We're not sure what to call this thing. It definitely isn't a motorcycle, or a car. It's officially known as the Lazareth LM 847 and is powered by Maserati's 470 horsepower, 4.7 litre V8 powerplant.

It builds on the failures of the Dodge Tomahawk and actually works properly, with quality hub centre tilting steering attached to four single-sided swingarms. The machine retains the automatic transmission from the Maserati, making this the ultimate twist-and-go monster.

The rear end is a work of engineering genius, a TFX shock connecting both wheels and swingarms transversely, each rear wheel powered with its own chain. The final touch of a Ducati Panigale tail section seems fitting for this ludicrous machine, which tops the scales at 400kg.

  • Was a bit confused on how that would corner until I ran the video. Damn clever engineering.

  • Looks like the good ol' Dodge's V10 Tomahawk which had the same V10 of the Viper.
