German company Vermot AG has released the first example of their Veritas RS III model, an open cockpit supercar that pays homage to 1940’s BMW racing. The aim of the Veritas was to provide the truest, least diluted driving experience possible. To do so, the designers kept weight to a minimum through the use of carbon fiber and Kevlar body panels and accommodations for the driver only. Power comes from a choice of two BMW M-sourced powertrains- either a 480 horsepower V8 or a 600 horsepower V10. The relatively low curb weight paired with the powerful, high-revving engines makes for impressive performance numbers: 60 mph comes in three seconds flat and top speed breaches the 200 mph mark. The Veritas is expected to retail for about $375,000, with only 50 cars planned for production. Keep an eye out for its official debut on July 22nd at this year’s London Salon Prive.
