This is what incredible looks like. The Lazareth – LM 847 motorcycle was actually built around a massive Maserati V8 4.7-liter engine, working much like a supporting structure whose role is to envelop, display and complement the precious piece at the center.
It all began when founder Ludovic Lazareth became the owner of a Maserati engine and an extraordinary idea took shape in his mind. He decided to create a carbon fiber and polyester chassis for this powerful beast, and the result is a wonderful mixture of art, master craftsmanship and innovative engineering.
In order to make sure that the bike would be perfectly able to face the massive power that the engine can churn out, which is 470 bhp, Lazareth made a few key changes both in design and in functionality. The most obvious change of all is the addition of two extra wheels – one at the front and one at the rear.
They add extra stability, and they are wrapped in two pairs of Michelin tires. Other features include massive dual 420 mm piston disc brakes at the front and 255 mm piston disc brakes at the rear, as well as Rizoma levers and mirrors.
