The world-famous rapper Jay-Z also featured the vehicle in his music video entitled “Lost One.” The Maybach Exelero is a 700 high-performance sports car and it was created by the German luxury car manufacturer as a modern interpretation of a legendary sports automobile from back in the 1930s. It is a two-seater automobile with a twin-turbo V12 engine.

The Maybach Exelero is a custom model produced for Fulda Reifenwerke. They are using this magnificent automobile as a reference vehicle for future established generations of wide tires. There was special participation of students from Pforzheim College who worked with the developers of Maybach who were assigned to design a custom model. The prototype specialists from Stola in Turin (Italy) built the Exelero and there are no plans to produce the model in series.
The Maybach Exelero definitely earns the title of being the most costly car because it is a vehicle that combines both first-class quality and elegance.
