Lotus roars into Motorcycle Market revealing Stunning C-01 Superbike

18 Posted by - February 25, 2014 - Design

For those who don’t know, Lotus is a British manufacturer of sports and racing cars, so the news that it is entering the motorcycle business, something not many auto manufacturers do, is great news! Lotus recently revealed the design of the bike, and it’s flawless! The superbike was designed by Daniel Simon. For those unfamiliar with that name, he designed many of the movie vehicles for films such as Captain America and Tron Legacy. If that’s not impressive enough for you, he has also designed for supercar manufacturers Bugatti and Lamborghini.

The motorbike is made of several materials including carbon, titanium and aerospace quality steel, which are also used on Formula 1 cars, and will be powered by a 200 horsepower engine, approximately.

Only 100 will be produced, and Lotus has yet to reveal the price.
