In today’s crazy world, many unusual automobiles have been developed. You must have seen or heard about a half-bike-half-ferrari already. Now, some engineers in France have gone overboard, and have built souped-up quad bike. This quad bike is powered by a Ferrari engine and has a top whack of 150 mph. Quite unbelievable figures for a quad bike, no ? But this is true, thanks to those French engineers.
This quad bike- Wazuma V8F, costs a whopping £160,000. If you are a Dark Knight fan, you can easily notice the striking resemblance to to the Bat-mobile, driven by Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises. This four-wheeler bike is poweres by a 3-litre V8 engine, which was sourced from a 1970’s Ferrari 308. This bike develops about 250 bhp of max power, which helps it accelerate to its top speed of 150 mph (240 kmph). The bike weighs a meager 650 kilos, which is even lighter than an average hatchback. This translates into a power-to-weight ratio of a whopping 384 bhp per tonne, which is the same as a Ferrari 458 Spider.
That’s not all, with the hefty price tag, the bikes also receive BMW M3 gearboxes and high performance Brembo disc brakes. The bike is shod with 18-inch wheels.
The Wazuma V8F is based on three wheel geometry, with two largely spaced front wheels, and two narrower spaced wheels fitted at the rear. Also, the lights have been fitted from the Japanese Nissan 350Z. But at this hefty price tag, it won’t find much takers, what with other bikes from Honda and Polaris available cheap.
