Speed is expensive

DVD - 2023

When a Vincent sold at auction for $1.2 million in 2018 it became the most expensive motorcycle in the world. Today, riders such as Jay Leno, Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds collect these beautiful machines. Yet its creator, Philip Vincent, died penniless and living in public housing. The Ewan McGregor-narrated Speed is Expensive is the story of how one man's obsession with speed cost him everything.
