Veritas was an automobile company founded by Ernst Loof, Georg Meier and Lorenz Dietrich who initially re-built and tuned pre-war BMW 328 cars using components supplied by a customer, turning them into BMW-Veritas cars: basically every Veritas until 1950 was based on BMW chassis and engine.
The coachwork was then committed to Hermann Spohn, an historic coachwork shop founded in the early ’20’s which, after the WWII, was reborn after having found a connection with an american soldier who committed to them several cars based on american cars like the Buick LeSabre.
This particular car is called Saturn-Scorpion and, differently from the latter cars (with odd and huge rear fins) it has a clean design, typical of the late fourties. It seems like it was abandoned in a garage many, many years ago probably after a problem with the engine head which, indeed, is not with the car anymore. Apart from this and other parts missing from the engine bay, the car look almost complete. It is an ultra-rare and important car and maybe for such reason the asking price is huge. Find it for sale at $395,000 here in Ladenburg, Germany.
