The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance sports car designed and built by luxury car manufacturer Maybach, and was unveiled in May 2005 at the Tempodrom in Berlin, Germany.

The 700 hp two-seater with a bi-turbo V12 engine is a one-off design commissioned by Fulda to act as a high-profile demonstrator for its tire line.

It’s more than just a show car though – in tests at the Nardo high-speed oval, the prototype reached a speed of 218.38mph, despite weighing over 2.66 tonnes. It is capable of acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds.

The car’s design was the result of a competition amongst students at the Pforzheim Polytechnic Department of Transport Design, which has worked on show vehicles for Fulda in the past.

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, and was also used by Fulda for tire testing.

There are, however, “no plans to produce the model in series”, though it has been certified for on-road use and now, they are trying to sell the car and are asking for 5,000,000 Euros ($7,800,000).(Source)
