The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance sports car built in 2004. The 700 hp (522 kW) four-seater with a twin turbo V12 engine is a design built by Maybach-Motorenbau GmbH, on request for Fulda Tyres, the German division of Goodyear. Fulda uses the car as a reference vehicle to test a new generation of wide tires. The German luxury car manufacturer created the model as a modern interpretation of its streamlined sportscar from the 1930s. There are various allusions to the historical predecessor, which was likewise based on a powerful Maybach car. In this case, the Maybach SW 38 was also used by Fulda for tire testing. The car is noted for being portrayed in an episode of long-running German show Cobra 11, in which it is used in the ending chase of the episode "Freundschaft".

According to Top Gear, the vehicle was purchased by rapper Birdman in 2011 for US$8 million. In January 2012, Motorvison profiled the car, which was then owned by Mechatronik and located in Germany, and reports previous rumors of sale to be unfounded.

Jay-Z featured the car in the music video for "Lost One"
