After a virtual disappearance from motor racing and automotive engineering for nearly 50 years, a small company known as Vermot AG plans on "resurrecting" the Veritas name on a planned model known as the RS III.
In 2001, a concept known as the Veritas RS3 was shown. With some design cues taken from boats, in which Vermot explored the market at one time, it was well received. It used a BMW sourced 6.0 liter V-12, producing 670 horsepower (500 kW). In 2008, it was announced that Vermot AG was to take serious efforts towards producing the RS III.
Production and testing began in early 2008, with the RS III spotted testing on tracks in May 2008, and Vermot AG has released a general release date for the end of 2008. It runs on a BMW sourced 5.0 liter V-10 that generates 600 horsepower (450 kW). Weight will be kept down to 2,360 pounds due to the extensive use of light materials, and performance figures of 0–60 in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 216 miles per hour (348 km/h)
In 2009, at London's Salon Privé, Veritas RS III Roadster super sports car won the "Best Super Car 2009" award. Strictly limited hand production of only 30 vehicles started by Vermot in Gelsdorf.
