Maybach Excelero news - Bach to the future - 2008

Read more on:

This is the kind of car a child with a
crayon would come up with.

It’s a huge beast of a thing based on the
Maybach 57, that’s powered by a turbocharged 700hp V12, and has reached 218mph
in testing.

The idea for it came up in 2005, when tyre
manufacturer Fulda got in touch with the then recently revived Maybach company
with a project in mind.

Fulda wanted a car to test their most
extreme high-performance tyre - also called the Excelero - that was heavy,
luxury and fast, so Maybach seemed like the perfect place to go as they used to
team up in the old days.

You may be wondering why we’re writing
about it again now. Well, that’s because if you’ve got £4million burning a hole
in your pocket, you can buy it. 

It’s a true one off in the best sense of
the phrase.

Expect to see
the Excelero in Jay Leno’s garage sometime soon.
