Lazareth Wazuma: 500bhp BMW V12-powered quad that runs on bio-ethanol

A video of the Wazuma V12 in action
Via MotoRevue

French specials builder Lazareth have now come up with the Wazuma – a quad (four-wheeled motorcycle?) that’s fitted with a supercharged BMW V12, which produces 500 horsepower. It isn’t a hybrid and there isn’t a single lithium-ion battery here, but for what it’s worth, the Wazuma V12 can run on E85 bio-ethanol. How’s that for going green? The price tag, if you must ask, is a mere 200,000 euro (US$284,000) so when you do buy one, you can keep it parked next to your Ferrari 458 Italia. Probably.

WOW this looks like it should be in the Death Race 2000 movie (Huge Spikes included of course).

This is why I love these small design shops, they have the CNC machinery to design whatever their mind imagines, and build a one off machine for a fraction of the cost, in a tenth of the time it took 20 years ago. Keep up the amazing designs guys n gals. I love them all.
