Jay Leno singles out the BAC Mono

The BAC Mono comes closer to the claim of a formula racing car for the road than just about anything else ever made. Naturally, Jay Leno just had to check one out, and did just that for his latest video segment.

Watch a McLaren P1 get tormented by a BAC Mono at Silverstone

Could there be anything more infuriating than making a million-plus-dollar investment in a vehicle like the McLaren P1, only to take it to a track and find you're unable to outrun a car that costs, without options, about 96,000 pounds ($159,000 at today's rates)?

Xcar puts you behind the wheel of the BAC Mono

In terms of extreme driving experiences, we imagine a single-seat racecar is the epitome. Seeing as how most of us lack the talent or the ridiculous financial backing and sponsorships to secure a race seat, though, it seems unlikely we'll ever fully realize what the single-seat experience is like.

Watch the first BAC Mono build in the US slalom its way into our hearts

Grid 2: Mono Edition is some kind of spendy video game

For years now, video game makers (and their marketing teams, more than likely) have sought to amp up the excitement of their new releases with wild and lavish special edition packages. Our own Call of Duty Prestige Master, John Neff, is sure to remember the functional night vision goggles that shipped with CoD's Modern Warfare 2, and the radio-controlled "surveillance vehicle" that was packed in with Black Ops. The monstrous Halo franchise has offered special edition g

Sector111 has announced it will unveil the first US-built BAC Mono at the upcoming Cars and Coffee in Irvine, California.

BAC Mono slithers around in the wet with Chris Harris

Chris Harris has gotten his hands on the BAC Mono on a closed track. With 280 horsepower and a curb weight of just 1,190 pounds, the machine may very well be the king of the open-wheel, street-legal hooligans.

Molecule By Molecule: Examining Sector 111's Ariel Atom

We called the gloriously minimalist Ariel Atom "awesomeness that defies all classification." And that's just how we feel about the outside; Auto Shepherd stopped by Arizona distributor Sector 111 (which, incidentally, will also handle the outrageous BAC Mono) to pore over every detail under the Atom's skin, what little of it there

BAC Mono now available in U.S.

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, t

BAC Mono single-seat road car is "fan-bleeding-tastic"

Autocar's ex-racer scribe Steve Sutcliffe sat himself in the middle of the BAC Mono – which is the only place to sit, actually – and came away with a helmet full of glee. The £79,950 single-seater apparently drives just like an F3 car, an effect created in part by its 1,190-pound weight, 280-horsepower, four-cylinder Cosworth engine and its F3 suspension. Sutcliffe said it handles better
