Admin Topics 119

The designer behind the fictional light cycles in Tron: Legacy and the bubbleship flown by Tom Cruise in Oblivion is making a real-world motorcycle, the first produced under the Lotus marque.

The Lotus Motorcycles C-01, described by the creators as a “hyperbike,” is the creation of former Bugatti Automobiles designer Daniel Simon and Germany’s Kodewa racing team, who have licensed the U.K. sports-car manufacturer’s name. Holzer Group will carry out the development, production, and assembly of the machine.
