Automotive history is littered with projects and concepts that push the envelope and concept of what a car should be , but few have even come close to even match the out the box thinking of the Briggs Automotive Company .
Their concept was simple to build a machine to allow for the purest form of driver engagement. Their clean sheet thinking and design process has produced something truly radical , a car that compromises on nothing but the ability to allow the driver to engage with the road in a way that no other car can even come close to matching.
Since its launch I think the personality of the mono is getting a little bit lost, it fast becoming known as a track car with number plates and a tax disc however I think if you spend some time with it and forget the conventions of what a car should be (as they did when building this project). You start to realise that yes it does use race technology and yes it does loosely take its styling cues from single seater racing , however its not a race car. For me you realise that its form and function are more geared much like the gearbox for the highway.
With the pictures we wanted to get the Mono away from the track out into the open road and usher viewers to get out and just drive the car, in the way its intended to be driven. I wanted to place this ultra sleek ultra modern car out into the truly rural setting and then prove that the car is as much at home here as it is on a race track.
