Because fancy watches and supercars go together.
Bell & Ross may have a history of creating some exquisite watches, but the company sure knows how to design a supercar. The French watchmaker understands that supercar owners love fancy watches and there’s no better way to grab their attention than with a sleek supercar, or at least a design of one. At this week’s Baselworld timepiece exhibition in Switzerland, the watchmaker stole the show with the attractive Aero GT Concept. The Aero GT may not exist in real life, but Bell & Ross have created a design that supercar fanatics will love.
In addition to releasing some computer-generated photos, the watchmaker also released theoretical specs on the supercar. If it were to have an engine, it would be a twin-turbo 4.2-liter V8 matched to an eight-speed double-clutch transmission. Thanks to the 602 hp engine, the Aero GT is quoted to get to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds onto a top speed of 196 mph. Bell & Ross expects the Aero GT to weigh in at 2,910 lbs. thanks to its carbon monocoque and carbon fiber components as well as aluminum body panels. The watchmaker stresses that the concept has ties to the aeronautic industry and is inspired by stealth aircraft.
