The $8 Million Dollar Car: Maybach Exelero

Posted in Expensive Cars, Maybach by Vito Rispo | September 11th, 2008 | 2 Responses |

The Maybach Exelero is a one-off high-performance sports car designed and built by German luxury car manufacturer Maybach, and presented in May 2005 in Berlin, Germany. The Exelero is a chopped-down two-seater coupe with a bored out 5.9 liter V12 engine that puts out 700 hp and over 738lb ft of torque. Despite its 5,864 pounds, it can get up over 218mph and can go from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds.

The car’s design was the result of a competition among students at the Pforzheim Polytechnic Department of Transport Design, which has worked on show vehicles for Fulda in the past. The design of 24-year-old Fredrik Burchhardt was chosen. That’s got to be pretty cool to have your student project design get made into an $8 million dollar car.

    Haha 2660lbs + 700hp would be a hell of alot faster than 4.4 0-60 I would think. I believe what you meant is 2660kgs.
