BAC Mono Steals The Title Of “Fastest Supercar” At Goodwood

Briggs Automotive Company‘s (BAC) supercar, dubbed the Mono, is the world’s only single-seater, street-legal supercar. It has been quite the hit in the performance automotive world since its release in 2011. Based in Liverpool, England, it’s a star almost every year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, frequently topping leaderboards and having dominated the Race Cars for the Road category at last year’s event.

Earlier this month, it was on the track along with a slew of other impressive vehicles, including a Nürburgring record-holder Porsche GT2 RS, Ford GT, and an Aston Martin Vulcan — all of which gave it a good run for its money at the Festival Of Speed.

The BAC Mono came out on top, finishing 0.14 seconds faster than Goodwood’s previous record holder, the Nissan GT-R, and over a full-second faster than its nearest competitor, the GT2 RS.

Back in 2014, the GT-R secured the title of “fastest car” with Jann Mardenborough in the driver’s seat, with a time of 49.27 seconds. But, this year, with experienced driver Anthony Reid piloting, the Mono topped it with a 49.13-second Hillclimb run.

After the win, Anthony said, “What a sensational achievement this is — the fastest-ever supercar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed! To go up against some of the very best supercars and drivers around this year, and win so convincingly feels fantastic — and the new record is just the icing on the cake. I know the Hillclimb very, very well, but it’s always different and remains a challenging drive. There are lots of undulations and always so much to think about, but Mono is so accessible and agile that it just lapped up the challenge all week. I’m delighted with the record-breaking time and it’s amazing to see BAC at the top of the Goodwood leaderboards and in the record books once again.”
