Inside the innovator
By: Karl Ludvigsen
Foreword: Emerson Fittipaldi
Colin Chapman was one of the greatest ever creative forces in the automotive world but he left behind a mixed legacy.
Was he an unparalleled innovator who advanced the state of the art of sports and racing cars?
Or was he an uninhibited exploiter of the unaccredited ideas of others?
In death as well as life Colin Chapman excites fevered debate about his achievements and methods.
Now Karl Ludvigsen gets to grips with the legend, digging deep beneath the skin of Chapman and his cars to explore and expose the motivations that drove this mercurial genius.
