10 years ago, in March 2009, Neill and Ian Briggs embarked on a journey to create the world’s first one-seater, road-legal supercar. The resulting car, the Mono, was launched to worldwide acclaim — tearing onto the scene with a £168,000 price tag and a Veyron-matching power-to-weight ratio of 525bhp per tonne.
Last month, the 100th Mono rolled off the production line, and Gentleman’s Journal followed the Liverpool-made centenary edition to Denmark, where it was delivered to the Strøjer Samlingen Motor Museum.
With exposed carbon bodywork, the car was the first Mono rendered in British Racing Green — a colour choice accentuated by gold highlights on the exterior, and gold stitching inside. A ‘Chassis 100’ plaque was also fitted to the car.
This Mono will take up its proud position alongside Ferraris, Bugattis, Porsches and Lamborghinis from across the last century — and museum owner Jørgen Strøjer-Hansen promises to use it as speedily as the carmakers intended. Take a look at the full video above.
