The Lotus C-01 was revealed as a 3D computer mockup in 2013, and the world was stunned by its combination of a radical body shape with the legendary Lotus name, never previously associated with motorcycles. The concept was sketched out by former Bugatti designer Daniel Simon, who is best known in the 2-wheel world for the Tron Legacy Lightcycle. Press and Internet observers were further stunned in 2014 to see the computer model had actually been built in a form very close to the fantasy—a rare occurrence with computer concepts.
