Bell & Ross BR-Bird to race at Reno?

This is the gorgeous, sensational BR-Bird, a single-seater powered by a V12 Rolls-Royce Falcon engine, and constructed from high-tech materials such as graphite, fibreglass, titanium and aluminum alloy.

It’s the brainchild of Bruno Belamich, co-founder and creative director of watch company Bell & Ross, though clearly with some inspiration from the famous Bugatti 100P. The intention is to race the BR-Bird at the annual Reno Air Races in Nevada, USA.

Bell & Ross are no strangers to building race vehicles having been behind the B-Rocket, AeroGT and Bellytanker.

Not surprisingly, Bell & Ross is also launching two new Racing Bird watches to go with the aircraft.

  1. Fine to design a car or a motorcycle as you can almost always stop if something is going wrong … designing a plane is another story … sounds like a marketing campaign with nothing behind… No flyers or teams make money at the Reno races.

  2. Nice/interesting looking bird but sadly lacking in visibility is my only real negative. Well, It should also have a Radial engine.
