Expectedly and rather sadly, Bell & Ross doesn’t plan to build such a car, but that didn’t stop the company from imagining what the jet-fighting super sports car would be capable of.
According to the company, the AeroGT two-seater houses a 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8, which produces a theoretical 610 horsepower, and that’s put to the rear wheels through an eight-speed double-clutch gearbox. The end result of that wallop of power means zero to 60 mph disappears in 2.9 seconds, 1000 meters are covered in 19.8 seconds, and a top speed of 195 mph is plausible.
Its sleek body resembles that of a marriage between Porsche’s 918 Spyder hypercar and a rarified Fenyr SuperSport, which is to say, quite a good mix. Telltale jet fighter features include the concept’s cockpit mimicking glass roof, rear stabilizer wing, “turbojet” exhaust pipes, turbine-style wheels, and side mirrors which resemble canards. All told, Bell & Ross says the largely carbon fiber hewn craft tips the scales at just 2,910 pounds.
Precise, sharp, and finely machined, this concept car shares more than a few attributes with today’s expertly engineered timepieces, and in this instance, it actually spawned two of its own—the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 and 03-94 Aero GT models.
Only 500 of those timepieces will be built and given their supercar inspiration, once can expect they won’t be cheap.
