when founder ludovic lazareth got his hands on a V8 4.7 liter maserati engine, he knew exactly what to do with it. the ‘LM 847’ is strictly a mechanical sculpture designed around the motorcycle’s engineering. weighing 400 kilograms, the chassis is made from polyester and carbon fiber. lazareth’s method of creating combined both art and craftsmanship with four wheels to successfully tame all 470 hp of the ‘LM-847’. the front includes large dual 420 mm piston disc brakes with rizoma mirrors and levers. lazareth presented the ‘LM-847’ at the 2016 geneva motor show. be sure to check out more of designboom’s coverage of the motor show here.
