Maybach Excelero sold for $8 million! image

Rapper Birdman, also known as Bryan Williams, has reportedly spent $8,000,000 on the one-off Maybach Exelero coupe.

The car combines the elegance and first-class quality of a high-end limousine with the powerful suppleness of a sports coupe. It was born as a high-profile demonstrator commissioned by Fulda for its series tire line – 315/25 ZR 23, licensed for speeds of more than 350 km/h (217 mph).

Based on the Maybach 57 and powered by a 700-horsepower version of that car’s turbocharged V12, the Exelero reached 218 mph at Nardo. In many ways, Exelero represents what Maybach could have and should have been — a place where daring styling and incredible performance could merge with extreme luxury to compete with Rolls-Royce and Bentley.
