Maybach Exelero $8M

Thursday, 8 August 20130 comments

While not a production car, the Maybach Exelero is the most expensive road-going car in the world. Initially commissioned by Fulda Tires in 2005, only one was ever made and has since been sold to rapper “Birdman.” Apparently he got high and bought a rather expensive set of wheels.
Top speed is reported to be 218 mph with a reported 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, courtesy of its twin-turbo V12 engine.

The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance unique sports car. It's the most expensive car with the price of about $8 million. The 700 hp (522 kW) two-seater with a twin turbo V12 engine is a one-off design built on request for Fulda Tires.

 Fulda is using this car as a reference vehicle to test a new generation of wide tyres. The German luxury car manufacturer created the one-off model as a modern interpretation of its legendary streamlined sportscar from the 1930s. There are various allusions to the historical predecessor, which was likewise based on a powerful Maybach automobile. In this case, the Maybach SW 38 was also used by Fulda for tyre testing.

 The car is also famous for being portrayed in one of the episodes of long-running German show; Cobra 11.
Jay-Z featured the car in the music video for "Lost One".
