And it's got a power-to-weight ratio that no supercar can match.

At first glance, the Wazuma V8F kind of looks like a motorcycle. Check it out from a different angle and it looks like a trike. But there are two rear wheels mounted close together. It's also not a real car. No, the Wazuma V8F is the creation of a French automotive company called Lazareth, which specializes in building odd-looking machines and various other custom works. The Wazuma V8F has motorcycle-like handlebars instead of a steering wheel, and is powered by a Ferrari V8 that produces 250 horsepower.

All of that juice is sent to the 18-inch Momo wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox taken from a BMW M3. Like a motorcycle, the driver sits on a thin bench and has to lean forward in order to steer using those wide handle bars which also house all of the main controls. With a top speed of 150 mph, a set of large brakes are required in order to prevent drivers from crashing into anything from other cars to brick walls. All told, the Wazuma V8F tips the scales at just 1,433 lbs. and costs around £150,000. Expensive? Yes, but just think of its power-to-weight ratio compared to just about any other high-performance sports car out there and tell us you wouldn't be tempted.
