    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    I seem to remember that when Williams used a Renault F1 engine, there was also a Williams special edition of the Renault Clio (or its predecessor, Renault 5).

    I'm sure that was an exciting automobile too. (Yawn).

    Oh, yeah, the Renault Clio Williams, a 150HP version of the Clio 16valve hatchback.

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    Fritz man,
    You'd be surprised, I'm serious.
    The Clio Williams was a great little Hatch.
    Very good car, amongst its category of course;)

    Fanch,

    I'm sure you're right. But don't you also think that the "Williams" name would have looked better gracing a later equivalent of that wild-child mid-engined Renault 5 Turbo?
    In the same way, the name is now being "wasted" on a middle-of-the-road BMW.

    At least McLaren could claim to have believed they were getting involved in an exotic sporting supercar at the beginning of the SLR project.

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    yeah good point here I admit.
    But Williams was partnered with Renault at the time, so not much choice for the brand I'm afraid. Still a nice car though.
    As for the beemer, it would have been better if it was the CSL or even a completely new model like a supercar or something.

    My thinking exactly. As it is, they've "cheapened" the name "Williams" just to help move 25 M3's, whose spec does not in any way suggest that the F1 team needed to be involved in developing the car.

    Gauss: I don't think it is rediculous to point out a cheap, pointless marketing ploy for being what it is.

    Reminds the a little bit of the Boxster and 911 Anniversary editions.

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    Marketing ny friend, marketing
    But it works, because people like me actually like the Boxster S spyder edition, although 6 hp increase is really a joke
    You make it at least 15 or nothing... But the cocoa leather with the cocoa top look great IMO. But I'll keep the C4C for now thank you very much

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    The interior is absolutely hideous!

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    Haven't seen it in real I must admit, but I'm also ready to admit that I am a man of great style whereas you have terrible tastes Christian

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    I was talking of the M3 of course!!!!!!!!

    The Cocoa brown in the Boxster is very tasteful.

    Re: Williams F1 BMW M3

    Oooops, sorry dude!
    Then again, you'll soon be the proud owner of a CGT soon, so your taste is pretty much spot on I must say.

    Are we talking about a color or a flavor here?
