Film: Secret Life of Colin Chapman

“Definitely a genius, allegedly a rogue:” The Secret Life of Colin Chapman

What exactly was the connection between Colin Chapman’s Lotus and John DeLorean’s DMC? How did Chapman keep Lotus going financially — and personally — in the years before his death? Through interviews with people close to him, this British documentary from the Nineties examines his life, career, business ties, and even his skirting of racing rules.

I caught this on Youtube last month. Found it interesting, if a little tabloidish.
