A pair of purportedly leaked images may have given two-wheeler fans a first look at the promised Lotus C-01, due this year.

According to website Motorcycle News (MCN), these revealing shots have come directly from a source inside Lotus.

Boasting a wild new take on the classic and ‘cafe racer’ style popular with enthusiasts, the C-01’s look is the work of ex-Volkswagen Group designer Daniel Simon.

Simon is also understood to have looked to the hero Lotus 49 race car for styling inspiration.

Packed under the retro-futuristic styling will be a host of modern performance and safety technologies, developed by racing outfit Kodewa and tuning specialists Holzer Group.

This muscly meataxe of a motorbike is understood to be powered by a 149kW (200hp) V-twin engine, motivating a package that includes a liberal use of carbon fibre and titanium.

The C-01 is expected to make its official debut sometime in 2014, although Lotus remains tight-lipped on exact timing.
