In 2015 Paul G. Maloney, a man of considerable experience in the fields Moto GP , F1 and WSBK as an engineer, gathered a team in Melbourne to meld a pair of Yamaha YZF-R1 engines into an extremely compact V8 of almost 2000cc. The result was an attractive beast capable of melting the paint off almost anything, with the possible exception of an RAAF Hornet.
Specification include 334 hp @ 12,800 rpm from the 40 valve engine, carbon fibre frame, Öhlins suspension front and rear, with state of the art brakes, wheels and tyres.
