Mono builds yacht car

Jul 20, 2015 by Dorie Cox

BAC in conjunction with Camper & Nicholsons is building a marine edition of its Mono brand for yachts. The Mono is a lightweight, high-performance car capable of more than 170 mph. The new Marine Edition Mono will weigh 580kg and be powered by a new Mountune 2.5L engine that produces 305 horsepower, delivered through a Hewland FTR gearbox found on current F3 race cars.

“I started my career in the luxury yacht design field and have always wanted to combine my love of marine and automotive design,” said BAC co-founder and director of design Ian Briggs. “We had an opportunity here to bring something unique, functionally pure, exciting and even practical on the level of weight optimization.”

The car will feature anti-corrosive components, a proprietary lifting system, an environmental control container system for on board storage in a climate-controlled environment, and custom interior and exterior design to match the yacht’s styling and owner preference.
