9780850597332: Colin Chapman: The Man and His Cars

This authorized biography explores the life and achievements of one of the most celebrated automotive designers.

From penniless beginnings as an engineering student in North London, Colin Chapman went on to build the world-famous Lotus car company and establish himself, in Jackie Stewart's words, as the 'most creative designer of racing cars in the history of motor racing.' Originally published in 1986 and written with the full cooperation of Chapman's widow and Lotus, this is the definitive biography of the brilliant engineer. All of Chapman's creations are examined, including all of the Lotus grand prix cars that became world-famous, winning seven constructors' and six drivers' World Championships.
