Honda, the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, has announced a new motorcycle – the 750 cc NM4 Vultus – and it's a bold departure from tradition with anime/manga styling, a "fighter pilot" feet-forward riding position, an ultra-low seat and advanced electronic rider assistance to make it easier to ride. This is a motorcycle aimed at the next generation of motorcycle enthusiast raised on video games and a different visual vocabulary. If you are a traditionalist, you'll probably hate it.  Read More

Wearing one of the most revered names in motorsport, the Lotus C-01 certainly looks the pa...

Lotus Motorcycles has released the first images of its new lightweight C-01 superbike, produced by a collaboration of motorsport veterans led by Dr Colin Kolles of Kodewa, with support from the Holzer Group, all under license from Group Lotus plc. The bodywork has been crafted by Daniel Simon while the bike's geometry and construction is the work of Holzer, a company that has had a hand in designing several Moto One and Moto Two world championship motorcycles, not to mention F1 and LMP2 cars. So apart from the name that carries so much gravitas, the team behind it comes with serious credibility too. The 180 kg Lotus C-01 is powered by a 200 hp, 75 degree v-twin Rotax motor similar to that used in the KTM RC8R superbike.  Read More

While the pursuit to develop flying cars and Star Warsian land-speeders rages on, the dilemma around developing a functioning underwater vehicle was solved decades ago … by the British Secret Service's Q Branch. In the film The Spy Who Loved Me, James Bond escapes from the obligatory horde of bad guys by driving one very versatile white Lotus Esprit into the ocean. That fully submersible vehicle, is now set to go to auction this September.  Read More

After the pomp and civility of the New York Auto Show, it’s nice for automotive manufacturers to take a break, get some air, break 265 mph, hit the spa, etc. And so it would be that on a bleak Californian airstrip, that some brave individual in a very much modified machine would hurtle himself down an airforce grade runway to a speed of 265.7 mph (426.7 km/h), making the Hennessey Venom GT the fastest production car on the planet.  Read More

MINDDRIVE mentors and 15 at-risk students converted a 1977 Lotus Esprit to electric-only d...

Around this time last year, a non-profit after school program for at-risk high school students in the Kansas City area called MINDDRIVE took delivery of a donated 1977 Lotus Esprit. Students from five different schools in the area spent every Saturday for the next five months converting the iconic sportscar into a two-seater electric vehicle. Students and mentors then drove the car coast-to-coast across America, making presentations and giving interviews to local media at every charging stop along the way. The epic journey was captured on camera and the organization is now looking to produce a documentary, turning to crowd-funding platform Indiegogo for help.  Read More
