Birdman has just completed the purchase of a brand new 2011 Maybach Exelero for $8 Million plus import taxes & fees. It is being shipped as we speak and will reach U.S soil within a week.

DeLorean Motor Co. was founded by John DeLorean, a former GM executive, in 1975. Noted for his sex/drugs/RNR lifestyle, DeLorean dated supermodels, partied at Studio 54, and was eventually charged with drug trafficking in the early ’80s. Although he was acquitted, he never quite recovered from ensuing legal battles or the stigma. DeLorean died in 2005 due to a stroke, and as legend goes, he was in the midst of drawing up a second DMC car. There’re even a few movies in the works touted as DeLorean’s biopic. Sony’s in the lead with George Clooney set to play the automotive visionary.
