To debut at the 2009 Salon Prive, the Veritas RS III eschews a roof and windshield for pure speed (the passenger seat also seals up); it’ll go 0-60 in 3.2s with a 600hp BMW 5.0L V10.

Dartz Kombat T98

Dartz Kombat T98

The Dartz Kombat T98 looks like a Hummer, but we doubt your H2 packs RPG-proof doors and windows; it can also haul overly well-fed Russian oil barons with its 8.1L Vortec V8.

Matte Black Audi A5

Matte Black Audi A5

With an extra 40 hp and 72 lb-ft of torque, this Audi A5 by AVUS is modestly tuned, but its sweet matte color scheme steals the show; it’s actually a foil wrap that plays wicked with the light.
