    If you’re a frequent visitor to TopGear.com, you might be aware of the faintly terrifying fabrications of one Ludovic Lazareth. The man is a bit of a hero, creating properly bonkers car and motorbike amalgamations – see here and here for reference.

    It’s not just wild four-wheeled bikes that his company – Lazareth Auto-Moto – deals in though. Back in 2017 it announced plans to build a run of amphibious cars based on short-wheelbase versions of the Mini Moke. Because why not?

    Recently though, the story goes that one of the prototype Moke body shells was lying around on the factory floor along with, conveniently, a 4.7-litre Maserati V8 engine. You can see where this is going can’t you?

    Yep, scroll through the pictures above and you’ll see what really is a two-seat Mini Moke with 454bhp and 383lb ft of torque. Crikey.
