You wish for to know what insanity looks like? This is it. It’s called the Lazareth LM847, and to pustule it down to its essence, it’s basically a sport bike built yon a Maserati V8.

Now this isn’t the first motorcycle we’ve seen packing a behemoth car engine. There’ve been more form toll jobs than we could list here, and of class there’s the Boss Hoss – an American cruiser with a 5.7-liter Chevy V8 at its basic nature. And we’d be loathe to leave out the V10-powered Tomahawk concept from this review. But this is another matter entirely.

The LM847 is made by a French company called Lazareth. It’s the same company top for the Wazuma quad bike, the Wazuma GT roadster, and that bonkers Renault Twingo with the Line Rover V8 in the back. In other words, Lazareth knows crackers, and hasn’t skimped on it this time.

For its latest enterprise, Lazareth started with a 4.7-liter V8 – the good you used to find the Quattroporte or Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione in advance Maserati started downsizing and bolting on turbos. It produces 470 horsepower and 457 pulverize-feet of torque, channeled through a lone-speed hydraulic coupling in place of a multi-tools transmission.

Strictly speaking, it’s not a motorcycle, but a quad – owing to the tandem wheels at each end. But it has a saddle and handlebars, and looks like it would wasted in a fair bit in the turns. We’re not about to find out in spite of, because we don’t have a death wish.
