A little over a decade after its launch (which took place in 2011), the small Liverpool manufacturer Briggs Automotive Company (Bac) celebrates the production of the 150th Mono, a compact supercar that always ensures emotional driving.

It does so with the creation of a special model called Mono R29 commissioned by the Belgian financier Julien Begasse de Dhaem on the basis of specific finishing and construction characteristics.
During the creative process - reads the note - Julien worked closely with the Bac design team, alongside specialist Daniel Youd, to build on the company's philosophy (that of constantly improving form and function) a phenomenal machine masked by ultra-thin body panels.
“Like all of our clients, Julien immersed himself in the process of designing the car's livery, detailing and features through our Bac Bespoke programme,” Youd explained.
The Mono R29 uses a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre 4-cylinder dry-sump engine delivering 342 HP mated to a Formula 3-derived six-speed sequential transmission, exceptionally low dry weight (555 kg) and ultra-agile chassis, make it very fast and very agile even on the track.
On the occasion of the presentation of the Mono R29 #150, the Briggs Automotive Company, looking to the future with confidence, also unveiled its e-Mono concept powered by hydrogen fuel cells which had been anticipated last May.
