700 horsepower and a killer body, the Maybach Exelero may hint a new high-performance model from the ultra-lux sedan maker. The V-12 coupe is based on the Maybach 57 and designed to test a high-speed tire for the German tire manufacturer Fulda. The Exelero needed to surpass the 188 mph mark for Fulda. The super-Bach can get to 55 mph in 4.4 seconds with the help of two turbochargers and 740 ft-lbs of torque. We were amazed how finished the interior was.

so they design and build a very big very expensive car, put their untested tires on it, drive it around at 190 mph, and hope the tires prove successful? sounds like an awful lot of trouble IMO.
