Rapper Birdman forks down $8,000,000 for Maybach Exelero?


If you think the Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe is expensive with its starting price at $929,685, wait till you get a load of its limited-edition version, the Maybach Exelero coupe. It is priced at a staggering $7,800,000, which will be the most expensive luxury sedan ever sold to a celebrity. 

According to recent reports, the Birdman (aka rapper Bryan Williams) is about to fork down a hefty sum of $8 million for the Maybach Exelero coupe. According to an interview with Celebritycarsblog.com a couple of weeks ago, Birdman said, “They got this new Maybach that I want that costs $8 million, I gotta have it.”

The Maybach Exelero is based on the Maybach 57, which is a two-seater that combined top-notch elegance and extreme power. It is powered by a bi-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 753 pound-feet of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 218 mph. And you can throw the fuel efficiency factor out the window, but if you really want know, its has an average fuel consumption of 14.3 mpg U.S.

There is only 100 units of the Maybach Exelero coupe ever produced. So what makes this German super luxury coupe so expensive? Because it can. Exelero? It sounds like to accelerate those trailing zero’s behind the dollar sign. If $8,000,000 is too expensive for your taste, you can try the Project Kahn Maybach 57 or the Xenatec Maybach instead.
