Bike Lazareth LMV 496 equipped with four jet turbines
Firm Lazareth Auto-Moto from the French Annecy-le-Vieux showed a teaser of a flying motorcycle, details of which is going to reveal on January 31 next year. The novelty is based on custom LM847 and is equipped with jet turbines manufactured by German JetCat.
Judging by the roller, Lazareth LMV 496 is equipped with twin wheels with separate pendulums, which can automatically be transferred from a vertical position to a horizontal one. A turbine is installed in the center of each wheel, allowing the hoverbike to leave the ground. Details about the technical side of the project, including how the engineers managed to integrate the turbines into the wheel hubs, are not reported, but it is known that the LMV 496 can move like a regular motorcycle.
Taken as a basis for La Moto Volante (flying motorcycle), the Lazareth LM847 is released in a limited edition of 10 copies. It is equipped with a 4.7-liter V8 Maserati, whose power is 470 horsepower and 490 Nm of torque.
