Maybe it's just me, but I think that front end is rediculously ugly.

Yup, here's another picture from their website, just that it's Exelero



Don't really like the rear too much, but the inside would probably be like heaven!!

I love how the hood is elongated and the cabin is set more toward the back of the car.

It doesn't really look like a production car, more like something someone built...It doesn't have that clean factory look. Especially the front...and again..the wheels.

Well look at it this way. There are divisions to companies like Mercedes and BMW such as Brabus, and there is one for BMW i just cant recall from the top of my head. Wheels look nice. Car looks good, but it probbably is one of about 5 made.

Maybach is sick. This guy that runs a rotary shop in the burque used to be a mechainc on the maybach project and says they are built like tanks.

Good times

No really? I had no idea. What has that got to do with anything?

Looks kinda weird, IMO. But it should be pretty interesting to drive...especially handling from that far back. Not that I'll ever get the chance.

Power-wise it has 700 horsepower. It's a V-12 and since it's designed to test some high-speed tire for German Fulda, it can surpass 188mph. 0-55 (IDK why not 60, but w.e) in 4.4 seconds and has two turbochargers. 740ft/lbs of torque! The interior probably looks like it does on any maybach. What the heck is the price tag on one of these though?
