Watch Jay Leno Take the BAC Mono for a Drive

Jay Leno recently spent some time with the BAC Mono in an episode of Leno's Garage. The car is based on a Formula 1 car, but it's completely street legal. Although because it's only a one-seater you wouldn't likely be using for your daily commute. The BAC Mono has an inline 4-cylinder Cosworth engine with 280 horsepower. That doesn't seem like a particularly impressive number, but with a curb weight of 1,500 pounds, the story changes. There's lots of carbon fiber in the Mono to make it so lightweight and help it achieve the impressive numbers.

Leno not only drives the car, but he also interviews the company's Sector 111 President, Shinoo Mapleton. The two talk about design and performance and how the goal was to make Formula 1 racing performance available outside of the professional circuit in something that people could drive on the track or on the road. Watch the video to get all the details and see Leno have a hell of a good time at the wheel. RELATED: See More of the 2013 BAC Mono
