Veritas RS III Concept Car

The Veritas RS III is a super-sports car from Germany-based Vermot AG. Veritas was founded in 1948 and went on to successfully compete in German Championship races. In 1951 Veritas became the first German team to compete in a Formula 1 Grand Prix. Unfortunately, due to financial problems Veritas closed its doors in 1952. In 2001 the Veritas name was resurrected on the RS3 concept which first appeared as a BMW V12 powered car.

The Veritas RS III concept of 2008 is different from the 2001 car several areas. Firstly the new car has a choice of engine, either a 480 horsepower, 5.0 litre, BMW V8 mated to a manual transmission. Or a 600 horsepower BMW V10 with sequential transmission.

The V8 unit gives the Veritas RS III a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, the V10 model takes only 3.2 seconds to hit 60 mph. Top speeds are 204 mph and 215 mph respectively. All the power and performance is put down onto the road without the electronic driver aids found on most modern supercars - making the Veritas RS III a car dedicated to experienced driving enthusiasts.

The body of the Veritas RS III is formed from carbon Kevlar laid over a tubular framework chassis. This lightweight construction method helps to keep the weight around 1100 kgs.

To keep the handling pin-sharp the Veritas RS III uses independent Öhlins suspension. While the braking duties are taken care of by TRW Racing units with 6 piston calipers up front and 4 piston calipers at the rear.
