Geneva: Lazareth Wazuma GT isn’t a car, isn’t a motorcycle, is somehow legal

Lazareth Wazuma GT

Lazareth, a motorcycle and automobile tuner that hails from France, is known for producing some of the most outrageous custom creations in all of Europe. Its latest, known as the Wazuma GT, can be seen above. It’s got four wheels but really only three contact points, the minimum amount of bodywork possible, two seats and an engine.

It’s the details that make the Wazuma GT special, starting with its 4.0-litre, supercharged V8 engine from Jaguar. The engine spits out 375 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque to the extremely close-set pair of rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Not an outrageous amount of power these days, but when paired with the Wazuma GT’s 985 kilogram (2,170 pound) curb weight, you’re left with a power-to-weight ratio that rivals just about anything else on wheels.

Lazareth points out that the Wazuma GT is neither a car nor a motorcycle, and that its rider/driver isn’t required to wear a helmet. We’d counter that perhaps some head protection wouldn’t be a bad idea anyway. You’re welcome to check it out in our high-res image gallery above.
