Working in what clearly is a backwards order, Veritas has let slip that they are working on a coupe version of their RS III with design inspiration following their drop top model. The first images of the future model were taken by CarAdvice as they strolled through the company’s German headquarters as part of a tour.

The only details that were provided for the coupe version are that it will not be powered by the RS III’s naturally aspirated 5.0 Liter V10 from the BMW M5, but will get its juice from the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine used in the X5M and X6M. According to Veritas "this engine needs a lot of cooling, much more than the V10." Once all of the necessary modifications have been made, including aerodynamics changes, this engine will be able to achieve over 550 HP, which is a far cry from the RS III’s 507 HP.

We’re expecting to see the other version of the RS III - the RS III Hybrid - much sooner than the new coupe planned. Both the Roadster and Hybrid are priced at or around $500,000, so we expect the more powerful coupe to get a price tag with a few more thousand dollars attached to it.

Uh oh. Judging from the comments here, Veritas doesn’t have a lasting impression on everyone. Perhaps the exterior is the only unchanging thing, though I agree there should be enhancement.

What is the funny thing when you heard that they will join a race? In my opinion, It is a good idea to for Veritas to join a race. On their latest version of sports car, the performance is impressive, what more with this one?

Well, I really don’t think that Veritas has an amazing look though it has an impressive speed. Actually, I was laughing hard when I heard that they will join the FIA GT1. Well, I don’t know on how will they modify the RS III into a racing car.

Well, since they have gotten all the info about this one tightly under wraps, they probably hiding one or two new features. We’ll just have to wait until they give us all the details.

:Looking at the picture above I could imagine that this future production would be the same with their previous model. I don’t get the point of making us thrill for we all know that this manufacturer never had a good design.

haha. I was thinking that the front grille would be different with their old model but still the body remains the same..However, when it comes to the performance of this car I think its kind of impressive. And last thing, heck! with that price I could actually buy a two Aventador!

I don’t know if I’m going to laugh to this car or what..I think they are being so ambitious for putting such high price tag. To be frank, I could actually buy the Aventador with that price and take note, it doesn’t have the same trouble with the engine.

hmm. It seems that Veritas has a sort of trouble on their engine. Well,
I suggest they should make a larger air intaker or intercooler to solve that problem. However,
with the price of half a million..that is such a high price tag.
