Veritas, the creator of the truly bonkers RSIII supercar, has given CarAdvice a tour of its German headquarters today, and revealed exclusive first pictures of its forthcoming Coupe on a display screen.
While we’re not sure what it will be called when it enters production, the new two door takes clear styling direction from the RSIII.
While these pictures are still development images and don’t quite show the final product, they give a clear indication of the balance of the Coupe shape, and one thing’s for sure, it’s going to be a fantastic looking car.
Rather than using the BMW M5 V10 like the RSIII, the new coupe will use the engine from the X5M and X6M twins, meaning a twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 and well over 410kW with the modifications planned. For this to be achieved more frontal work has to be done to the car’s aerodynamics, as Veritas told us that “this engine needs a lot of cooling, much more than the V10.”
Given the roadster costs around EUR340,000, it’s a safe bet that the Coupe will come in at slightly more than that, given the extra carbon-fibre needed to create the bodywork.
Production is still a little while away, but CarAdvice will bring you a road test on the new Veritas Coupe in due course.
