EXCLUSIV: Maybach Exelero Showcar reaches 218.38 mph @ Nardo! 700-hp two-seater with a V-12 biturbo!

Stuttgart/Berlin - The Maybach high-performance show car "Exelero" was unveiled to the world for the first time this afternoon in the Tempodrom in Berlin. The 700-hp two-seater with a V-12 biturbo engine is a unique custom model produced for Fulda Reifenwerke, which is using the Maybach Exelero as a reference vehicle for a newly developed generation of wide tyres. The German manufacturer of luxury cars built the unique model as a modern interpretation of its legendary streamlined sports car from the 1930s, thereby forging a link with the historical predecessor, which at that time was likewise based on a powerful Maybach automobile (SW 38) and used by Fulda for tyre tests.

They used the new Fulda Carat Exelero 315/25 ZR23 for the record in Nardo. That's about a 29" diameter tire and should also fit on the M-class.


Here's some development history for this tire:
