The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance unique sports car. The 700 hp (522 kW) two-seater with a twin turbo V12 engine is a one-off design built on request for Fulda Tires. Fulda is using this car as a reference vehicle to test a new generation of wide tires. The German luxury car manufacturer created the one-off model as a modern interpretation of its legendary streamlined sportscar from the 1930s. There are various allusions to the historical predecessor, which was likewise based on a powerful Maybach automobile. In this case, the Maybach SW 38 was also used by Fulda for tire testing.
The car's first owner was André A. Jackson, who permitted Jay-Z to feature the car in the music video for "Lost One". The car changed hands to Arnaud Massartic, who sold the car to Birdman for US$8 million. The car is also famous for being portrayed in one of the episodes of long-running German show; Cobra 11
