high demand mean depreciation is low. This is what you need to bear in mind before slating the high asking price.

Upwards of £160k for the Mono, rising to £235k for the R, to save you flicking back to the Overview page.
