The Exelero project is actually a venture between Maybach and tire manufacturer Fulda. has been making all sorts of rubber for almost a century, and is known for using high-profile vehicles to advertise itself. vehicles include high-speed special trucks and racing Oh yeah, Fulda also used a super streamlined to test high-speed tires 200 kph) way back in 1938.

As you well know, car and tire has changed a lot, so Maybach and can’t just rebuild a 200 kph (148 mph) car and call it a Fulda needs a car to test its tire that is capable of of over 350 kph (217 mph). For of you not literate in reading tire this tire will fit a rim, be 313 millimeters wide (or a foot wide) with a profile sidewall. More this tire is not designed for cars it’s designed for street legal ride. a street-legal ride that can go 220 miles per hour.

How It All Started

The company’s comes from Wilhelm one of Germany’s first automotive He designed the first car that a Mercedes badge in 1901 and collaborated with Graf to design and produce engines for the known as Zeppelins. With his son Karl by his side, the automaker the very first Maybach in Based on a Mercedes-Benz chassis, the W1 was an experimental project designed to Maybach the opportunity to test-drive a few of his engineering concepts. A couple of later, the engineer evolved prototype into a vehicle for public use — the Maybach Type W3, made its debut at the Berlin Show in 1921.

A one-off custom-built Maybach was in May 2005 at the Tempodrom in Berlin. by tyre company Fulda, the is a chopped-down two-seater coupe, it’s more than a show car — in tests at the high-speed oval, the prototype a speed of 218.38mph, despite over 2.66 tonnes. It is of acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.4

The car’s design was the result of a amongst students at the Pforzheim Department of Transport Design, has worked on show vehicles for in the past. The design of 24-year-old Burchhardt was chosen, and his work was with that of the Maybach centre in Sindelfingen. The project, on the Maybach 57 limousine, required a amount of re-engineering; the A-pillar and had to be shifted rearwards, and the steering pedals and gearshift all re-located. The 550bhp V12 engine was bored out to 5.9 and tuned for 700bhp and over ft of torque. With final of 5890mm long, 2140mm and just 1390mm high, the car was out with a full-spec interior, leather, neoprene, aluminium and finishes.#0160;

Maybach says the car, by Stola in Turin, is a one-off created to showcase the new ultra-high Exelero tyre range leading tyre manufacturer it’s not the first time the two have teamed up, as back in Fulda demonstrated its tyres on a SW 38 limousine.
