Bell & Ross Aero GT
Half “gran turismo”-concept Car
Bell & Ross Aero GT was inspired by “gran turismo” from Italy. The kind of roadsters was produced in Pasolini, Italy in the 1950s. As for Ferrari 250 GTO, it was limited to 36 pieces in the 1960s.

Half Aero-concept Car
Jet-inspired Bell&Ross Aero GT shows its relationship with the aviation. The 4.7 meter-long roadster with super-low chassis was injected into Aerodynamic Principles, sweeping and angular, like an invisible warplane. Look down, and its glass roof looks like the cover of jets’ cockpits, and the thin rearview mirrors were inspired by small airfoils. Two oversized exhaust pipes were inspired by jets’. The most impressing is the rear longitudinal aileron whose design comes from a jet’s aileron. It will play an important role when it takes a sharp turn. Bell & Ross fused aeronautic elements into Aero GT.
