Veritas RS III Roadster to go into limited production
Vermont AG brings super car lovers welcome news with the announcement the RS III Roadster has finally gone into limited edition series production after teasing the public as a prototype for the last year.
Only a strict number of 30 will be available when the vehicle does begin deliveries in January 2010, although each must first undergo sophisticated hand-production by the small 15-employee team at Vermont AG in Gelsdorf.
The Veritas RS III Roadster is a 1 + 1 seater; the passenger seat is covered can be opened when required.
The unique design of the supercar combines futuristic elements with classical to produce an aggressive profile with typical shark's mouth, Xenon twin headlights, tapered inward-contoured side sills, flat tail with two central stainless steel tailpipes pointing upward, and an asymmetric roll bar integrated into the driver’s side bodywork.
Completing the picture is a rear-view mirror extending into the centre of the vehicle, riveted or chrome-plated bodywork elements, and distinctive jagged taillights.
The specs of the luxury car are as impressive as its design, boasting a V10 cylinder, 507 hp, and a top speed of 347 kilometres per hour.
As of the end of October, five RS III had already been sold to private buyers across the globe including those in Australia, Spain, Monaco, Switzerland, and the UK, while eight had been reserved.
It takes eight weeks to manufacture just one of the luxury vehicles, although three cars can be built at any one time.
The RS III is constructed of lightweight carbon fibre body and features a tubular frame structure, ceramic brakes, a sports suspension, while ESP and ABS brakes are available for more cautious drivers.
With such exceptional design, it will come as no surprise the Roadster has a price tag to match. Owners of the supercar are parting with €345,000 for the privilege.
