Over Here Quad Bikes Are Getting More Popular,

a few years ago none were around but now it is common to see several everyday when out and about,

so I am looking forward to seeing one of these, it is a Wazuma V8F a Ferrari engined prototype quad bike, built for the track I am sure it is only a matter of time before a Thai entrepreneur makes a copy for the roads of Thailand, Wazuma is powered by a Ferrari 3.0L V8, developing 250 hp for a vehicle weighing less than 650kg, it promises startling performance, the 6 speed sequential gearbox comes from a BMW M3 and is controlled from the handlebars, but there is also a road version,

the Wazuma R1 but of course poorer performance the road version developing only 182hp at 12 500rpm, a top speed: 250km is promised and it goes from 0 to 100km/h in 4.1seconds, now crunch time, the V8 Ferrari version is yours for a cool € 200,000, (£167,646), where as the road and admittedly slower version is yours for just € 49,900 (£41,827), I wonder if some one will get one for Christmas?
