The BAC Mono Becomes The World's First Car To Feature Graphene Panels

Written By:

British sports-car maker BAC becomes the first company to use graphene composites for the construction of a car.

The material will be initially used on the Mono's rear wheel arches. BAC decided to first use the new material on the rear wheel arches due to the complexity of the panel.

For starters, Graphene is a composite created out of sheets of carbon, which are just one atom thick, and it can reduce the weight up to 20 percent while being 200 times stronger than steel.

The 2016 model Mono comes with an all-new four-cylinder 2.5-litre Mountune engine, which can produce 305bhp. The single seater is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds.

The new BAC Mono with the graphene panels was showcased for the first time at the Science in the City festival in Manchester, UK.
