The Maybach Exelero is a one -off production of the Maybach-Manufaktur belonging to the Daimler group for the tire manufacturer Fulda .
In the 1930s, a collaboration between Fulda and Maybach already took place, in the course of which a high-speed vehicle was built. Background was the application of their own, very efficient rubber tires, which should be occupied by the continuous load with this vehicle. The predecessor of the Exelero was a revolutionary streamlined car, which was made on the basis of a Maybach SW 38 as a unique piece by the coachbuilder Dörr & Schreck , with the 1938 high-speed tires (then up to 200 km / h) were tested. This car was lost in World War II .
With the launch of their new high-speed tire Fulda Carat Exelero , people remembered the historic project again at the Fulda works and again contacted the Daimler brand Maybach. Then, based on a Maybach 57 S, the one-of-a- kind piece of a sports coupé was built, the body of which was designed by four graduate students of Transportation Design at the University of Pforzheim . The final design was created by Fredrik Burchhardt. The construction was taken over by the prototype prototype Stola from Turin .
With the tire dimensions 315/25 ZR 23 high-speed tests were driven by Klaus Ludwig on the Italian racetrack of Nardò , in which the Exelero exceeded the required 350 km / h in the second attempt. The vehicle reached 351.45 km / h in the FIA standard test procedure. Noteworthy is also the acceleration of 0 to 100 km / h: 4.4 seconds on an empty weight of 2730 kg.In 2007, Stola introduced the Phalcon Coupé, which was to be produced in a small series together with Brabus and Pirelli. It is a near-series development of the Exelero.
