Did you think the Maybach 62 S was ridiculous? The high-performance stretched limousine has nothing on its one-of-a-kind brother, the Maybach Exelero. Based on the already-big-for-a-sedan Maybach 57, the gargantuan coupe was created for German tire maker Fulda as a high-speed test bed (and, we suspect, a bit of a publicity stunt...and a successful one at that).

This video tells the story of Fulda's historic collaboration with the stoic luxury brand – a partnership which was rekindled after DaimlerChrysler recently revived Maybach – and shows us some footage of the gargantuan Exelero undergoing high-speed testing at the Nardo track. After all, this may have been a show car, but it was built to go fast and push its rubber to the limit.

      For the purpose Fulda and Mayback had, perfect! If it were to be built, they could cut down the 57 chassis 6 inches or so, and make other changes, and still have a stunner. _____If the Phantom sales success in comparison to the old lady Maybach sedans tell us anything, its "OVER THE TOP IS THE WAY TO GO!"

      i heard somewhere that, in a way, all Maybachs are "one-offs", and in theory, they could build this car for you.

      The Exelero is one of those impractical and outstanding concepts like the Cadillac Sixteen. It's just a shame that Maybach is just rolling out sleepy saloons. One thing about the Exelero: Sports Car International claims its MSRP would top $2,000,000 if it were produced for the public.

      Bold, Masterful lines, Heroic design, Domination of the Senses that's what this car is about!

      Nobody is saying this video is new, just that it's interesting.

      For some reason every time I read "Exelero" my brain interprets it as "Canyonero".....this is either good or bad depending on your point of view I guess.

      Gargantuan! I just love that word :) Well, it certainly is the perfect word to describe the Maybach Exelero. It does look a lot like the batmobile. I know I'd like to have one. It's just too cool for words.
