Reports have been filing in today regarding news that P.Diddy’s son, who recently celebrated his 16th birthday, was given a rather expensive gift – even for celebrity standards - by dear old Daddy-O to the tune of a $360,000 Maybach Exelero. Now, if you’re a car aficionado, you’re going to immediately raise a few red flags upon reading this report.

Red Flag no. 1: There’s only one Maybach Exelero in the world and it’s highly unlikely that Diddy gave it to his son as a birthday present.

Red Flag no. 2: The Maybach Exelero does not cost $360,000. Actually that price tag is just a shade under 5% of what an Exelero actually costs, which, if you don’t know, is around $8 million.

The report does say that the car Diddy got for his son, Justin, costs around $360,000 so we’re going to venture a guess that it might have been something along the likes of either a Maybach 57 or a Maybach 62.

But an Exelero? We sincerely doubt that Diddy even considered for one iota to get his 16-year old son a car that comes with a price tag of around four Bugatti Veyrons.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Whoa, that’s all I can say. Anyways, if I have that much money ($8 million) I’d get myself a few Ferrari or something, I mean I’d get my son a great car but not this one. If I can have the chance to have this car, I’d probably use it for myself and no one else. But if they were to remake “The God Father” I’d let them borrow this car.
