The Maybach Exelero has always been one of our favorite examples of just how extreme the custom car world can get—a completely rebodied, one-of-a-kind two-door Maybach with a pumped-up engine that sold for a reported $8 million when Birdman picked it up last year. There’s nothing stopping somebody from building another one…except for the fact that Mercedes-Benz doesn’t make Maybachs anymore. But luckily, Rolls-Royce is still around—and if you liked the Exelero, designer Ugur Sahin has a dope design that’s perfect for anyone looking to Exelero a Roller.

Called the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II, the whip is inspired by a classic one-off Roller from 1935 called the “Round Door” Rolls-Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe, but with a much more modern twist. For now, it’s just a design concept, but Sahin is supposedly in talks with some rich people out there interested in making it a reality. We think one of these, based off a Phantom Coupe (and fitted with a motor pumping out an Exelero-beating 710 horsepower, of course), would be the king of baller rides—so if you’re looking for a one-off luxury whip and price is really, really no object, we say let Sahin know. We can’t swing it, so we’ll just lust over the Jonckheere for a while from here. [Shout-out to Autoblog!]
