Legendary car maker Lotus has produced a long line of exotic sports cars as beautiful as they are fast, but never motorcycles. Until now, that is. The company's first foray into two-wheeled transportation is a work of art—the Lotus Motorcycle C-01.

Created by genius designer Daniel Simon and developed by Germany's Kodewa Performance Motorcycles, this 200 HP V-Twin incorporates carbon fiber, titanium, and aerospace quality steel into its frame. What's more, the bike can be extensively customized to match your taste and riding style. But buyers beware: Only 100 units of the C-01 will be produced.
