LOTUS: Victory by Design features cars from Classic Team Lotus owned by Clive Chapman, the son of Lotus founder Colin Chapman.

The programme also includes Colin Chapman's very first Lotus and many others of the finest examples of the marque that are now housed in the world's largest Lotus collection at the Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum in Birmingham, Alabama. DVD Extra: A private tour of the world's largest collection of Grand Prix cars.
Victory By Design is a landmark award winning documentary series, which profiles the most important examples of iconic motoring marques.
Programmes cover Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Ford, Lotus, Corvette, and some of the most important grand prix cars ever built in Grand Prix Greats, all shot in international locations: driven and presented by race car expert Alain De Cadenet with the result that presenter de Cadenet has now probably driven more important race cars than anybody alive today.
The programmes are all action, with minimal archive and interviews, relying on the action of the cars to tell the story. Individual cars are the most authentic of their type, rarely seen and often come from private collections and museums.
The programmes are produced by Gemini Pictures and directed by feature film and documentary filmmaker Tony Maylam (White Rock, Across the Lake, a Fast Drive In The Country).
