These highly successful German sport/racing cars were based on rebuilt pre-war BMW 328s. The company was formed by three soldiers who, during the occupation of Paris, met and planned their ideal sports car for the post war era. Because the occupying forces would not allow the manufacture of proper engines, Veritas began acquiring old 328s and rebuilding them as the foundation of their own new automobiles. Their small factory was located in Hausern, Bavaria. Here they built slab-sided 2-seat roadsters intended for racing, like the one on display. Although the racing history of this example is unknown, similar cars participated in the Mille Miglia in period.
Veritas was a small German company formed after the end of World War II by 3 BMW employees who built racing and sports cars based on pre-war BMWs. They built about 75 cars before closing in 1952. The most successful Veritas was the Veritas-BMW Rennsport Spyder. Approximately 22 were built using chassis and the 2-liter 'Hemi' 6-cylinder engines of the late 30s BMW 328.
