The 350 km/h 700 bhp Fulda Maybach

May 15, 2005 The Maybach Exelero show car unveiled to the world for the time this week is a car with an even more story behind it. The 700-hp biturbo two-seater is a unique model produced for tyre Fulda Reifenwerke, which is the Maybach Exelero as a reference for a newly developed generation of tyres. The German manufacturer of cars built the unique as a modern interpretation of its legendary sports car from the 1930s, forging a link with the predecessor, which at that was likewise based on a powerful automobile (SW 38) and used by Fulda for tests.

The Exelero embodies the expression to date of the Maybach strategy of offering specific solutions on request. In initial on the high-speed Nardo test in Italy, the Exelero reached a top of 351.45 kmh.

Fulda has a history of building high concept cars with to test and market its tyres. In its long history, it has almost produced a signature machine to and market a new tyre and so it was to be the case new top-of-the-range sports performance the Fulda Carat Exelero a performance tyre that to the company’s objectives for the tyre, is a that cannot be compared any previous Fulda product.”

Fulda “ambassador automobiles”

Two examples of the extreme lengths to Fulda will go in constructing an manifestation of their tyres are the 993 Extremo and the fourth generation show truck constructed for the 100th anniversary in 2000. The vehicle created for the introduction of its Carat Extremo in 1997 was a Porsche 993 with more 600 hp, a maximum speed of over 350 and acceleration from 0 to 200 kmh in less 7.2 seconds. The car impressively demonstrated the of the Extremo tyre with an breathtaking performance.

The 100th anniversary of the Fulda company marked the birth of the and most recent showtruck The fascinating result was a truck combined the construction techniques of engineering, the refinements of the luxury bus and handling inspired by a sports The truck will be the subject of a in its own right in Gizmag shortly and it be worth the wait as it is a treasure of technology and source of wonderment for any male.

The showtruck is a unique of the brand and its products: functionally optically impressive and technically streets ahead.

The challenge to a congruent automobile for the tyre

The wanted to portray the Fulda Exelero tyre to the world as an into a new technology dimension, a tyre design.”

Accordingly, in an ambassador for a new tyre generation, was plenty of scope for the designers’ a maximum of creative scope and no set to the imagination or budget. The company was in the of the ultimate vehicle for the high-end and what was expected was nothing than an automobile full of

The decision to build an automobile on a Maybach stemmed from a finding when the company was its 100th anniversary.

1938 high speed testing vehicle required

In the 100th anniversary, drawings and were discovered of the Maybach vehicle SW 38 from 1938, had been commissioned by Fulda. As was by the documents, at the end of the 1930s, Fulda renowned Frankfurt coachbuilders and Schreck, to develop a car with bodywork for the purpose of high-speed testing.

The background to this project was an important boost to in vehicle manufacturing and in the development of the network. The thirties revolutionised the of automobile manufacturing. And Fulda was of this upswing.

In 1933, large parts of the revolutionary road system had been it became possible for the first to maintain high speeds long distances and for long of time. The tyre industry was to take these new conditions account with high-performance and products.

Fulda recognised the of the time and started planning for a car with the focus of attention on speed. The objective was to break the barrier of 200 km/h, at that an absolutely incredible speed and one in aerodynamics proved to be an important

Based on preliminary discussions, the chassis quickly became the favourite among those designs considered, not least the engines offered remarkable Furthermore, close business had already existed between the two because Fulda had already been involved as an OEM tyre for Maybach cars.

The first of the special-purpose vehicle was based on the of the Maybach Zeppelin model a twelve-cylinder engine. For weight however, in the end the smaller Maybach SW 38 6 cylinders, 3.6 litre capacity and 140 bhp was

Under the direction of the aerodynamics Freiherr Reinhard Koenig the legendary Fulda Maybach car was developed, with a sensational speed of over 200 kmh.

The German aerodynamic expert created a streamlined masterpiece and one of the automotibiles designed specifically to an undisturbed airflow at the rear end of the The aerodynamic studies conducted on the car done in a windtunnel using threads which were to numerous parts of the bodywork so the could visualise what was at a granular level.

The work was on 27 July 1939. The delivery of unique special vehicle was with great interest by the and a great resonance in the specialist Due to the start of World War II, it was no longer to use the Maybach on the planned scale.

a few months the streamlined car had disappeared as the plunged into global war it has been found.

2005: The of the Fulda Maybach.

Two thirds of a after completion of the famous automobile, the Maybach and Fulda stand together in the public The new vehicle is neither a reprise of the nor a retro design from the century. The astonishing result of the cooperation: is an unmistakable tribute to the — and nevertheless a high highlight of a very special

With the intention of projecting a of history into the future the modern interpretation of the streamlined car of a number of creative minds assembled in the project team for the new Maybach Concept Car. to create a fascinating blend of and elegance, the Pforzheim Polytechnic’s Department and the Design Department of AG set the cooperative relationship which has successfully for many years now motion once again.

A considerable planning effort and detailed work was the dominant of the daily round of the team during the next few months. In for the four students of the college’s Design department, the work on the of the unique vehicle represented an unforgettable challenge.

The optimal of elegance and high performance was the the aim of the by Wolf Seebers. In particular, the of the radiator grille clearly the inspiration of the characteristic Maybach The line from the cockpit to the section, in contrast, was designed in two which bear a close to the design style of Formula 1.

Hellmann’s proposed design in another direction. His concept had a American look about it at the same time, possessed traces of its historic predecessor. The of two-color paintwork, for example, is an visual reference to the famous vehicle from 1939.

the model from Andreas the design study from Barth also called for a paint job for the new Fulda Maybach Car. The design of the tail was thereby based on the the model of a stern. The most striking in Barth’s concept: here the on the hood of the original are extended into the line of the roof.

The design study by Fredrik led to different associations: While recognize significant traces of a split window, parallel to others drew comparisons the construction of a catamaran. The design in the colors red and black put the focus on the radiator grille and deliberately the use of a fender at the front. Initially, it was Burchhardt’s design which as the winner.

But the outstanding creative of Barth, Hellmann and Seebers not ignored in the following implementation

All four designs were as 1:4 models and from each of the designs, important ideas and were picked up and incorporated in an design of an incomparable vehicle.

As as the concept designs were, implementation was equally professional. And exclusive was the result — a arrangement of the most striking elements of limousine and coupe, in a spectacular sports car on the basis of Maybach 57.

The completion of the Fulda Concept Car appears all the more when one considers the challenging of developing a coupé on the basis of an limousine without having to a completely new design. Despite a time schedule, Jürgen the responsible project engineer and of development at Maybach, together his team, managed to realize the successfully.

The sports coupé shape at the end of May 2004: after model phases had been completed, the exterior, interior and were tested, adapted and In the 1:1 model dreams, visions and took on concrete form in the reference object for the decisive in development: the construction and test

However, with the reinterpretation of the car of 1938, it was not only intended to an optical novelty of modern manufacturing. The targeted 350 kilometers per maximum speed confronted the design engineers with the of manufacturing a fully-functional special which, as the fastest Maybach is capable of redefining the benchmarks in of performance for limousines on standard

However, it quickly became that, despite the Biturbo the customary 12-cylinder engine not be able to produce the targeted speed. The vitally necessary came from Untertürkheim. The in the Mercedes Car Group optimized the charger and increased the cubic of the type 12 engine to 5.9 liters.

In the 700 hp of engine output confirmed the brilliance of the implemented modifications.

The test measurements at the beginning of May at the high speed Motodrom in Italy, impressively documented the of the unique efforts of all concerned: a top of 351.45 km/h! And thus the record for limousines.
