Veritas RS III making its debut at London’s Salon Prive Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Salon Prive, the UK's most individual supercar show is not minding the current global economic problem as it plans its largest and best event for this year.

The event, which is in its fourth year already, will be held at the Hurlingham Club in London, where guests will have the opportunity to mix with the most current supercars and a horde of hard to resist vintage models.

The new models that will be debuting in the UK will include the Maserati Quattroporte GT S, Maybach Zepellin Edition and Morgan Aero SuperSports. On display in the UK for the very first time, and will certainly command attention, is the 1.2 million pound Aston Martin One-77.

Another car, a revival of a German sports car of the 40s, the Veritas RS III, a futuristic speedster will also be introduced in the event. The sports car, which comes with a price tag of 250,000 pounds, tips the scales at 1,170kg due to its broad use of carbon fiber and the lack of a roof or a windshield. Powerplant choices consist of the BMW M3's 4.0-liter V8 which was tuned to the power of 473hp or a variant of the V10 from the M5 which produces 593bhp.

Other brands will also exhibit their most current and the best products, such as Jaguar, Lotus and Rolls Royce, as well as Pagani, Koenigsegg and Spyker. Quite a few other rare and out of this world vintage vehicles will also be shown in the Concours d'Elegance, like the multi-million pound Bugatti Type46.

Derek Bell, 5-time winner of the Le Mans 24hr, Marek Reichman, the director of design for Aston martin and Robert Coucher, editor of Octane magazine will be the panel of judges who will pick the winners.
