Gut-wrenching: The SR8LM's 455bhp V8 Hayabusa engine!

The SR8LM. More than twice as powerful as a 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa!

So Suzuki have just launched the 2008 Hayabusa and its 180 horsepower is not nearly enough for you. No problem at all – just get a Radical SR8LM. Okay, it isn’t a motorcycle, but it uses a Suzuki Hayabusa engine. No, it uses two Suzuki Hayabusa engines, making it a 2800cc, 455 horsepower V8! Engineered by Powertec, the V8 is mated to a six-speed paddle-shift gearbox and will give you 30 hours of use between rebuilds.

That's two Hayabusa engines joined together, to make a 2.8-litre, 455bhp V8!

The SR8LM, its builders claim, is a car that will match most all-out Le Mans race cars around most circuits and we suppose that means it is one hell of a machine. More details on the SR8LM here, and more details on its Powertec V8 engine here. We first read about this car on The Kneeslider here.

If the 2008 Hayabusa isn't powerful enough for you, you need this Le Mans-worthy V8. Just find a specials builder who'll bolt it on to a motorcycle chassis...
