Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) is celebrating breaking further ground in the USA by officially launching BAC New York at elite dealership Manhattan Motorcars. The dealership – based in the affluent area of Chelsea – deals with only the luxury automotive brands like Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Koenigsegg, Porsche, Rimac and Lotus, and it’s now added BAC to its stable.
BAC is the maker of Mono – the world’s only single-seater, road-legal supercar. The Liverpool-based company already has a BAC USA dealership agreement in Scottsdale, Arizona, but Manhattan Motorcars is its first representation on the east coast.
Manhattan Motorcars will be displaying Mono at the upcoming New York International Auto Show in April, giving BAC fans on the east coast a chance to get up close and personal with the supercar and its core team.
Neill Briggs, BAC Co-Founder and Director of Product Development, said: “We are absolutely delighted to launch BAC New York with Manhattan Motorcars and continue our rapid expansion around the world. We pride ourselves on being the best at BAC – and being the best means working with the best. Manhattan Motorcars deals only with elite cars and it’s a privilege for us to once again rub shoulders with the most sought-after brands in the world. The dealership shares the BAC ethos of stellar service and ultimate satisfaction; we were so impressed by the way they perform it was an easy decision to join forces. We’re very excited to bring Mono Mania to the east coast of the USA!”
Manhattan Motorcars Dealer Principal, Brian Miller, added: “Manhattan Motorcars is ecstatic to exclusively launch and once again raise the elite bar with BAC New York. This is an amazing opportunity to display and elevate the platform of our combined ultimate performance tenor and essence. We here at Manhattan Motorcars couldn’t be more ready to launch Mono on the east coast!”
Since its launch in 2011, Mono has now been exported to over 35 territories worldwide, with dealership agreements in USA, Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, Japan and Sweden.
