Ultra Rare Lotus C-01 Is Heading To The Auctions

One of the world’s rarest Lotus rides is heading to the auction block – and it only has two wheels. The high-powered Lotus C-01 motorcycle was designed in 2014 by Daniel Simon, the man behind the light cycles of the Tron Legacy film.

With a limited production run of just 100 units, this particular C-01 has never been ridden and features a 200hp KTM 1,195cc V-twin engine complete with six-speed transmission, massive 320mm Brembo brakes and Ohlins suspension.

The bike’s fairings is where things really get wild though with throwback British green adorning the futuristic cafe racer body. Mandatory yellow accents are evident on the gaping intake which makes for an even bolder design statement. To complement a bike of this calibre, all of the panels are crafted from carbon fibre as well as the wheels.
