Lotus - The Complete Story

From the Mark 1 in 1948 to the World's most powerful electric hypercar - the Evija - in 2021, the story of the Lotus marque encompasses ongoing technical innovation on road and track.
With seventy-four F1 Grand Prix wins, six Drivers' and seven Constructors' F1 World Championships chalked up over seven hectic decades, Lotus consolidated its reputation in racing while at the same time creating some of the World's most stylish and desirable sportscars and Grand Tourers, in-house as well as for global automotive clients via its Lotus Engineering consultancy.

With over 380 photographs, this book includes:
- the origins of the business, creating Austin 7-based competition cars;
- the metamorphosis from sports-racing cars to F1 - and seven World titles;
- factory relocations, from Hornsey to Cheshunt to Hethel;
- the road cars: the Elite, Elan, Europa, Excel, Esprit, Elise, Exige and Evora;
- how sponsorship transformed traditional British Racing Green into Gold Leaf and JPS livery.
There are also interviews with key Lotus personnel and drivers.

Colin Chapman Wayward Genius

Colin Chapman was the most charismatic and brilliant engineer in the history of motor racing. His innovative designs revolutionized the layout of the grand prix car. He played a key role in the establishment of the British motor racing industry which now leads the world.
Through his Lotus company he not only dominated Formula 1 racing but also made an extraordinary contribution to the development of the sportscar with the Elite and the Elan.

Mike Lawrence's biography of this remarkable man recalls his achievements, but it also delves into the dark side of his genius. Chapman's triumphs in the 1960s and 1970s have never been equalled world championships in Formula 1, a succession of grand prix victories and triumph at the Indianapolis 500. He also formed famous partnerships with exceptional drivers like Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi, Ronnie Peterson, Nigel Mansell and Mario Andretti.

The Lotus single seaters that brought them such success, the 25, the 49, the 72 and the 79 are now regarded as milestones in the evolution of the racing car. Yet Chapman's abrasive character, drive for success and unorthodox business methods clouded his reputation.

Mike Lawrence looks in detail at this aspect of Chapman's history and gives a revealing account of the tangled financial arrangements that kept Chapman, and Lotus, afloat. He shows, too, how Chapman operated in a fast moving, highly pressurized world of international racing and car making that generated huge rewards and temptations.
The crunch came when he became involved with John Z. Delorean, the American entrepreneur who found the ill-fated Delorean car company.
