Project CARS – BAC Mono Licensing Announced
Slightly Mad Studios, WMD powered Project CARS is constantly undergoing development as it progresses through its development stage. Today Slightly Mad Studios released new information on the latest licensing addition to Project CARS, the stunning BAC Mono. Project CARS will be the first game to feature the spectacular, ultra high performance, road-legal sports vehicle.
The Mono is powered by a 2.3 litre four-cylinder Cosworth engine – providing 280bhp at 7700rpm – which is mated to a F3-spec Hewland six-speed sequential gearbox. Weighing in at a mere 540 kilograms, the car sprints from 0-60 miles in a mind-blowing 2.8 seconds; reaching a top speed of 170mph.
The BAC Mono will be available later this year for Project CARS members to enjoy. Along with the latest news of the BAC coming to Project CARS was a very interesting quote from the directors of BAC stating their reasons for allowing the car to be modeled and used in Project CARS, check it out below.
