Wazuma Bio V12 – Click above to watch the video after the jump

French automobile and motorcycle builder Lazareth has managed to shoehorn an entire BMW V12 engine into one of his crazy Wazuma quad-like machines. Admittedly, there isn’t much that’s environmentally friendly about a 500-horsepower supercharged V12 engine from BMW that’s powering a rather large and impractical quad platform, so Lazareth has apparently decided to try and give the machine a bit of eco-cred by running the engine on E85.

Why use ethanol in a decidedly performance-minded machine? We’d guess Lazareth is using E85 as a fuel due to its superior octane rating, which allows the engine to run higher compression ratios than with gasoline. If you’re interested in adding an ethanol-burning, V12-powered road rocket to your own personal stable of vehicles, all you need to do is write Lazareth a check for €200,000 ($283,000) and await your delivery. Click past the break for a video of the Wazuma Bio V12 in action.
