Veritas RS III: German Sportscar Equipped with 600Hp BMW M5 V10

Resurrecting the name of Germany’s first Formula 1 team, Veritas is a small company that was created by a group of international motor racing enthusiasts counting just seven people. Their newest project is the RS III that will be built in a strictly limited series of only 50 vehicles per year, with first deliveries expected to begin at the end of 2008.

The one-seater sport roadster is based on a monocoque frame while its body is made entirely from carbon-kevlar. Power comes from a supped up BMW M5 5.0-liter V10 engine that develops 600 Hp. Tipping the scale at 1,070 kg or 2,360 lbs, the RS III can go from zero to 100 km/h or 62 mph in just 3.2 sec and on to a top speed of 347 km/h or 216 mph. -Continued

The German company’s future plans also include a hardtop coupe version of the RS III that will be able to seat a passenger along with a GT variant, both of which will be introduced in late 2009
