It just goes to show you that eight million dollars can buy a truly awesome ride. The dynamic good looks of the Maybach Exelero are only a part of the story. One of the most powerful automobiles on the market, the V12 twin turbo engine goes from zero to sixty miles an hour in a mere 4.4 seconds.

There’s a very good reason that this car is positioned here in our countdown, between the best and worst celebrity cars around.

It just goes to show you how much artistic views can change with time. Wonder how much time will have to pass before any of these ugly ducklings are hailed as works of art?

What is it? Well, it started off life as a 1958 Volkswagen Beetle, though it’s almost unrecognizable as such. Designed by the star himself, it is stuffed with clashing details and stretched beyond imagination. This is largely due to the very changeable nature of Will.i.Am himself. From the beginning, the celebrity constantly altered his original vision and it took years to build the finished product. What was brought to life actually looks like something out of a comic book and has, in fact, been compared to the car driven by Dick Tracy. For the money he spent on this monstrosity, reportedly around $900,000, he could have gotten a really fantastic off-the-rack car and ruined it with a terrible paint job, like a lot of other stars. The nicest thing we can say about this car is that it is one-of-a-kind … thankfully.
