Lazareth, a motorcycle and automobile tuner that hails from France, is known for producing some of the most outrageous custom creations in all of Europe. Its latest, known as the Wazuma GT, can be seen above. It's got four wheels but really only three contact points, the minimum amount of bodywork possible, two seats and an engine.

It's the details that make the Wazuma GT special, starting with its 4.0-liter, supercharged V8 engine from Jaguar. The engine spits out 375 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque to the extremely close-set pair of rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Not an outrageous amount of power these days, but when paired with the Wazuma GT's 2,170 pound curb weight, you're left with a power-to-weight ratio that rivals just about anything else on wheels.

Lazareth points out that the Wazuma GT is neither a car nor a motorcycle, and that its rider/driver isn't required to wear a helmet. We'd counter that perhaps some head protection wouldn't be a bad idea anyway. You're welcome to check it out in our high-res image gallery above.

      Yeah. That's a car under DOT rules. Good luck on using in the LA HOV lanes. On the plus side...you definitely wouldn't need a helmet.

      "3 points of contact" - wrong. The rear 2 points are close to each other, but there are 4 points of contact. In the US, the DOT would call it a car. The advantages are you have no differential (weight and $) and tapering the rear bodywork could have significant aero drag payoff - but they do not seem too concerned with drag. The disadvantage is the narrow rear track makes optimizing rear grip in corners and on rough pavement difficult, if not impossible.

      It's not as cool as the Morgan 3-Wheeler but I dig the attempt to be different.

      Looks like a half-assed car.

      Any idea what such a thing would set a person back?

        My guess.. more than a new jag with the same motor and a roof.

      I remember the Lazareth 4-wheel Wazuma "street bike" - could be had with either the BMW V12 or Ferrari V8. Looks like they crafted a slick body & added (seats?) to kinda make a full concept this time. Looks good & devilishly fun too.

      Are we talking about what appears to be rear wheel steering? I don't see any mention of it, but it sure looks like the rear wheels are steering in pictures 12 and 13. What up with that?

        No rear steer, it just looks that way because the rear bodywork comes back at an angle.

      If you're going to do any spirited driving or if you or your passenger are short, you're going to slam the **** out of your head on that far too high center rail cutting through the cockpit. Not to mention, the odd driver/passenger interference it causes. Just make it single at that point. It also looks like the ugly child of a Nissan Z and a SLR. All that being said, I still find it kinda cool. :)
