Maybach Exelero Concept Review


Pint-Sized Luxury Car

In short: A super-luxurious, super-fast coupe.

The Maybach Exelero is a one-off concept vehicle that showcases parent company Mercedes-Benz's ultimate high-performance technology in a stunning design. Based on the colossal Maybach super-luxury sedans, this coupe cost $8 million to build and looks like something driven by a superhero — and it has an engine to match. The twin-turbocharged V12 makes a staggering 700 horsepower and 753 pounds-feet of torque, which takes this 5,863-pound monster coupe from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. As a Maybach, it is also beautifully detailed inside with impeccable leather, wood and racing seats.
