The world's first ever BAC Mono police car has been unveiled.
Finished in police livery, this amazing looking road-going racer is set to patrol the streets of the Isle of Man – perfect for catching up with those who take the island's relaxed laws on speeding to the extreme.
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) teamed up with the Isle of Man government to provide them with the world's only single seat road-legal supercar.
PC Andy Greaves - an advanced driver, police motorcyclist and collision investigator – will be the force's dedicated Mono driver.
Speaking about the car, he said: "It's a remarkable vehicle, and clearly will be of huge interest to bikers and car drivers alike. We are here to promote safe use of the road, and it's amazing how many people want to talk to you when this is your transport."
The Liverpool based company has had a close relationship with the island since the launch of the Mono back in 2011, where the Isle of Man Government allowed BAC to develop the car, taking advantage of the stunning roads made famous by the TT race that takes place every year.
Director of product development, and co-founder of the company, Neill Briggs, said: "We have a very special affinity with the Isle of Man and we're absolutely delighted to bring this extra-special Mono to a remarkable police force.
"The Government has been nothing but amazingly supportive to BAC and the BAC dream, and we're honoured to be able to play our part in making their roads a safer place."
