2008 Veritas RS III Prototype

From 1951, the ‘Veritas-Nürburgring’ is made in the pits of the Nürburgring racetrack. In the same year, the unparalleled development of the racing team iscrowned by the participation of a Veritas Meteor in the Swiss Formula 1 Grand Prix: Which makes the Veritas the first German Formula 1 racing car ever. Even today, the fascination exercised by this legendary racing car is as powerful as ever.

With the RS III, Veritas is launching the next generation – the continuation of a success story that simultaneously heralds the beginning of a new era.

The Veritas RS III, the modern version of the first German Formula 1 racing car, leaves you in no doubt about its heritage thanks to its impressive design, perfect engineering and incomparable responses.

After all, the 600 PS of the V10* engine need to be mastered – without the invisible help of today’s otherwise omnipresent electronic aids, such as anti-skid brakes, traction control and power brakes.

The Veritas RS III recreates the pure feeling and fascination of an authentic racing car: true race feeling.
