Veritas Speedster on sale

The Veritas RSIII Speedster supercar goes on sale; 0-62mph in 3.2sec and 215mph+

The utterly nuts Veritas RSIII Speedster is now on sale.

Of course, your £300K could also go towards the new Lexus LFA if you like your supercars to boast a roof and full compliment of windows…
