Built by famed French custom vehicles artisans Lazareth, this beastly-looking Lazareth LM 847 is perhaps one of the most extreme quad-bikes ever built thanks to its powertrain – a Maserati V8 engine.
Unveiled at the on-going 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Lazareth LM 847 sees its makers reaching new heights with its capabilities in tailoring custom vehicles.
This 399kg quad-bike’s chassis was custom-built and was designed by Lazareth around that massive Maserati 4.7-litre V8 engine that outputs 470hp. This engine was originally built by Ferrari for the Maserati brand and can be found in several of the trident marque’s performance models such as the GranTurismo, GranCabrio and the Quattroporte.
Besides the Italian supercar engine, the Lazareth LM 847 also boasts an intricate leaning-multi-wheel (LMW) suspension setup that is similar to the Yamaha Tesseract concept in both its visual and technical aspects.
Furthermore, the Maserati engine isn’t the only Italian element here. The rear section is lifted straight off the Ducati 1299 Panigale superbike too.
