The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance concept car designed and built by luxury marque Maybach, and presented in May 2005. The 700 hp (SAE) (514 kW) two-seater with a bi-turbo V12 engine is a one-off design commissioned by Fulda Tyres. Fulda is using this Maybach as a reference vehicle to test a new generation of wide tires. The German luxury car manufacturer created the one-off model as a modern interpretation of its legendary streamlined car of the 1930s. There are various allusions to the historical predecessor, which was likewise based on a powerful Maybach automobile, in this case the Maybach SW 38, and was also used by Fulda for tire testing. Jay-Z can be seen driving one in his video for "Lost One".

It is likely to contain information of a speculative nature, but such speculation is usually sourced from the automotive news media, the automaker's media press releases, or other news sources. Concept cars, or similar evolutionary vehicles based on them, may never see production. The content and specifications for those selected for continuation may change significantly as the concept evolves, or as production nears if it is launched, and as more information becomes available. Concept automobiles, and their derivatives if any, are subject to delays or cancellation by the automaker.
