Maserati-engined Lazareth LM847 busts out at the Geneva Motor Show



This is the Maserati V8-powered Lazareth LM487, which was recently unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. We're told that Batman and Darth Vader have both already ordered one

Trust the French to build the most outrageous, the most outlandish motorcycle in the world - the Lazareth LM847, which is powered by a 4.7-litre Maserati V8 that produces 470 horsepower and 620Nm of torque. With a kerb weight of 400kg, the LM847 still has a power-to-weight ratio of more than 1:1, so should be pretty intense to ride.

In addition to a fancy Italian V8 engine, the Lazareth LM847 also packs in groundbreaking technology in terms of its chassis, suspension and packaging. It employs four separate wheels (two at each end, mounted very closely), aluminium swingarms at the back and at the front, and hub-centre steering. Since each wheel seems to be independently sprung, the LM847 will lean in the corners like a proper motorcycle. And the thing also has monstrous stopping power, with two 420mm perimeter-type brake discs at the front, with Nissin 8-piston calipers, and twin 255mm brake discs at the back, with 4-piston calipers. The tail section is straight off a Ducati Panigale and is just about the only visible piece of bodyword on the LM847. What a machine!
