Veritas RS III – Click above for a high-res image gallery

You remember the Veritas RS III? The open-cockpit supercar is a revival of the 40's-era BMW racing team, spearheaded by a crew of enthusiasts dedicated to making the most visceral, back-to-basics driving machine known to man. With a choice of two BMW M-sourced powertrains – 480hp V8 or 600hp V10 – the Veritas hits 60 mph from a standstill in the three-second range en route to a top speed over 200 mph with either engine and no electronic aids. With a list price starting around $375,000, only 50 examples will be produced, and the first one has finally arrived. After initially spotting a prototype at the Nürburgring, followed by details a year ago and more details last summer, the blitzschnell supercar is finally ready for its close-up and it's set to take place in London this July.

Alongside several UK debuts, the Veritas RS III will be headlining this year's London Salon Privé, an exclusive supercar show at the Hurlingham country club. Other noteworthy dream cars on the docket include the Morgan Aero Super Sport and Aston Martin One-77, two British supercars making their UK debuts. Aston will also roll out its V12 Vantage and DBS Volante for the home crowd, while the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S and Maybach Zeppelin will be on hand for the first time in the UK as well. The show takes place from July 22-24, with tickets starting at a staggering £125 for a one-day entrance pass. Think that's a little steep? Then check out the updated image gallery below for a closer look. It's free.

        "It can actually be easily converted to being a 2-seater by the removal and swap out of a few panels. Watch the Top Gear review of this car."

        Ah, that would be the one where the Veritas gets completely trashed by a Caterham 7 superlight?

      A 350,000 dollar car should do a few things.
      1. Handle like a race car.
      2. Get to 60 in the low 3 second range
      3. Go faster than 200mph
      4. most importantly, get you laid by women that would otherwise never give you a second look.

      This car fails miserably at number 4, i have no interest in a car that doesn't hold at least 1 passenger. Even if you got a chick's attention in this car, what are you going to do to get her home? Give her money for a taxi or have her take the bus?

        She'd be driving her own car, of course.

        if you need $350.000 to score then maybe you should invest in plastic surgery.

      This car has a passenger seat. What it does lack, however, is a proper windshield or removable/convertible top. While I suppose one could consult the weather report, there's very little one could do to keep the bugs and road grime off the face and body (unless you're supposed to wear a full-face helmet when operating, which is stupid). There are so many more interesting and minimally practical cars available at that price, and you won't have to wear a set of steam-punk goggles to drive them.

      A car for someone who otherwise loves catfish.

      There was something like this back in 2000, but the company was too small to take the project to the finish line... Anyone who knows more about that?

      I just figured out what this reminds me of: the Devin SS.

      "I want my Caterham back, I want my fun back."

      That pretty much sums up how great of a car this is.
