BAC has unveiled a special version of its Mono single-seat super-car that perfectly fits in any super-yacht – the Marine Edition Mono. This Marine Edition Mono is derived from the MY2016 Mono and is powered by a 305bhp 2.5-liter Mountune engine.
BAC made sure that this edition of the Mono is not only exclusive and luxurious but is also suited to the super-yacht environment in which performance, design and mass are considered as important. In fact, the Marine Edition Mono features a weight of only 580 kg, which allows it to be perfectly loaded on a super yacht.
It comes with a carbon-fiber crane arm that can be used on all yacht crane systems, thereby enabling the super-car to be transported on top of any super-yacht. In developing the chassis of the Marine Edition Mono, BAC appropriately considered the crane arm.
In fact, the chassis features custom lifting points for super-yacht crane cradles and mounting to helipads. The components of the Marine Edition Mono are all wrapped in BAC-developed anti-corrosive coating, which means that even on the beach or on the sea, the super-car is thoroughly protected.
During delivery, the Marine Edition Mono will be shipped with an Environmental Control Container System that features temperature and humidity controls, thereby protecting the car from the marine environment. Entirely bespoke and built-to-order, the Marine Edition Mono is produced in a dedicated BAC plant in Liverpool.
Despite the high price tag of £500,000, the Marine Mono Edition has taken quite an interest from customers in the United States, Asia and South America. BAC is currently able to produce four examples of the Marine Edition Mono every month.
Ian Briggs, co-founder of BAC, reminisced the days when he started his career designing luxury yachts. He remarked that he had wanted to combine his love of marine and automotive design, and that this has been realized with the Marine Edition Mono.
On the other hand, Andrew Whitney, Director of Strategy & Corporate Development at BAC, described super-yachts as epitomes of exquisite taste, outstanding design, and superb experience. He remarked that super-yacht owners could extend experience beyond their vessels upon arrival with the Marine Edition Mono.
