Equipped with a twin-turbo 5.9 liter V12 engine, it is capable of generating over 700 HP. That, is real power. The design of the car itself is special. Among those who saw the car itself, the rave was that it either looked like the old Batmobile, sans the fish-tail or the Green Hornets ride from the late 60’s, Black Beauty.
The only original Maybach component is the front grille. The interior is made in black and red leather in addition to the carbon fiber that make up the rest of the inside. This car has only two seats, so it is safe to call it a sports car, though it looks nothing like it.
This car is unique. The Exelero was hand built and comes with a price tag of $8,000,000. Yes, that is an eight followed by six zeroes. It does discourage any attempt to obtain such an opulent vehicle. Regardless, the Maybach Exelero is a super car with monster power. For that money you can build several supercars on your own.
