YOU'LL need £158,950 for one of the final three versions of a car that's the closest you'll get to an F1 machine for the road. So, no passenger alongside for the ride of a lifetime..

The single-seater BAC Mono One is built on Merseyside by the Briggs Automotive Company and this special edition marks the end of production before a new model goes on sale next year.

Powered by a highly tuned 305bhp Ford 2.5 litre petrol engine - and capable of hitting 62mph in 2.7 seconds - just three examples of Mono One will be available worldwide, finished in Iconic White, Carbon Black or Neon Red.

This special edition Mono One represents a true collector's item, with a unique specification and a host of special-edition options as standard marking the trio out from Monos past.

They all feature visible carbon lower bodies, special-edition carbon-hybrid wheels finished in a unique colour scheme, brand new and unique logos across the car and commemorative plaques as standard, plus the usual scope for bespoke Mono personalisation, including made-to-measure seat and steering wheel.

BAC's design team paid homage to singer Bjork's 1999 ‘All Is Full Of Love' music video when it came to creating Mono One, as the robot within the video inspired the car's looks when it was first designed over a decade ago. A Bjork-robot-inspired logo features on the wing and the headrest across Iconic White, Carbon Black and Neon Red editions.

On top of a long list of standard features, Mono One also comes with a one-off helmet with Bjork-robot-inspired livery, accentuating the concept of the driver as an integral part of the car.
