Wazuma V8F: Ferrari-engined quad busts out
Lazareth, whose VMAX HyperModified we featured here recently, have let loose with another insane machine – the Wazuma V8F, which is fitted with a 3.0-litre Ferrari V8. While the V8 is probably from an older Ferrari, its 250 horsepower should likely provide phenomenal performance in a package that only weighs 650 kilos.
From the information available, it seems the V8 was originally carbureted, but has been converted to electronic fuel-injection, with a Sybelle FI system handling the fueling. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a sequential six-speed gearbox (sourced from a BMW M3) and V8F rides on 18-inch wheels shod with 285/30 (front) and 315/30 (rear) ZR-rated rubber. Suspension duties are handled by four horizontally-mounted EMC shock absorbers and 324mm brake discs are fitted to all four wheels.
We think the Wazuma V8F should be just awesome on the street (or, indeed, the track…), but if you think 250bhp might be insufficient, Lazareth also make another Wazuma – one that’s fitted with a supercharged BMW V12 that produces more than 500 horsepower. More details on the Lazareth website here
