One of the rarest Lotuses on the road today isn't one of their beloved performance cars, it's the ridiculously high-powered C-01 motorcycle. One of the only known models to exist in America, this C-01 is heading to the Mecum Auctions in Monterey and its going to go for a pretty penny.

Designed by Daniel Simon, the designer who created Tron Legacy's lightcycles, the bike is one of 100 bikes produced and has never been ridden. Powering the bike is a 175 hp KTM 1195cc V-twin liquid cooled engine with a six-speed transmission. It also features 320mm Brembo racing brakes, an Ohlins rear suspension, Sachs forks, and a carbon fiber shell and carbon fiber wheels.
