Lazareth LM847

Standard

I have to admit I’m not too crazy about bikes, but when I saw this one I just felt compelled to write about it. This is the Lazareth LM847, and no you’re not seeing things double. It actually has four wheels.

This beast has been built by French company Lazareth, who apparently are known for building some crazy things. They certainly haven’t held back this time either. This bike, which technically is a quad due to the tandem wheels, is built around a V8 Maserati engine, which the guys at Lazareth tweaked obviously. According to Autoblog, it

“produces 470 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, channeled through a single-speed hydraulic coupling in place of a multi-gear transmission.”

You might think that this thing could never work as it seems unable to go round a corner. However, you’d be wrong. Lazareth was aware of this potential problem and came up with a solution: hinged axles. You can see it in action in the video below.

Though i’m in awe of this beast, I’d never even think about getting on it. What about you, would you be willing to give it a go?

    Sorry about the delay, this post seemed to hide from me in the reader!!
    This is a pretty crzy bike!! I’m not a particular motorbike fan, but even I can’t deny that this stands out. I’ve noticed that it looks a heck of a lot like the Dodge Tomahawk, which is a V10. Google it!

    • They seem to do that sometimes, don’t they? I can’t help but think of Mad Max or Judge Dred when I see it. It definitely looks a lot like the Tomahawk, though the Dodge looks a bit unfinished to me. At least several of the images on google do.
