The rich have their quirks. Striving for uniqueness is reflected in the automobiles of their wealthy owners. Often, these vehicles are created under the individual order and get exclusive versions of well-known models. Sometimes, the motor companies produce such unique cars in honor of anniversaries and to demonstrate at various auto shows. Here are some of them, the most elegant and stylish, from my point of view.
Maybach Exelero is considered to be the one of the most luxurious and expensive supercars in the world. It was created on the basis of limousine Maybach 57 in 2005. Original sports coupe was made in cooperation with the German tire manufacturer Fulda for the demonstration of a new generation of high-speed tire company. These vehicles were designed for speeds of over 370 kilometers per hour. American rapper Bryan Williams (Birdman) bought the car in 2011 for $ 8 million. In 2012, Daimler expressed the intention to dismantle the brand, explaining that “Maybach” brought the concern only losses for the last few years.
McLaren X-1 was created by engineers of sector of Special Operations. This car was made taking into account all the wishes of the secret buyer from the Middle East. By the way, these wishes cost $ 7 million.
Jaguar BlackJag is a truly unique car. “Black cat” was officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2004. This elegant sports car was built with the participation of the Spanish company Fuore Design. This is a car with a mass of 1350 kilograms, acceleration to 100 in 3.8 seconds, and its top speed can reach 340 km/h. It was sold in 2014 for 3 million 820 thousand dollars.
Peugeot Onyx. To create such an unusual model, in addition to the usual carbon fiber, the French used copper, felt and PAPER. Instead of the side mirrors – the camcorder, windshield – high tech polymethylmethacrylate. Onyx is a really working engine despite of such a futuristic design of the concept – 600-horsepower turbo diesel engine V8 3.7-liter.
Maserati Shortcut 99 Concept is a work of Italian designer Andrea Spaggiari. The concept car is different with its longitudinal V-shaped 8-cylinder engine. The car received the tail lights like Maserati GT has and the special configuration of the cabin 2+2. Quite nice, but from the entire Maserati production I personally prefer GranTurismo =)
