Lazareth-Wazuma-V8F

Lazareth, a mad-tuning, custom-vehicle maker working its magic out of France, has finally done it, successfully mating a Ferrari V-8 with a quad bike. By bolting the engine to a BMW M3 gearbox and shoehorning it into a Wazuma R1 quad bike, the Lazareth team has created an ultra-powerful, lightweight rocket that is sure to peel the skin from the face of the heartiest of men and women.

Nicely dubbed the Wazuma V8F Matte Edition, the mutant four-wheeler weighs a mere 1,433 pounds while boasting 250 horses. Of course, not just any set of wheels can handle such tarmac ripping awesomeness, so the Wazuma V8F Matt Edition comes suitably fitted with the industrial killer 285‐30ZR18 tires on the front and a pair of 315‐30ZR18 tires on the back. Its suspension isn’t any system of stock shocks either. No, the thing sits on four horizontal EMC shocks, while it gets its stops from 324mm brake discs and performance Brembo calipers.

Obviously, a croissant of this caliber is not a budget buy. Though official costing details have yet to be released, rumors have it that it’ll go for around $250,000.
