Wow, that car looks like it will be very interesting to drive in game. Somehow reminds me of a KTM X-bow

First I was like: Meh another exotic race car, I will never even SEE on street. Then I saw the cam showing the suspention and started to like it :D

(pCARS still defenitely needs some everyday cars and fun tracks for these)

We have time: "The BAC Mono will be available to Project CARS members later this year." ;)

Without precision, some months.

We're getting closer to a purist grid we could be able to race in, IMO there are just the X-Bow and the Lotus 2-Eleven missing (other suggestions are appreciated).

Another Toy car?

What about real Cars like the BMW M3 GT2 or Audi R8 LMS or whatever?

Seriously more cars is always great but only this toys? I don't know...

That thing looks mean, love it! Cant believe it's actually road legal. It's nice to see that the BAC engineers are interested in the development, does this mean that they'll give their input in order to make the physics more accurate?

I am sure they will add some cars that are usually wanted by the most people. I am personally waiting for the Nissan Skyline GTR and Golf 4 or 5 :D
But this car looks really nice, I think it will be very interesting to drive this car !

This Car I see the first time in my life and it was love on first look :) this is exactly what I expect from pCARS! To drive very special Cars, not that boring housewife shopping vehicles :) Thanks SMS <3

Awesome car but such toys as Caterham, Ariel, and that we already have in the game. I would like to test something simple.. like semi-sports sedan, hatchback, coupe ...

As I can see, it seems that Mr THE Stig tested it ... He may therefore give an informed opinion on the physics of the vehicle :) ?

Maybe we can say "the not Original Stig" ? ;) "Normally" Ben Collins is the first White Stig

I can't wait to try the Mono out; I've drooled over the BAC ever since it's specificiations were released.

You really need to stop wasting your time on GT5 and get out a bit more.

Interesting car. Would be good to test it in pCars.

I'd like to see some historic GT racing cars in the project, though. :)

I am not the biggest fan of the KTM X-Bow/ Ariel Atom/ Suzuki GSR4-class. But this car looks really cool. I like the front design and the body shape. Hopefully it will drive as sharp as it looks.

Alejandro Gorgal
19-01-2012, 22:37
It looks like Asseto Corsa might have the KTM X-Bow, that means IT'S ON!
SMS, kick their arse ;)

I think its a stunning car...

Heres the UK's Autocar review, which is rather positive...

http://www.autocar.co.uk/www.autocar.co.uk/CarReviews/FirstDrives/BAC-Mono-Mono-2.3/259023/


Should I buy one?If you have the money, the imagination and the desire to drive one of, if not THE most involving road cars that has ever been built, then why not? Who needs friends in life anyway…



Looks like other sim devs have missed a trick if you ask me.

Funnily enough it was when I read that review that I suggested to Suzy we contact the guys at BAC.

Have you though of approaching Ginetta, as they have produced some road and race classics, and have some nice current models.

Andy only confirmed that he thought of approaching Ginetta :rolleyes:

Seems like quite fun to drive.

I am keen to see how all these cars are going to fit in the propesed progression plan for career though.

The Ginetta G55 its a GT3 racing car. The others don't know... :p

Did I hear Ginetta? News just keep getting better and better! G55 would be awesome! :D

So.. Under which class does this car fall? Looking at the career road map.. I just don't see this fitting in any of the categories?

Are we limiting this sim only to cars which are eligable for certain race series? Of course not, we'll have a multiplayer "Track day" feature and eveyone can "run what they brung".

Seriously, why should a car have to fit into a specific category for appearing in the sim, there are plenty of people who just like to drive round a circuit in whatever they want, just to improve their own lap times and have a bit of fun. Not everyone wants to race all the time. ;)

You can always have one-make races or put them up against cars that have similar performance :)

FLX81
22-01-2012, 14:32
Exactly. The career design draft in the pdf is missing one-make and cup series but those would compliment the touring car races quite good. The draft a bit strange imho anyway... shouldnt Touring car go into GT rather than Formula..? Oh well, WIP, me knowey! :p

Its not that problematic. For instance: "your Sponsor Feretti invites you to participate on a promotion event to drive the BAC Mono vs. the Ariel Atom", this and something like that is common practice in reality as well! Or think about the race of champions! all doors are open for exotic cars, keep going :)

SOXY

I read in some article that the car its similar whit open wheels in some things.
