Assume the Lotus Position

For most of us, when we think of Lotus vehicles, the first thing that comes to mind are the Esprit models from the James Bond movies The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and For Your Eyes Only (1981).

For Your Eyes Only

The Spy Who Loved Me

 

 

 

 

 

 

Car aficionados will also be familiar with the Lotus name as racing legends.

Now, Lotus is moving in a new direction, as the company has begun production on a limited edition motorcycle.

The bike is a three way partner ship between Lotus (branding), designer Daniel Simon and the Koweda racing team, and manufactured by the Holzer Group.

The C-01 will be available in a range of liveries some of which pay homage to Lotus’ sporting pedigree. A customisation service is also available, limited only by the imagination of the client. With an exclusive production run of just 100 units, superbike collectors and fans of the Lotus brand will need to move fast to secure one.

The original idea to create the C-01 came from Kodewa’s Dr Colin Kolles. Speaking about the project he said: “We set out to create a bike that isn’t just great to ride but also represents a piece of art in motion. Over the years I have seen my fair share of style over substance, what this bike brings to the market is a unique combination of both: state of the art technology with a truly jaw-dropping aesthetic.”

Feast your eyes on a work of art on two wheels.

No word yet on pricing, but I can’t imagine it will be cheap. And for those who care, the technical specs are here.
