Motorcycle News
Lotus has licensed its name for this 200 HP superbike.

Motorcycle News is reporting that Lotus, the beloved sportscar manufacturer that launched a thousand acronymic reliability jokes--"L.O.T.U.S, Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious"--has lent its name to a 200 HP, V-twin-powered superbike that is to be manufactured by a new company. While it does wear a lovely JPS-style livery, it's not clear where the lightness has been added or if it's been simplified.



Chevrolet
The 2015 Corvette Z06 may not be the last C7 Z06 that Chevy brings to market.

Jalopnik's Patrick George is reporting that Chevrolet might finally build that stripped-down, track only Corvette Z06 they've been whispering about. If they did, it might be called the Z06X, with the "X" standing for Xenopus which is an African clawed frog.



Petrolicious
Drew Leigh is living a BMW fan's dream. He's got an E36 M3 and an E28 M5.

Finally, Petrolicious has this look at Drew Leigh's E36 M3 and E28 M5. You may know Drew from his excellent Motoring Con Brio website. And if you don't know, now you know, buddy.
