French watchmaker Bell & Ross has unveiled its new AeroGT concept. Developed by Bell & Ross creative director Bruno Belamich, the model is billed as a modern supercar that draws inspiration from aviation as well as the grand tourers of the 1950s.

French watchmaker Bell & Ross has unveiled its new AeroGT concept.

Developed by Bell & Ross creative director Bruno Belamich, the model is billed as a modern supercar that draws inspiration from aviation as well as the grand tourers of the 1950s.  The company didn't have much to say about the car but noted its "sharp angles and cutting overhangs are reminiscent of some stealth airplanes."

The AeroGT has also been equipped with slender LED headlights, an aircraft-inspired canopy, and rearview cameras that are mounted on wing-inspired structures which are meant to resemble canards.  A closer inspection also reveals turbine-style wheels and a unique rear end with massive exhaust tips that are designed to evoke turbojet engine exhausts.  Last but not least, the AeroGT has a rear vertical fin which is reminiscent of an aircraft’s vertical stabilizer.

Since the AeroGT is simply a design project, the company declined to release performance specifications.  However, Bell & Ross said the model was designed to "hold its own" even when pitted against more traditional competitors.

Since Bell & Ross is a watch company, it comes as little surprise that the AeroGT has inspired two new watches called the BR 03-92 AeroGT and the BR 03-94 AeroGT.  Both feature a satin-polished steel case, a black calfskin strap, and a stylish face with exposed internals.
