This Guy Used a Maserati Engine to Build a 470 HP Motorcycle
When you came across a V8 4.7L Maserati 32-valve engine most people would not think: I wonder if I can build a motorcycle around that? Clearly, most people are not Ludovic Lazareth, a custom builder and modifier of bikes and cars who is well known for his exotic designs and builds.
While he insists the Lazareth – LM 847 is ‘strictly a mechanical sculpture designed around the motorcycle’s engineering,’ the 400 kg (880 lb), 475 hp beast is a sight to behold.
The body is made from polyester and carbon fiber and the specs… well the specs are insane. You can find them below along with some amazing photos of this badass motorcycle.
