Lazareth creates a 500-horsepower E85-powered quad (w/VIDEO)

Lazareth Wazuma Bio V12 - Click above for an image gallery

French automobile and motorcycle builder Lazareth has managed to shoehorn an entire BMW V12 engine into one of its crazy Wazuma quads. While there isn't much that's environmentally friendly about a 500-horsepower supercharged V12 from BMW that's powering a rather large and impractical quad platform, Lazareth has decided to attempt to give the machine a bit of eco-cred by running the engine on E85.

Why use ethanol in a decidedly performance-minded machine? We'd guess Lazareth's decision to run E85 as a fuel is due to its superior octane rating, which allows the engine to run a higher compression ratio than with gasoline. If you're interested in adding an ethanol-burning, V12-powered road rocket to your own personal stable of vehicles, all you need to do is write Lazareth a check for 200,000 ($283,000) and await your delivery. Click past the break for a video of the Wazuma Bio V12 in action.

Hell yeah! Too bad we would never get to see something like this state side.

Meh, we kind of already have something, but granted, it's not a V12:



Personally, I'd rather have a Boss Hoss:

Yeah, you definitely wouldn't be carving up the road like you would on that french thing, but still cooler, imo.

I want to see how this thing would do on the Fifth Gear test track against some badass cars. I would guess that it would be very near the top.
