By distilling the Monaco, what’s left is a real race car driver behind the wheel of one of the fastest cars ever made.
While automotive racing continues its expansion and popularity growth throughout the world, both new and longtime fans gravitate towards the adrenaline of high-power racecars maneuvering along tight circuits. It’s a tradition that began long before technology when aerodynamic body design and performance came from the hands of a passionate car enthusiast. Carrying on the classic look and feel of a vintage F1 car, the team at Bandit9 Motors is proud to showcase the all-electric Monaco as the sports car that brings back the focus, skill, and joy of driving. The single-seat chassis features a carbon construction acting as a blank canvas to support the add-ons and liveries of future owners. With an incredibly low and aggressive ride height, the Bandit9 Monaco takes on the appearance of an F1 car using a rear-positioned powertrain and a set of lightweight aero disk wheels.
Powered by the same electric engine and LFP batteries as a Tesla Model S, the Monaco produces over 536 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. Bandit9 achieves a 2.7-second 0-60mph time by harnessing instant acceleration from its electric engine platform. Every Monaco comes with an at-home rapid charging station, with the ability to charge anywhere across the country with Tesla Superchargers. Inside, the vehicle is fitted with a custom F1-style steering wheel specifically made for each owner in collaboration with Bandit9 race engineers and designers. In combination with the side view mirrors, gain 360-degree track awareness through the Monaco’s ultra-wide tactical camera. It displays a panoramic view of the rear with low latency, and in a high-definition 1080p display. As an available accessory to pair with the Monaco, Bandit9 showcases the fully loaded smart helmet as the next-generation safety device that incorporates state-of-the-art technology. The carbon fiber helmet includes a race playback camera, team radio, hazard alert, and a forcite remote. The all-new Bandit9 Monaco is currently available for configuration starting at $150,000.
