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." Written with the full cooperation of Chapman's widow and Lotus Company, and reissued to meet continuing public interest, this is the definitive biography of the brilliant engineer. All of Chapman's creations are examined, including the original Lotus Elites, Elans and Europas of the early 1960s; the Eclat and the mid-engine Esprit; and the Lotus Grand Prix cars that became world-famous, winning seven constructors' and six drivers' World Championships.
