I was scanning thru the channels and came upon a Jay Z video and spotted a car I haven't seen before, I then recognized the hood emblem, Maybach. Did a quick search and found it was the Maybach Exelero. Looks very different, looks very heavy duty, and very fast.

The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance concept car designed and built by luxury marque Maybach, and presented in May 2005. The 700 hp (SAE) (514 kW) two-seater with a bi-turbo V12 engine is a one-off design commissioned by Fulda Tyres. Fulda is using this Maybach as a reference vehicle to test a new generation of wide tyres. The German luxury car manufacturer created the one-off model as a modern interpretation of its legendary streamlined car of the 1930s. There are various allusions to the historical predecessor, which was likewise based on a powerful Maybach automobile, in this case the Maybach SW 38, and was also used by Fulda for tyre testing. Jay-Z can be seen driving one in his video for "Lost One".

Specifications
Length : 5.89 m (19.3 ft)
Width : 2.14 m (7.0 ft)
Weight : 2660 kg (5864 lb)
Engine : V12 bi-turbo from Maybach 57 S 700 hp (SAE) (522 kW), 1020 N·m (737 ft·lbf)
Top speed : 352 km/h (220 mph)
0-60 MPH : 4.4 seconds
Tires : 315/25 ZR 23
Fuel used for Top speed test: 110 octane

Here is a section of the video:
