Bell & Ross has returned to its passion for engineering, creating its retro-influenced Bellytanker racecar, with missile-like aerodynamics. It is built using a fuel tank from a fighter plane. Fitted with an engine and four wheels, this tank is transformed into a streamlined racer. The Bellytanker is best known for taking part in speed trials on the huge salt lake flats of the North American West. These gigantic open stretches of desert, where most of the water has evaporated, are particularly well suited to motor racing competitions. The Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah are the most famous example.

Bill Burke went on to develop vehicles based on tanks from a lighter plane, the Lockheed P-38 fighter. Bell & Ross has designed its own vehicle, taking these later versions of the Bellytanker as its inspiration. Being part of a plane on wheels, this new vehicle is perfectly aligned with the spirit of the watch brand, which has aviation and the military in its DNA. This retro-futuristic racer is the latest in a line of extreme machines developed by the firm. It combines both aeronautical influences and numerous nods to the watchmaking world. So, the metal of its bodywork is like the case of a watch. The glass covering its cockpit echoes an ultra-curved crystal. The copper-cultured trim evokes the dials of timepieces from this era. Its tail fin, designed to stabilize the vehicle, is a reference to the aviation codes, as is the matte black of its “nose”. This color is used on certain stealth fighters to avoid reflections.

Bell & Ross loves to take its passion for extreme machines to the limits. Its new Bellytanker car naturally continues the line of vehicles that precede it: the B-Rocket motorbike and the Aero GT supercar. Comprised of two timepieces, the new Bellytanker collection adopts the round case of the Vintage model, whilst remaining resolutely modern. It is designed to evoke the legendary era of record-breaking races in the North America of the fifties. Participants sped across the salt lakes, most notably at Bonneville, in their super-fast homemade hot rods. This collection is aimed at contemporary and enthusiastic drivers, with a love for vintage.
