Inspired by Grand Tourers a.k.a Grand Turismo in Italian, Bruno Belamich, Bell & Ross creative director, has designed Bell & Ross AeroGT. Each year, in order to create new models, he needs new sources of inspiration. Following the success of B-Rocket motorbike, he wanted to go further by designing a concept car. This project aimed to come up with a car that can hold its own, even amongst automotive professionals. AeroGT became the starting point for the creation of a new pair of watches, BR 03 AeroGT models.
Bell & Ross AeroGT concept car celebrates the legend of racing cars which were produced in the land of Pasolini in the 50s, particularly Ferrari 250 GTO, designed to be both great speeds and on the track. This project is a supercar inspired by aviation where Bell & Ross is keeping in touch with its aeronautic roots. This car is extremely low and aerodynamic, it has 4.7 meter long body that seems to split the air like an arrow. Just like some stealth aeroplanes, the body features pointed form with sharp angles and cutting overhangs. From above, the drop-shaped glass roof reminds of the glass cover of a jet cockpit.
Something is a bit odd, if you take a look at the wing mirrors, those are razorthin mirrors. Inspired by small wings called canards, which usually placed on the nose of a jet fighter. There are 2 unusually sized exhaust pipes evoke turbojet engine exhausts, you can also notice the turbine style rims imitate the vanes of supersonic aircraft engines. You’ll be amazed with impressive detail of the rear longitudinal aileron, it’s been designed as reminiscent of an aircraft’s vertical stabilizer. The main role of this element is to stabilize the racing car when performing quick turns. Basically, Bell and Ross AeroGT combines motoring and aviation to the greatest possible degree.
