The Top Gear car review:BAC Mono
Running costs and reliability
OK, £150,000 is an absurd price for a car that requires you to strap your loved one to the roll hoop if you’re planning a weekend away. But who buys a single-seater open cockpit racer for practical reasons? Though it’s too early to know for sure, we’re optimistic that the Mono should prove a decent ownership prospect, at least in comparison to the supercars it’s capable of embarrassing around a track or on the road: its engine and gearbox are tried and tested, its fuel economy is reasonable. And frankly, once you’ve punted it around a racetrack, you won’t give a damn about its residual values.
