Are you sure? you are going to danger zone :) dangerzone

if you really need a RANDOM RANDOM IP, I would add network (maybe flat?)
that would contain a subnet: without DHCP (if such possible, if
not, would contain 2 subnets: and and disable f=port
security for that network. In the image you will use, you will need to
remove cloud-init or add config option, on instance launch, that it would
not autoconfigure network interface according to Cloud assigned IP.

maybe for such task there are better options, such as simple KVM host with
bridged network?
