Slightly Mad Studios have announced the addition of another fully-licensed vehicle to their WMD-powered Project CARS title as the stunning BAC Mono will be joining the title in 2012.
The BAC Mono is a lightweight, road legal sport vehicles sports vehicle, aiming to bring the sensation of single-seater driving to public roads.
The car comes with advanced, racing-inspired aerodynamics, the sleek form allowing for clean airflow to the car’s radiators and engine. Designed to be as aerodynamically efficient as possible, the Mono offers supercar levels of top speed while delivering handling precision and balance stability that complement the outstanding levels of mechanical grip on offer.
Despite the sophisticated aerodynamics however, BAC did manage to include a small trunk at the front into which a helmet fits perfectly. Aside from this one allusion to practicality, every detail of the BAC Mono is performance-led, including a fully-adjustable pushrod suspension with damping elements from SACHS Racing, AP Racing brakes with 295mm ventilated discs and a FIA compliant steel safety cell and rollover structure.
The Mono is powered by a 2.3 litre four-cylinder Cosworth engine – providing 280bhp at 7700rpm – which is mated to a F3-spec Hewland six-speed sequential gearbox. Weighing in at a mere 540 kilograms, the car sprints from 0-60 miles in a mind-blowing 2.8 seconds; reaching a top speed of 170mph.
