Number 2: Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero – Top 10 Most Expensive Cars In The World

2. Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero, $ 8 millions.

The Maybach Exelero is a very special concept car in that it was created in cooperation with tire producer Fulda. For the testing of high-performance tires, the company needed a car that was capable of exceeding the 350 km/h (217 mph) mark. A Maybach model had been built to serve as a test car for Fulda as early as the late 1930s – and this connection was revived a couple of years ago. The final result was more than convincing: on May 1, 2005, racing driver Klaus Ludwig drove the Maybach Exelero fitted with Fulda tires in Nardo/Italy and attained a speed of 351.45 km/h – setting a new world speed record for limousines on series-production tires.
