IIRC it was one of the first bikes to have been designed at least in part with a wind tunnel, and with only a single seat/chain stay was pretty novel at the time. I seem to remember it featuring on "Tomorrows World"
p.s. Sorry for showing my age :$

Lotus model 108 - Boardman rode it to Gold in 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. Production model was 110
These bikes are now banned under UCI rules

The superman position used by Boardman on the bikes was banned by the UCI and the UCI would not allow the design today. I have tried to buy one but it went to Japan for a higher bid. A second hand production model will cost you about 7k if you can find one. Of course, being carbon it can crack and fall apart if it has been crashed.
