Veritas RS III

The Veritas RS III is a modern edition of the sportscars produced by German car manufacturer Veritas in the 1950s. As its predecessors, the new Veritas RS III is powered by a choice of BMW-sourced engines – the 480-hp V8 or the 600-hp V10, adopted on the M models.

The modern Veritas first appeared as a concept, the RS3 presented in 2001, recently followed by additional details and prototype shots.

Now the project has come to its final stage: the RS III will be unveiled at the London Salon Privé – a supercar show that will take place from 22 to 24 July 2009. Veritas is planning a limited series of 50 units, with a base price of $375,000.

The main performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time under 4 seconds and a top speed over 200 mph.
