The new V8 twin-turbo is expected to have an output of around 560 PS (412 kW / 552 bhp) as configured for the Veritas.

Veritas is working on a Coupe version of its RS III open top sports car that will come with a BMW-sourced V8 twin-turbo that will also be going into the next M5.

Replacing the outgoing 5.0 V10 from BMW, the new V8 twin-turbo is expected to have an output of around 560 PS (412 kW / 552 bhp).

In these screenshots taken by CarAdvice.com.au we can see the RS III styling influence along with significant design enhancements at the front and sides. Veritas told CarAdvice that "this engine needs a lot of cooling, much more than the V10." As a result the front end was designed to accommodate the aerodynamics needed.

Price for the Coupe model is expected to be around €400,000.

An RS III Hybrid is also in the works, as we have previously reported. That model will feature a total output of 650 PS (478 kW / 641 hp) by combining a gasoline engine and an electric motor.
