Mini V8M

French company Lazareth Auto-Moto, known for the LMV 496 flying motorcycle, showed a Mini Moke restmode. It is fitted with a Maseratti engine under the hood.

Back in 2017, Lazareth Auto-Moto announced that it was going to build several amphibians, the basis of which would be a short-base Mini Moke. The project, apparently, did not find a continuation, but one of the finished bodies was adapted for the restomode.

Under the hood is a 4.7-liter V8 from Maserati GranTurismo is installed, giving out 460 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque. In addition, the Italian coupe shared with Moke a robotic transmission.

The authors of the project do not provide any technical data. However, it is known that the prototype weighs only 850 kilograms. This means it has 541 forces per ton – two times more than GranTurismo, which takes 4.7 seconds to accelerate to 62 mph (ca. 100 km/h).
