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

Making a stock Yamaha VMAX look even more dramatic than its manufacturer intended couldn't have been an easy task, but Lazareth have pulled it off...
Based in France, Ludovic Lazareth builds some of the wildest custom bikes, trikes and quads at his factory in Annecy-le-Vieux, near the Swiss border. A design graduate with an undying passion for muscle machines, he’s now come up with the VMAX HyperModified you see here, which has been inspired by Japanese Manga.
The Lazareth VMAX HyperModified retains the stock bike’s engine and chassis but features extensively revised styling, a wider rear wheel, a more efficient braking system and lowered fork. We think it looks superb!! For more of Lazareth’s work, visit their official website here
