THE MAYBACK EXELEROR- A FORGOTTEN PROTOTYPE
This €8 million dollar Mayback can still turns heads!
The Maybach Exelero is one of the most exclusive cars in the world with just one prototype commissed in 2005 by Fulda Tires with the purpose of testing the quality of its new range of high-performance tires, aptly titled Exelero.
Measuring 5,890 centimeters in length, This impressive 2.66-ton behemoth carries under its hood a 5.9-liter biturbo V12 engine , capable of developing 700 hp at 5,000 rpm and 1,020 Nm of maximum torque at 2,500 rpm, going from 0 to 100 km / h in only 4.4 seconds and reaching 351 km / h of maximum speed.
The Exelero’s design has echoes of the past with inspiration drawn from the cars of the 1930s and 1940s with a twentty first century twist. In terms of speed the Exelero takes 4.4 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour which given it’s weight of 2.6 tons is outrageous when you compare it to a Formula 1 car which takes two seconds but weighs less than a quarter of the weight of the Exelero.
Who owns the Exelero is a tricky tale apparently in 2009 Mercedes Daimler sold the Exelero to diamond industralist Andre Action Diakite Jacksonn for €5million then following a cameo role in Jay Z’s talking video for the spoken-song “Lost One” it was then purchased for an undisclosed sum by European Entrepreneur Arnaud Massartic before it was alledegeedly sold to rapper Birdman for €8 million in 2011 however this was later disputed by Massartic .
