Now, the area of interest automaker is teasing one thing new that can debut on the 2019 Goodwood occasion.
In its YouTube video description, BAC says “one thing large is coming” and we suspect the producer signifies that figuratively and actually.

The teaser no less than reveals the define of this automotive, and although it’s corresponding to the present Mono, there are some clear variations. The nostril seems a bit shorter, and the wheelbase seems to be a bit longer as nicely.
The massive change, nonetheless, seems to be within the center. It seems like there’s nonetheless an open cockpit behind the side-view mirrors, which we will simply see sticking up within the cowl. We are able to additionally see a middle crown just like the present Mono, however it’s longer and there’s clearly additional bodywork up excessive that nearly resembles a roof line. It’s clearly not a roof, however it may very well be a brand new fastback form for a two-seat cockpit. That will surely qualify as large on all fronts.
