Cheshire-based Briggs Automotive Company has accomplished something quite amazing. They are one of the very few modern British sports car makers that have survived for more than two years! In fact, things seem to be going rather well for them, as they take their one and only car, the BAC Mono, to California for Jay Leno to have a go in.

There is no doubt Jay is going to like the BAC Mono. It is the world’s only road-legal single-seater supercar; one that is built for no other purpose than driving fun. It is right up Jay’s alley.
