Lazareth LM 847: The 470-Horsepower, Tilting 4-Wheel Motorcycle

Lazareth LM 847
Ludovic Lazareth's LM 847, built around a gigantic, 4.7-liter Maserati V8 engine, this terrifying tilting quad bike picks up where the Dodge Tomahawk left off, with four single-sided swingarms, rim-mounted brakes, dual hub-centre steering and a bunch of other crazy touches.

The heart of the matter is a ludicrous motor: the 4.7-liter, 32-valve V8 from the Maserati Quattroporte, a 620 newton-meter bone crusher that puts out exactly 4.7 times the old horsepower limit. Lazareth supplies two rear tires each with its own chain drive, and each on its own hefty single-sided swingarm. At the front end, there's another two giant single sided swingarms, each featuring its own hub-steered front wheel with a Buell-style rim-mounted brake.

Between the front and rear wheels are split carbon fiber aerodynamic shields that work together when the bike is upright to give the impression of a third tire … Or that the whole monstrous thing is just one two-foot wide piece of rubber.
