What Happened To Briggs Automotive Company

Remember a couple of years ago when a small British company called Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) was the world’s first automaker to use a graphene in the body panels. They previewed their BAC Mono sports car, where the rear wings were built from this material.

The premiere of the car took place at Manchester’s “Science in the City” festival. Since then there has been no word on their development, product sale or even the name Briggs.

The BAC Mono sports car was powered by a 4-cylinder engine and a 2.5-liter engine that generated 310hp. The gearbox used was a sequential 6-speed gearbox. The car’s weight was just 580kilos. It could accelerate up to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and had a maximum speed of 273 km/h.

The body elements were jointly prepared with Haydale Composite Solutions. Graphene is thinner, lighter and stiffer than carbon fiber. This allow the weight of the vehicle to be reduced by 20%, at the same time being tougher than steel by 200 times.
