On Sunday, May 1, 2005, a sleek black coupe rolled out on the 12.5-kilometer test track in Nardo, Italy. It was 5:45 in the morning. Less than ninety minutes later, with champion race driver Klaus Ludwig at the wheel, the car had delivered performance that would blow the doors off of any of the cars in the movie. Think 4.4 seconds from 0-62 and a top speed of 351.45 km/h (over 218 miles per hour).
And the story behind the Exelaro:
This fabulous one-off concept car is actually a rolling advertisement for a new brand of tires made by Fulda, a Goodyear subsidiary and one of the leading tire makers in Germany. The Fulda Carat Exelero is a high-performance tire designed for larger wheels. In fact, the Carat Exelero is available in sizes up to 315/25 ZR 23. Even if your tastes run to those big chrome "dubs," you won't have any problem getting a Fulda tire that fits.
The origins of the Exelero project can be traced back to a special car Fulda wanted to test a new tire at sustained speeds in excess of 200 km/h (about 124 mph). In 1938, Fulda commissioned a one-of-a-kind car from Frankfurt-based custom builders Dörr & Schreck. Dörr & Schreck, in turn, decided to build this super-speedster on a SW38 chassis from Maybach Motorenbau.
During the war the custom Maybach disappeared and was never seen again. But its memory served as the inspiration for another car more than sixty years later.
