One of the most powerful bikes in the world with tilting 4-wheels.

Ludovic Lazareth’s LM 847 runs on a massive 4.7 litre Maserati V8 engine. Wildly alluring and powerful, it’s wild nature is every bit visible in its four single-sided swingarms and rim-mounted brakes.

Lazareth LM847 is a tilting quad bike. It is a 470 hp beast with a dual hub-centre steering uses a single-speed viscous clutch automatic transmission. The engineering extravaganza isn’t one to aspire for road legal status.

The pretentious mechanical over the top display bike’s 32-valve V8 comes from the Maserati Quattroporte. While running anything on two tyres is a tested idea, it wouldn’t quite be enough to get Lazareth LM 847 moving. That’s being taken care of with two front and two rear tyres. The fierce twin tyres have independent chain drives and rely on their own single-sided swingarm.

It’s all about what you can use. So, Lazareth LM 847 uses a Ducati Panigale tail section that looks true to the original and looks like a fit on the 400kg monstrosity.

The tilting 2.6-metre long quad bike uses a TFX rear shock and carbon fiber aerodynamic shields in the mid section between the wheels. Maybe the handle bars didn’t look wide enough, so Lazareth LM 847 uses bar-end mirrors.
