Veritas RS III goes into production

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Production of Vermont AG's much anticipated Veritas RS III Roadster will soon begin, with deliveries slated to begin in January 2010. Priced at 345,000 euros (about $515,000), each vehicle is handmade by 15 people and takes about eight weeks to complete.

Only three cars at a time will be built. The vehicle is a 1+1 seater, with a hidden second seat, and has no windshield.

From the website, Vermont AG stated: Whether manual or sequential transmission, whether racetrack or road, whether untamed or with the ABS switched on - the RS III surely creates an authentic, pristine race feeling.

Its low weight of 1,080kg (2,381lbs) comes about because the vehicle is made from a lightweight carbon fiber body and a tubular frame structure, fitted with a BMW naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V10 engine, Ohlins suspension, Recaro seats, MF upholstery and Dunlop tires.

The Veritas RS III Roadster is mated as standard with a 7-speed SMG transmission. A 6-speed manual is available as an option.

The vehicle is able to produce 507 hp at 7,750 rpm and 520 Nm of torque at 6,100 rpm, enabling it to reach a top speed of 216 mph (347 km/h), and go from 0 to 60mph in under 3.2 seconds.

The sports car is fitted with shiftable ABS and TCS, along with electronic shift pedals (start up only with clutch pedal). The Veritas RS III Roadster has a limited run of only 30 units, eight of which have already been sold to customers from Australia , Monaco and the UK.
