Veritas RS III Roadster enters production, only 30 will be made, photo gallery included | Rpmgo.com



The ridiculous, and I mean that in a good way, Veritas RS III Roadster has just entered production, its manufacturer, Vermot AG, has announced yesterday. The supercar, powered by BMW’s massive 5-liter V10 engine, will see only 30 models made, each with a price tag of €345,000 or around $514,000.

The carmaker has already revealed that eight orders have been made, from places like Australia, Monaco or the UK, and deliveries will start on January 2010, as it will take the 15 employees eight weeks to complete just a single car, with three models being made at a time.

Vermot has used only the best types of technologies available in the construction of the Veritas RS III Roadster, with its carbon fiber body featuring a tubular frame structure, ceramic brakes and a sport suspension, to keep it on the road. This means that the entire weight of the car, driver not included, tips the scale at 1,080 kg (2,381 lbs). It has been extensively testing on the Nurburgring to offer drivers the best racing feel of any car out there, but will also feature safety systems like ESP or ABS.

The engine, as I’ve said, will be the massive 5-liter V10 which is currently on the BMW M5, offering 507 HP (373 kW) with a torque of 520 Nm. Coupled with the 7-speed SMG transmission, or with an optional 6-speed manual one, it will take the RS III Roadster from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, and up to a speed of 347 km/h (216 mph).
