Maserati-Powered Motorcycle Is The Beast
Maserati-powered motorcycle is the beast.
If you’re one of those people who thought Batman’s motorcycle from The Dark Knight wasn’t insane enough, then the Lazareth LM-847 should give you a heart palpitation. By now we have seen a lot, but we have never seen anything like this before. French builder Lazareth has showcased its new LM 847 at Geneva Auto Show and the motorcycle packs a full Maserati engine.
The insane motorcycle comes with a 4.7-liter, 470hp, V8 engine out of a Maserati automobile, with the rest of the bike build around it. Without a doubt one of the most outlandish motorcycle concepts that we have come across. It is certainly not practical, but you can be sure that you will not remain unnoticed with the Lazareth LM 847.
Founder Ludovic Lazareth unveiled the motorcycle powered by a V8 Maserati 4.7 liter engine earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. We wouldn’t be surprised if it turned some heads.
Sitting at 882 lbs (400 kg) with 470 horsepower, it has a power-to-weight ratio of .553 lbs/hp. To put that into perspective, the Ferrari LaFerrari has a power-to-weight ratio of 3.32 lbs/hp.
The reason it’s so light is because of its all-carbon-fiber-and-polyester build. This thing is crazy light for what it’s sporting. And to contain that massive engine, the motorcycle sits on four wheels instead of two.
Unsurprisingly there are massive 420-mm piston-disc brakes to hopefully prevent the driver from jumping into the Speed Force.
