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

The FIA GT1 World Championship just kicked off its inaugural season since its organizing body, SRO, split the former FIA GT Championship into separate series for the GT1 and GT2 classes. Already, manufacturers are lining up to participate.

At the opening round of the new series, six different vehicles were on the grid, including the Nissan GT-R, Corvette C6.R, Lamborghini Murcielago R-SV, Matech Ford GT, Aston Martin DBR9 and Maserati MC12. But if the latest reports become reality, that impressive lineup could see a new challenger from a decidedly more niche manufacturer.

According to some reports, Veritas is preparing a fixed-roof GT1-spec version of its RS III supercar – complete with BMW-sourced V10 – for participation in the series. The reports emanate from the Top Marques show in Monaco, where the automaker reportedly indicated its racing ambitions. If Veritas gets its act together on time, they could be joining the series mid-season as soon as the Nurburgring round this coming July.

      Such a confusing car to look at.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Not confusing at all:

        it's a young, really angry Maserati.

      I would like it if it was more symmetrical and had a roof

      A big hairy winning machine.

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One the bright side we all get to see what this car can really do on the race track.

      this car is pure evil. and i want it. in black of course.

      Wow! That thing is stunning. Too bad about the name-it just does not do it any justice. When I dream about nasty cars doing nasty things, this is what they look like. This thing will scare women, children, and maybe a few of those Honda fan boys in their beat up Civics with the farty sounding mufflers.

      Call me crazy but I love that car. It looks so sinister, liked it just hatched an evil plan.

      Now with a BMW V10 and a roof? Hell, make it my daily driver!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah, that is some serious sinister in the face. Very cool.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Its so sinister when I looked at the photo's I think it ate my roommate!
        Car just looks evil and I pray that was the intent of the designers.

        Love these pics... but I will admit I'm not a fan of the wheels, design and the chrome finish.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Looks like what the DeathRace 2000 car would have become.
