    David Guetta turns F1 racer in Dangerous video clip (VIDEO)

    Lotus F1 team

    Lotus F1 team and Romain Grosjean team up with DJ David Guetta for new music video.

    Music videos these days are becoming ridiculous quite frankly. Look up Anaconda by Niki Minaj – or don’t and save yourself three minutes of wondering how one’s bottom becomes so disproportionately large. There’s no real story line or meaning behind the video, it’s all about getting attention and for all the wrong reasons.

    Anyway, we’ve got slightly off topic here. Because, French DJ David Guetta has a new music video out and it’s about F1 racing – or at least it seems to be, Lotus F1 driver Romain Grosjean drives his race car in it and everything! Predictably, teammate Pastor Maldonado does not feature in the clip, presumably he crashed his car in practice before filming begun.

    Anyway, enough rambling, check out the video!

    Lotus C-01 Superbike Is A Carbon Fiber Dream (PHOTOS)

    Lotus C-01 superbike

    Nearly a year ago, Lotus announced the launch of its new motorcycle division, with a teaser image showing the carbon fiber tank of its C-01 superbike. Today, we have the official unveiling of the real thing, and it’s stunning.

    Employing all of Lotus’ lessons learned from racing on four wheels, and adding in the expertise of the Holzer Group and Kodewa, the C-01 is a masterwork of lightness and form-follows-function design. It’s also packing some darned impressive specs.

    A 75-degree V-twin displacing 1,195 cc puts out 200 horsepower, powering the rear-wheel through a six-speed jaw-type transmission and hydraulic clutch. Electronic engine management with digital ignition adjustment ensures optimum performance. Inverted forks, twin suspension struts, a steel/carbon/titanium fame, twin front disc brake and single rear disc, and an aggressive frame/suspension geometry complete the high-performance package.

    Lotus plans to offer the C-01 in a range of liveries honoring the company’s four-wheeled racing heritage, as well as a fully-customizable ordering process. Only 100 examples will be built, so don’t expect these superbikes to be within reach of most mortals.

    Right now, only the prototypes exist, but the C-01 is certified for road use and ready for ordering. If you’d like to get your name on the list, get in touch with Lotus Motorcycles.
