The Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has revealed a successor to its Mono single-seater lightweight sports car. As with the original, it features exposed carbon bodywork and a familiar overall silhouette, but the 2.3-litre Mountune-developed Ford engine has been fitted with a turbocharger for the first time, promising not just improved efficiency, but also 25 extra bhp and a whopping 30% torque increase.

Last year, Autocar reported that Bentley’s in-house coachbuilding arm Mulliner was at work on an ultra-exclusive, £1.5 million roadster with styling influenced by the striking EXP GT 100 concept, and we’ve now seen the finished product. The Mulliner Bacalar Convertible is one of the most luxurious models yet to come out of Crewe, with wool, tweed and 5500-year-old riverwood among the materials used to trim its unique two-seat cockpit. The only features carried over from Bentley’s production cars are the door handles and steering wheel cap, further enhancing its exclusivity.
