Maybach Exelero sold for $8 million - report

 Maybach Exelero sold for $8 million - report
Maybach Exelero Concept

Bought by the Birdman

Sure, you can buy a Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe for a million dollars (€675,000) but why bother when you can have the real thing for just $7 million (€4,721,200) more?

According to recent reports, the Birdman (aka rapper Bryan Williams) plopped down a hefty wad of cash to purchase a Maybach Exelero coupe.  We weren't aware any were for sale, but the original show car was handed over to German tire company Fulda Reifenwerke and we haven't heard much about it since then.

As we have previously reported, the Exelero features a 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine that produces 691 hp (515 kW / 700 PS) and 1,020 Nm (752 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 218 mph (351 km/h).

Cadillac lacked the financial resources to make the Sixteen which I believe was inspired by Bugatti Veyron 16.4 contemporarily. It could have put Cadillac on the globe again and their prestige profile could have been much higher than present. In my humble opinion, an opportunity lost.

You could have a custom car maker like Chop Foose make a car like this, which looks much better, for much much less. Madness.

For $8 million, Cadillac would've sold him the Sixteen, which in my opinion is a billion times better, sexier and the interior doesnt look cheesy.

Interior is totally at odds with flamboyant exterior. This was the Concept car that could have defined Maybach! Now it's a joke.

This car looks so cheaply done. Roadside tuners have a similar design air in my country.

Yes, the "stock" interior isn't so spectacular but him being him - he'll most likely have it revised if he doesn't fancy it. More money yes, but apparently he can afford it.

As far as I recollect - there are more than one, despite the popular claim that there was only one produced.

This is probably the kind of car rich people might buy before the Bugatti Veyron appeared. Btw if Dracula was alive this would be the car he drives !!
