The Top Gear car review:BAC Mono
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
There isn’t much of an interior to the Mono, but what little there is has been immaculately executed. Forget your traditional bolted-together-frombits- of-old-washing-machine British lightweight special: this is a top-grade piece of automotive design, every component, weld and join finished with glorious attention to detail.
The suede-style cabin lining is resistant to urine and human faeces, which is useful to know. Unlike most Brit lightweights, there’s actually room in the footwell for both your feet, and enough space in the front boot for a helmet and, erm, a raincoat. Which you’ll need, because in the event of a rainstorm you’ve got two choices: outrun the clouds, or get wet.
