What do you get when you take a Ferrari 3.0L V8 engine, mate it to a BMW M3 sequential gearbox and slap four of the fattest michelin pilot sport tirest to it – one of the angriest machines we have seen to date!
The Wazuma V8F is powered by a 3.0L V8 Ferrari which is mated to a BMW M3 sequential gearbox. It has twin wheels at the rear, and has been designed to be as light and efficient as possible. Yes, this is an alternative for a “green” car… well sort of.
The quad bike develops about around 250 hp for a total weight of 650kg. The engine has been modified to incorporate two ramps injection Yamaha R1. The entire engine management is programmable through Sybelle. Management of the gearbox to also been completely redesigned, and gear selection is done using two buttons on the handlebars. Momo wheels are extended to the rear to allow the fitment of beefy 315/30 ZR 18 tires, while the front sports a set of 285/30 ZR 18’s. Brake calipers are sourced from Brembo, and coupled with four 324 mm discs, suspension damping is provided by four horizontal EMC measurement systems.
