Remember the BAC Mono? The 1,190-pound, 280-horsepower, £79,950 single-seater from the UK was inspired by Bjork's "All is Full of Love" video, a car that Autocar scribe Steve Sutcliffe called "Fan-bleeding-tastic." The Mono has a U.S. importer now, that being Sector111, the folks in Temecula, California that address the aftermarket needs of Lotus Elise and Exige and Ariel Atom owners.

Previously, the company had said its entire run of 50 for 2012 was sold out, but they've managed to scrape up "less than 12" to offer the U.S. market next year. Pricing hasn't been announced, but a straight conversion of the UK price works out to $125,138. That's costly, but not out of the question for a roadgoing Elise-beater that can run like an F3 racer on the track and just happens to be The Stig's Car of 2011.

        I would love to see this become a "class" of car... Ariel Atom, KTM x-box, and this are all great little cars, but prices really need to come down.

      It may be "road-going" in the UK, but I can't imagine it will be in the US.

          Hip hop artists don't buy these types of cars. They buy flashy and really, REALLY expensive cars.

        If it is sold as a kit, similar to a Caterham, I think it has a good chance of being road legal on the US.

      It is about 2x as much as the KTM Crossbow, that is imported into the UK, torn apart, then reassembled in the US. But is it 2x the car -1 seat?
