That's the Renault way, add a couple of well placed 'Williams' badges and some Recaros with Williams embroidered on them,
and they'll whack a few grand onto the price of a new 200 and boom, another 'limited addition'.
i dont see how any 200 being 'limited edition' can feel special, imo there's just way to many of them now and dont see how one is better than the other. renault got it right with the 182 having just the 'trophy' as a 'limited edition'
It wont be N/A and 240bhp, they just cant reliably get that power out of the F4R, maybe they will do an F4RT one but it seems highly unlikely, thats probably just a rubbish motoring journo who doesnt know much about engines getting carried away when asked to fabricate a story with basically no available facts yet.
Last time though the williams did have an uprated box, bigger engine, more power, more torque, wider track etc.
Ie it was a genuine and noticeable improvement on the car it was based on.
I really hope they stick to that level of commitment to making it an epic little car if they do go ahead with it.
It's either going to be epic, slightly bigger engine (don't think they can actually bore the F4R out enough to make it worthwhile, and a few other tasty handling choices (fingers crossed they don't decide to fit bigger wheels).
Or it's going to be mega s**t, basically a FF 200 with a plaque and in blue.
