Lazareth E-Wazuma

   

Wazuma is one of the good synonyms of terms such as "extreme," "insane," or "dangerous," After they introduced the Lazareth LM 847, a 470 hp Maserati-powered LM 847 quad, but now it's time for something that's just as crazy: the E-Wazuma.

Lazareth
has a series of insanely-engined quads, powered by various motors, including a V8, a V12, and a 1,000 cc Yamaha R1, amongst others. Lazareth has now taken the electric route with the Wazuma, coming out with this slightly off-the-wall e-quad that houses twin 30 kW electric motors, and producing 490 Nm of torque.

Compared to the 611 Nm torque from the LM487, 490 Nm doesn’t sound like much, until you realise all that torque is available from zero rpm, at zero km/h. Driving the rear wheels, the dual-electric motors should deliver an almost immediate response, and bonkers acceleration.

Developed in conjunction with French mecha-tronic company NTN-SNR, more widely known for its mechanical bearing solutions, the e-Wzuma is a prototype built as a technological showcase for its products, as well as Lazareth’s design expertise.
