BAC Mono is the Star of the Show in Latest H.R. Owen DRIVE Magazine

23/12/2016

The One-of-a-Kind BAC Mono has made its way onto the front cover of yet another major automotive title: H.R. Owen’s DRIVE magazine.

DRIVE is all about celebrating a distinct love for getting behind the wheel, and thrills on four wheels don’t come much better than with the Mono, which is built to provide the purest and most authentic driving experience in the world.  

The magazine features eight pages on the Mono, digging deep into the brilliance of the car on an epic tour around London, plus the brains behind it – including an interview with co-founder and director of product development, Neill Briggs.
 
BAC cemented its status as a luxury product when it joined H.R. Owen’s fleet in 2016, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini and Ferrari.  

But nothing turns heads on the busy streets of London quite like a Mono.  

During DRIVE’s tour of the city, endless admirers and supercar spotters flocked to get a photo of the lightweight British machine while it flexed its versatile muscles. 

Despite its scintillating pace, the Mono is far more than just a track car and it proved as much by elegantly manoeuvring the busy city streets under the control of BAC test driver, Oli Webb.  

It certainly looked the part en route, too, as DRIVE commented: “The Mono should win an award for its head-turning ability. Introducing the car to the capital, via The Mall, left Londoners open-mouthed.”  

BAC has enjoyed excellent business with leading luxury group H.R. Owen as a dealer, as new clients and fans have been converted to the Mono way of thinking.  

Plus, the brand has hosted two hugely successful track days at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium to give this fresh audience a taste of the cutting-edge technology and engineering that makes the Mono a true icon.

Commenting on the DRIVE coverage, Neill Briggs said: “We’ve had a fantastic year with H.R. Owen, and being on the cover in DRIVE magazine rounds it all off. The trip around London shows that the city is just as natural a habitat for the Mono as a race track, and the response from the public was something else! It’s a true privilege to line up alongside Rolls-Royce, Maserati, Bugatti and Co., and we’re very excited to see what 2017 brings.”
