The purebred circuit-racing developments of the front-wheel-drive, five-door, left-hand driving position, Renault Laguna production touring car. Each car features a fully race-prepared Renault/Sodemo water-cooled, in-line, four-cylinder, DOHC, 16-valve engine with iron block and alloy head. The 1,998cc engine is transverse-mounted, and features a Sodemo electronic management system and drives through a specially-developed Williams/Hewland six-speed and reverse sequential-change gearbox. Drive is via an AP Racing twin-plate carbon clutch. Race-developed front suspension is by MacPherson strut, rear suspension by trailing arms, with torsion bar springing. The springs are by Eibach, and the suspension systems feature driver-adjustable anti-roll bars both front and rear, and Williams/Penske shock absorbers. The braking system is by AP Racing, with twin four-piston calipers, and water cooling. Steering is by a Renault power-assisted rack-and-pinion system. Instrumentation and data logging equipment is by Williams/Magneti Marelli, and the OZ Racing lightweight road wheels are shod with Michelin racing tyres.

These two now classic British Touring Car Championship factory team cars are offered here as viewed, last prepared by Williams personnel at the Grove factory for customer sale some two years ago.
