In 2001, a concept known as the Veritas RS3 was shown.[4] 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).

Richard Hammond drives the new Veritas, the car that looks less embarrassing than the Caterham. Includes The Stig’s speed lap in full.
