When a luxury watchmaker intends to make a supercar

Sometimes because of the spirit of innovation, or be tempted by the large potential of market for those who would infatuated expensive items and no pity for wasting money, so a company can create a buzz that has never been imagined by anyone.

This is apparently done by a luxury watchmaker named Bell & Ross, because recently they have expressed their interest to plunge in the world of supercars. Oops, from the watches directly to supercar?

Having already designed the B-Rocket motorcycle, Bell & Ross has shifted its sights to developing its own supercar. Known as the Bell & Ross Aero GT, the concept model is wholly developed by the French watchmaker, penned by its own creative director, Bruno Belamich.

“Following the success of our B-Rocket motorbike in 2014, I wanted to go even further and design the Bell & Ross car. The aim was to produce a car that can “hold its own” even amongst automotive professionals,” Belamich said.

Bell & Ross is a manufacturer of luxury watches with premium quality, let alone prestige, but it is how seriously they want to plunge into the world of supercars? It looks like they're serious, because it was released a supercar concept in cyberspace, and there is no other word to describe it other than "Wow!"

Bell & Ross hypothesis about the supercar concept has been exposed a little bit. With a length of 4.7 meters or slightly longer than the Nissan GT-R, the Aero GT Concept has the jet fighter style, like what Lamborghini does to the Reventon. The proof, there is in the super thin rearview like canard (we thought that's the HD cameras), dual exhaust like a jet engine and "shark fin" in the middle of the car can adjusted when the car is speeding.

By relying on the construction material made from carbon, carbon monocoque and aluminum on the whole body. Besides, Aero GT concept will carry a V8 engine that has a capacity of 4,200 cc (possibly uses twin turbo) to produce power up to 602 hp, paired with 8-speed dual clutch gearbox and RWD drive.

Aero GT Concept imagined could accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and has the ability to reach top speed in number 314 km/h. Remember, it's only the claims, because the car is still yet to be made.
If Bell & Ross managed to create and bring the Aero GT Concept to the real world, then this car will be a serious contender for the McLaren 650S, Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari 488 GTB, the Audi R8 V10 Plus and others. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOBLOG]
