It's got a 4.7-liter V8 engine with 470 horsepower, which is crazy. Somebody's actually riding it, which is even crazier.
Lazareth's all-electric E-Wazuma quad will have more torque than a Porsche Boxster.
French quad-bike constructor Lazareth has outdone itself, packing a Maserati V8 engine into a sport bike to make for a death wish on wheels.
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.
We really should just shut up and let the absurdity of this contraption sink in for a spell, but the details of the Lazareth Wazuma V8F are just to insane to leave unmentioned. A 3.0-liter Ferrari V8 lies at the heart of the newest Lazareth Wazuma, and the 250-horsepower lump is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission sourced from a BMW M3.
We won't be strolling the aisles of this year's EICMA show in Milan, and that's nothing short of a crying shame. There's going to be a wide selection of fantastic machines on display, including a very interesting project built on the bones of the Yamaha Vmax. Yamaha Europe has released a teaser for the custom bike, and as it turns out, the project has called upon some of the most renowned builders in the world. Roland Sands, Marcus Walz and Ludovic Lazareth have all thrown in a bit of expertise

Lazareth combines a few of his most frequently-used elements on his newest creation based on the current generation fuel-in-the-frame Buell chassis. Employing a supercharger which was previously used in the engine bay of a last-generation Mini Cooper S, the Lazarus also features a single-sided swingarm and single-sided front fork. The Buell chassis lends itself well to the use of a supercharger because the airbox on top is completely replaced by the power-adder and a nice frame cut-out is alread
Volkswagen's recent foray into motorcycle-inspired cars with its GX-3 concept had us prowling the web for other hybrid creations, and we discovered this all-asphalt monster quad, the creation of French car and bike tuner Ludovic Lazareth. The Lazereth "Quadrazuma" is powered by a Yamaha GTS 1000 4-cylinder engine, producing 120 hp at 12,000 rpm. Considering its curb weight of 837 pounds, performance should be, well, inspiring.
