BAC Mono Police Car Sent To Isle Of Man Where Speed Limits Don't Apply

Track Car

This bonkers BAC Mono police car is being used to encourage road safety. Oh the irony.

Italy has a Lamborghini Huracan cop car. Japan has a GT-R. America has a Saleen S7. Not to be outdone, the Isle of Man now has a BAC Mono police car patrolling the streets. Yes, the bonkers single-seater that can comfortably outrun a McLaren P1 has been converted into a cop car. “The world’s only single-seater, road-legal supercar” will become an active member of the fleet and will also appear at local festivals to “encourage safe and responsible driving.” Can you see the irony in that?

Granted, the BAC Mono probably isn’t the most practical police car in the fleet, but it looks undeniably striking donning a police livery. BAC teamed up with the local government to make this one-off police-spec Mono a reality, which will be driven exclusively by advanced driver, police motorcyclist and collision investigator PC Andy Greaves, who was understandably “full of excitement”. Unsurprisingly, it attracts a lot of public attention when roaming the streets. “It’s a remarkable vehicle, and clearly will be of huge interest to bikers and car drivers alike," said Greaves. We are here to promote safe use of the road, and it’s amazing how many people want to talk to you when this is your transport."

Every opportunity we get, we stop and talk to visitors. Having a show-stopper like a BAC Mono police car on the fleet makes that so much easier.” Powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine Cosworth which produces 305-hp, the lightweight single-seater can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, so it should have no problem catching criminals. This isn’t the first time a BAC Mono has been let loose on the Isle of Man’s heavenly driving roads, some of which have no speed limit. Recently, BAC held an exclusive event for Mono owners on the picturesque island with full cooperation from the government, who helpfully closed roads and de-restricted speed limits just so BAC’s customers could have fun.
