German Supercar with Ferocious look

If those of you were first time heard the 'Veritas' auto brand, that indeed could be a little strange for ours today. But in fact, the brand was first owned by the German automotive company under the same name founded by 3 individuals who worked at BMW, ie  Ernst Loof, Georg Meier, and Lorenz Dietrich shortly after the 2nd World War was over (precisely 1947).

The company initially rebuilt and tuned the pre-war BMW 328 by using customer-supplied components, turning it into a BMW-Veritas car and
after only a few cars were made the brand become into Veritas, following an objection from BMW.  One of its car made named the Veritas SP90 Convertible in the 1949 to 1950 already discussed previously in one of our articles.

After a virtual disappearance from motor racing and automotive engineering for nearly 50 years, the Veritas brand would be revived through a small German company based in Grafschaft, Rhineland named Vermot AG. by making the limited numbers roofless supercars called the Veritas RS III since 2009.

This supercar is considered as the last incarnation of BMW racing cars in 1949, and reportedly has been distributed to customers since January 2010 at a price that is just fantastic which is about €345,000, or about Rp. 5.7 billion.

However, the relatively high price is still reasonable because in addition to made by hand made, the ferocious look supercar that was also produced in limited numbers i.e only 30 units with approximately 8 weeks processing time for one unit of the car.

Amazingly, supercar that has the long dimensions of 4.68 meters and wide of 2.02 meters, it turns out there are many of the world's wealthy people interested to have it. Supercar that has a 1+1 seat formation itself apart from having the grim look with tapered headlight design so as to form like a pair of creepy eyes coupled with the grille strange and unique shape.
Behind its ferocious looks, was also installed a V10 engine that has a capacity of 5.0 liter, the same engine used in the BMW M5 and M6, it capable of spraying maximum power up to 507 hp. Power is channeled to all wheels via a six-speed transmission system that make the 1,000 kg (2,204.62 lbs) supercar can drive up to 100 kph (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds and can glide with a maximum speed of 347 kph (215.62 mph).

HYBRID VERSION
Vermot AG also launched a hybrid version in 2011 that increased the supercar power, thanks to the application of 105 kW electric motor which mounted on both front wheels. With the addition of the electric motors, the total power which generated by this supercar engine was increased to 600 hp.

But its weighs also increased up to 500 kg (1,102.31 lbs) as a result of holding a lithium ion battery. Despite heavier now, Vermot AG claims that the supercar is capable of speeds up to 100 kph in just 3.1 seconds, down 0.1 seconds from the conventional version which recorded takes 3.2 seconds to reach the same speed.

But despite accelerates better, but the supercar top speed drops to 330 kph (205.05 mph) or 10 kph (6,21 mph) slower than the conventional version. The supercar's hybrid system is quite intelligent by applying the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) technology that is able to recharge the batteries in when the car is braking.

As quoted from Translogic on Wednesday, March 9, 2011, with only rely on the ability of the battery and the electric motor, the hybrid version of Veritas RS III Roadster is still able to driven up as far as 50 km (31,07 miles) on standard speed. *** [EKA(14012014) | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | VERMOT AG | CARSCOOP | TRANSLOGIC]
