honestly, we do not know what to make out of the Lazareth Wazuma V8F Matt Edition. is it a bike? a roadster? or some new-age quad bike. let’s do a little DNA decoding here: for starter it looks like a bike with its bike handle and all, but it has got four wheels – two upfront in a wide stance setup and two tightly spaced rear wheels, which makes it look more like a quad, but yet it does really look like one. confused as we are, even after nearly two years since we first caught glimpse of the Wazuma V8 Ferrari, we still have no idea what it is. all we know is, the Wazuma V8F Matt Edition it looks ridiculously awesome, especially with its almost tactical-like paint job. for now, we will just take it as a bike on four wheels – a hybrid of motorcycle and roadster of sort. heck, even the motor is a prove of its hybrid intent.

powered by the same Ferrari-sourced 3.0-liter V8 unit as found on the Wazuma V8 Ferrari, but with an injection system sourced from two superbikes and fully managed by a laptop-tuning-friendly Sybelle system, that gives yield to 250 horses (186 kW). granted that 250 ponies ain’t a supercar figure, but all that is used to push around a mere 650 kilograms (1,433 pounds) package, which can be pretty exhilarating, if not scary. like the previous Ferrari iteration, this handsome beast is not lacking of features, which include a 6-speed sequential gearbox harvested from a BMW M3 (actuated by two buttons on the handlebar), EMC-made horizontal suspension setup, Brembo brakes, and 18-inch Momo +Power sport wheels shod with 285/30 ZR18 rubbers upfront and massive 315/30 ZR18 rubbers at the rear.

from what we read, this vehicle appeared to be a one-off thing, a show vehicle of sort that isn’t registered (presumably for the road) in France. so, for all you know, this bike/car hybrid might not even be road-legal, but that’s not the important information here; what’s important is, you can actually own of these – if you have 154,800 euros to spare.
