The minds at French builder Lazareth are truly mad as a hatter, and Asphalt & Rubber has published several of their more eccentric designs here on our pages. Lazareth’s latest build takes the cake though.
The Lazareth LM 847, which debuted today in Geneva, features the 4.7-liter, 470hp, V8 engine out of a Maserati automobile, with a leaning quad chassis built around it.
We generally loath making comparisons of a manufacturer’s design to another’s, but here Lazareth does seem to be stealing from the best.
The 880 lbs vehicle is conceptually like the Dodge Tomahawk, which featured the V10 engine from the Dodge Viper sports car. The leaning quad setup looks very similar to the Yamaha Tesseract concept, both visually and technically. And for the piece of resistance, the tail section is straight off a Ducati 1299 Panigale.
Don’t let that water-down the effect though, as there is much to behold on the Lazareth LM 847. With the popularity seen in building leaning trike and leaning quad concepts, this one by Lazareth is by far the most outlandish.
