Yes Yes! And how much would you like, if the length is almost 6 m, and in the base - 3390 mm - a compact compact car will fit?
At first glance, especially when you see a car alive, it seems that this monument of titanic proportions is a model that is not capable of driving. He drives and develops … more than 350 km / h! Well, nothing without exclamations!
The construction of the giant was started by the German tire company Fulda. For almost 100 years, she has been ordering unusual high-speed cars to showcase her products, sometimes even trucks and buses. The tire workers have long-standing relationships with the Maybach company. In the second half of the 1930s, a streamlined coupe was built on the Maybach-SW 38 chassis, capable of reaching 200 km / h. It was not possible to use the car in full - the war broke out, during which the car disappeared. After 60 years, Fulda created 23-inch Karat Exceller tires and initiated the construction of a suitable car. Therefore, the coupe can be called not only "Maybach", but also "Fulda-Exceller."
Students worked on the project on a competitive basis under the supervision of Daimler-Chrysler employee Harold Leshke. Then, the Italian design and engineering company Stola joined in the work. Finally, using the Maybach-57 platform, a huge compartment was slowly assembled on the tubular frame, finishing the interior with leather, aluminum and ultramodern synthetics.
The car was run in at a company landfill, received TU..V approval: “Excello” was allowed to ride on ordinary roads! And finally, on May 1, 2005, at 7.28, it happened: at the Italian Nardo racetrack, racer Klaus Ludwig accelerated the coupe to 351.45 km / h. A car and inflated, in order to avoid excessive heating, up to 3.5 atm tires showed viability.
