After being presented to the public as a prototype and winning the public award of "Best Super Car 2009" at London's Salon Privé, Veritas announced that its RS III Roadster super sports car would go into series production. The series comprises a strictly limited batch of only 30 vehicles, and every single vehicle will undergo sophisticated hand production by manufacturer Vermot AG in Gelsdorf.

Even before the actual start of production, five of the 30 luxury cars have already been sold - to Monaco, Australia, Great Britain, Spain and Switzerland. Eight more are reserved and over 100 enquiries have been received. In Gelsdorf, it is therefore expected that the entire edition will have sold out even before the end of the year.

The manufacturer's 15 staff install the chassis, bodywork and interior at three workstations. The production of one of the classic 1+1-seaters - with a covered passenger seat that can be opened if required - takes eight weeks, although three cars are built in parallel at one time. Production runs according to the strictest "Made in Germany" quality standards. Furthermore, the vehicles are fully homologated to EU standard. Delivery to the customers will start in January 2010.

"Even at first sight, the Veritas RS III convinces customers with a design that combines futuristic and classical elements and thereby produces an unmistakable overall impression," says Vermot AG chief designer Michael Söhngen. "In the end, what counts for the design of a good sports car are the proportions and we have placed great emphasis on these," Söhngen continues. The typical shark's mouth and aggressive looking Xenon twin headlights, tapered inward-contoured side sills, and the flat tail with the two central stainless steel tailpipes pointing upward contrast with the asymmetric roll bar integrated into the bodywork on the driver's side. A rear-view mirror extending into the centre of the vehicle, riveted or chrome-plated bodywork elements, and the distinctive jagged taillights emphasise the exceptional design concept.

The Dunlop tyres - 325/25 at the rear and 255/30 at the front - and the 12.5 and 10.5 inch wide, 22-inch, five-point star, drop centre rims - as well as the extremely low vehicle height of only 97 cm - ensure a firm hold on the road. All this comes with a height-adjustable special sports chassis tested on the north loop of the Nürburgring, as lovers of this untamed bolide generally appreciate that "true race feeling". Slightly more cautious drivers can, however, engage ABS and TCS.

The technical specifications are a testament to the high demands. The new Veritas, of which the legendary predecessors celebrated numerous racing successes in the 50s and were the first German team to take part in Formula I, now accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in under 3.2 seconds - this alone will make the hearts of automobile enthusiasts beat faster.

The 4.68 metre long and 2.02 metre wide monster, which has already made a splash in Monte Carlo, in Spa, and on the "ring" is powered by a 5.0 litre V10 BMW engine with 7-speed SMG transmission or - optionally - with manual 6- speed transmission. With an engine speed of 7,500 rpm and a power-weight ratio of 2.9 kg/kW, the RS III achieves a top performance of 373 kW (507 hp) and thus a top speed of 347 km/h.

The complete bodywork comprises an ultra-light carbon racing skin and is produced in a Formula I forge. In addition to the 4-point H-type seatbelts, a tube frame developed by the Vermot AG engineers guarantees occupants the highest level of passive safety on their modified Recaro full bucket seats. A new braking system from Brabham Racing provides for deceleration: six 380 mm pistons at the front and four 355 mm pistons at the back forcefully slow the entire weight before the ceramic disk brakes abruptly bring the wheels to a standstill - until the next kick start.

Extensive test drives were conducted a few days ago at the legendary Brands Hatch racetrack in Great Britain. "It is now about constantly improving the car and finding the optimum fine tuning. Brands Hatch was a complete success and we are very happy with the result," says Vermot AG CEO Michael Trick. Initial customer test drives have also been conducted in the context of the track days - an illustrious rendezvous of customers and potential buyers, who have met on the racetrack in England and showed themselves to be thoroughly impressed.
