By a good measure the most expensive car that can be seen driving around Hollywood is rapper Jay Z’s eight million dollar Maybach Exelero. You may have seen it driving around and thought it was the bat mobile, because it bears a striking resemblance. The Exelero is fairly fast. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.44 seconds and reach a top speed of 218 mph, which is surprising because it weights over 2 ½ tons. It was manufactured in 2005 as a one-of-a-kind by Fulda Tires, but if you have an extra eight million lying around they will make one for you. You won’t find one of these at Diamond Honda.
