Speed is Expensive brings to the screen one of the most dramatic stories in automotive history – the rise and fall of designer Philip Vincent.

His motorcycles set more speed records during the 1940s and 50s than any other manufacturer. Some models now sell for over $1 million and owners include Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds.

Yet when Vincent passed away in 1979, he was largely unrecognized, penniless, and living in council housing in West London.
