minimal yet playful, the classic vehicle only weighs 850kg and drives with an impressive 460hp. originally built with a 1000 cc austin engine, the lazareth MINI moke is customized with a V8 4700 cc maserati engine. ludovic lazareth, the founder of the automobile prototyping shop, also modernized the car exterior with a pair of 17- inch aluminum rims for a broader appearance.

the topless two-seater vehicle is designed to be simple. as on the original version, the driver will only find a single speedometer at the dashboard. behind the black leather seats, the car features a compact rectangular trunk. the steering wheel is also customized with a metallic maserati branded steering wheel with black handles.
