It may seem like a strange time to be promoting six-figure supercars, but evidently somebody forgot to tell the organizers of the London Salon Privé. The exclusive supercar show is held every year at the Hurlingham Club, but this year's, despite the economic situation, is slated to be the biggest yet.
Headlining this year's salon will be the Veritas RS III, an exotic roadster made in Germany. Packing a choice of 480-horsepower V8 or 600-horsepower V10 sourced from BMW's elite M division, the RS III carries a price tag upwards of $375,000 and can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds en route to a top speed in excess of 200 mph while delivering the most unadulterated motoring experience known to man. Only 50 examples will be produced, and the first is making its world debut at the London show. Several new high-priced rides will also be on display for the first time in the UK, including the Morgan Aero Super Sport, Aston Martin One-77, Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S and Maybach Zeppelin. A day pass to the event will cost £125 when the show opens on July 22.
