Ferrari V-8 Powered Quad Is The Ultimate Holiday Gift: Video


Lazareth is a French builder of wheeled exotica that seems to specialize in the bizarre. Take its Lazareth Wazuma, for example; while the world may not need a 500 horsepower quad, powered by a supercharged BMW V-12, we’re fairly certain it’s a better place because of it.

Lazareth has built other quads, too, all of which have the company’s pseudo-signature narrow rear wheel placement. Perhaps its most alluring build was the Lazareth Wazuma V8F, which shoehorns a 3.0-liter Ferrari V-8 between it’s squat and sexy flanks.

Unlike the blown-BMW Wazuma, which more or less defines “overkill”, the Wazuma V8F makes a sensible 250 horsepower, which probably means its 3.0-liter V-8 was extracted from a Ferrari 308. It’s fed by two fuel injection systems, pulled from Yamaha sportbikes and controlled by a fully programmable ECU.

The Ferrari engine is mated to a BMW M3 sequential gearbox, and meaty 315 millimeter rear tires (slick, for maximum dry traction) put as much power as possible to the ground. Four-wheel Brembo brakes ensure that the V8F can stop as quickly as it accelerates, and the adjustable suspension is custom-built by EMC.

Just in time for holiday gift-giving, the Lazareth Wazuma V8F is for sale on JamesList. The price is a princely 200,000 euros ($261,280).

Still, if you have a hard-to-shop-for Ferrari fan on your holiday list, we can absolutely guarantee he doesn’t already have one of these in his collection. It may be more expensive than a Fernando Alonso-signed helmet, but we’ll bet it will be more appreciated, too.
