Cooperation between Luxury Car Brand and Tire Goes Back Sixty-Six

Advertisements and specialty vehicles go in hand, particularly in the automotive Countless companies use specialty to portray new products, which resulted in some of the most and far-out cars on earth. Reifenwerk, the German subsidiary of the tire company, may have topped the world’s best a one-off 700-horsepower Maybach Coupe, specifically designed to attention to its new Exelero, super-wide tire.

Of all the different carmakers could have worked it chose Germany’s ultimate brand Maybach. The connection the two firms dates back to the when the duo challenged Auto (one of the firms that together to form Audi) and for a crack at breaking the 200 km/h on Germany’s autobahns. In 1938, commissioned the Maybach SW 38, a streamlined coupe based off the

Zeppelin chassis to perform tests for its tires. Powered by a 3.6-litre six-cylinder engine, the SW 38 was of surpassing 200 km/h (124 pushing the performance envelope then, at least).

In 2005, by more than sixty-six the Maybach and Fulda team are together, thanks to the reincarnation of the brand name by DaimlerChrysler AG. like the SW 38, the Exelero was built as a machine, although this Fulda commissioned the vehicle to speeds of above 350 km/h mph)!

While it’s that the underlying achievement for the was to exceed its target speed, were other goals

both firms agreed The two companies wanted a limousine paid homage to the original in of styling and image. The job of styling the car to Pforzheim Polytechnical’s Design which came up several designs. The shape of the finished is a combination of four separate which include elements as the split rear window of the Corvette Stingray, to the rear of a speedboat. The main pieces of however, were the original speed machines.

Compared to the Maybach 57 and 62, the luxury current production models, the new is of a completely different design The car is based around the shorter of the two the 5.7 metre long 57, which gives it a gigantic footprint. more, it is slightly longer the 57 at 5,850 mm (230.3 inches), wider at 2,140 mm (84.25 yet has an identical wheelbase of 3,390 mm inches). The only measurement comes up short on the Exelero is at just 1,390 mm (54.7 tall. Nevertheless, the Exelero seems as large as it actually is, to a well-proportioned body which a long hood and a swept cockpit.

With this concept, hopes to shake the recently reputation of being an S-Class and restore the

glory and prestige of its years. A new nose, complete a massive, chrome-clad grille, fenders and swept-back headlamps it a bold, almost menacing Rising up from its fenders and its side profile, several edges add texture and flair to the line, which Fulda to an F1 racer. The car culminates at a pointed with a tapered rear and waterfall tail lamps. To its ingot-like body from defiled by scoops, vents and Maybach craftily stylized the side and rear skirts to air under the car and into a Venturi to create downforce and improve for the engine and brakes at speed.

the Exelero is a two-seater, the interior’s is standard Maybach fare. components, such as the upper

and dash, door panels, wheel COMMAND navigation/hifi and HVAC components have pulled from the standard 57 and 62. The instrument cluster also to be standard Mercedes, although it speeds of up to 360 km/h. The Exelero snug racing buckets racing harnesses, as well as a new console. Rather than the supple wood and leather, the concept uses carbon and red-black sports weave

To propel a 5.8-metre long limousine with a curb of 2,660 kg (4,982 lbs) to above 350 km/h takes a lot of which is why Maybach chose ultimate engine: the AMG-tuned twin-turbocharged V12, as found in the S, SL and CL 65 However, the 600-horsepower the engine in Mercedes guise is not nearly to satiate Fulda and Maybach’s for speed: modifications to the turbo output to an incredible 700-horsepower and 752 of torque, propelling the Exelero to 100 in just 4.4 seconds.

What’s important, is the fact that it is of reaching its creators’ goals of the 350 km/h speed

barrier. Just a few days in the hands of Mercedes-Benz test Klaus Ludwig, the Exelero an FIA-certified top speed of 351.45 (218.38 mph) around the oval in Italy. To cope such high velocities, the new was also equipped with braking power through 376 mm (14.8 inch) front that feature two sets of calipers to scrub off speed. Of ABS and ESP stability and traction control are Tires on the Exelero are Fulda’s 315/25ZR 23 Carat Exelero up front and in back. They are around the same 23-inch wheels first seen on the SLR supercar.

For Fulda and Maybach, the is not only a dream come but a partnership reborn; it demonstrates the

cooperation of two major forces can a vehicle that’s not only but beautiful. Unfortunately, it’s that the Exelero will be anything more than a concept car, due to costs. has it that the development for the fully-operational was to cost over a million Nevertheless the Maybach-Fulda Exelero is It’s a truly daring of mechanical art that taps the two companies’ rich history.

I have a new dream car. it’s a one off. if you own it you have exclusivity too.
