6. Maybach Excelero

Debut: Frankfurt Motor Show
Year: 2005
Complex Says: This is how Maybach does performance. Gothic in design, exorbitant in price ($8 million) and power (700 hp), the Excelero was unlike anything anyone in the automotive world had ever seen. It was developed to help design a new generation of wide tires...and to be Jay-Z's chariot in his "Lost Ones" video. OK, OK, it was only built to test tires.
