The Veritas RS III. What is it exactly? It could be either a mechanical catfish art car from Burning Man or a giant mockup of a prostitute’s shoe. Or possibly just another misguided design exercise from some over-eager disciples of the Bangle Design University for Destroying Beauty. We’ll leave the taxonomic designation to the experts.
What we can say is that it is ugly as sin and packs the M5’s 600 HP V10. Oh, and it weights about the same as an old Mazda Miata. And there is no traction control, stability control, impulse control, or bladder control. Pretty much, if you drive it you’ll die. Cool!
For those who don’t know, Veritas was originally an excuse for some BMW engineers to go racing after WWII with BMW’s legendary pre-war 328 engine. Success and road cars followed. Then they disappeared as the money dried up, around 1952. Resurrected by a modern company, Vermot AG, the new Veritas is on a mission to … well, produce a strange one-off impractical sports car? Look ugly and go really fast? Not have room to put a beautiful man, woman, or bottle of champagne beside you? Have no weather protection?
Oh, and it’s a steal at $375,000. Hurry before they sell out!
