5 Million Euros Worth Car

Yours for only $7.8 million, want one, oops, actually there is only one. Apparently some dealership in Austria had one built on order but never sold it. Well now they are trying to sell the car and are asking for 5,000,000 Euros ($7,848,492). If you have an extra 7.8 millions and want that kind of exclusivity don’t wait any longer.

Paying for replacement windows in this car would probably cost as much as buying a used and fairly inexpensive car.

A one-off custom-built Maybach was unveiled in May 2005 at the Tempodrom in Berlin. Commissioned by tire company Fulda, the Exelero is a chopped-down two-seater coupe, though it’s more than just a show car – in tests at the Nardo high-speed oval, the prototype reached a speed of 218.38mph, despite weighing over 2.66 tones. It is capable of acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds.

The car’s design was the result of a competition amongst 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, and his work was coordinated with that of the Maybach design centre in Sindelfingen. The project, based on the Maybach 57 limousine, required a certain amount of re-engineering; the A-pillar and doors had to be shifted rearwards, and the steering column, pedals and gearshift all re-located. The standard 550bhp V12 engine was bored out to 5.9 liters, and tuned for 700bhp and over 738lb ft of torque. With final dimensions of 5890mm long, 2140mm wide and just 1390mm high, the car was kitted out with a full-spec interior, including leather, neoprene, aluminum and carbonfibre finishes.

Maybach says the car, built by Stola in Turin, is “a one-off vehicle created to showcase the new ultra-high performance Exelero tire range from leading tire manufacturer Fulda”; it’s not the first time the two companies have teamed up, as back in 1938 Fulda demonstrated its tires on a Maybach SW 38 limousine. There are, however, “no plans to produce the model in series”, though it has been certified for on-road use.

    The Maybach Exelero price of 8 million is not an MSRP (Manufacture’s suggested retail price) like the one you see on your local dealer. It is a concept car made in collaboration with Fulda tires in order to research new tire designs and promote the brand. Being a concept car, not a production car, every component of the car is unique to it -explaining the 8 Million price (not including R & D). In addition, Jay Z does not own it. Why? Only one was built. It has stayed with Maybach.

    like most cars like porshe and expensive shit are all great but the majority of the price tag comes from the name not the performance and features

    Are you saying that people pay $8,000,000 for a car just because its name is “Maybach Exelero” rather than “Smart Fortwo”? Damn, those idiots. I have a 2006 Mercedes SL500, and when I went to the dealership for it, I saw the neverending load of amenities and 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, not at ALL for the “Mercedes” badge.

    Hey youmils03

    hey, people who spend that kind of money on a car dont care about that man. theyve got loads of money anyway. the price they pay is probably just a fraction of their entire fortune

    I want the car with a regular engine and transmission. Maybe that will bring the price down. I love the inside and the rear of the car, but the front is too long.
