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.

About the Author:

Gérard ‘Jabby' Crombac was a close friend of Colin Chapman throughout his life, having bought one of the earliest Lotus Mark VI sports cars in 1953. In 1954 he founded the Paris-based magazine Sport Auto and eventually sold it in the late 1970s, having been its editor throughout. He remained an active Formula 1 journalist until 2003 and died in 2005.
