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.
Temecula, CA (December 8, 2011) -- Sector111, LLC, the industry leader in aftermarket performance parts & service for the Lotus Elise, Exige and the Ariel Atom, has been named the exclusive importer of the BAC Mono. The Mono has taken the British Press by storm with it's performance and has been named by TopGear's ace test driver, The Stig, as his car of 2011.
