New Williams FW37 and McLaren 650S, and the Life L190 W12 ...

The first 2015 Formula 1 car to break cover is the Williams FW37 Mercedes of which the first images and details were released this morning. Very much a development of the successful FW36 used in 2014, the new Williams, as expected, boasts a much more subtle nose. The long and rather ugly point is now replaced by a shorter 'thumb' nose as a result of the changes to the regulations. Like last year's Williams, the FW37 will be powered by the very potent Mercedes-Benz engine. The car's first public appearance will be at the Jerez official test, which starts on February 1st.
To celebrate the legendary debut victory of the McLaren F1 GTR at Le Mans, 20 years ago this year, the McLaren Special Operations has launched the limited edition McLaren 650S Le Mans. Created together with the F1's original stylist Peter Stevens, the exclusive model features many subtle cues that remind of the Le Mans winner. These range from the special wheels to a faux air-intake scoop on the roof. Available later this year, the 650S Le Mans will be limited to just 50 examples. As part of the package, buyers will be able to join McLaren at Le Mans this year for a special celebration.
With the class of 2015 due to be revealed in the coming two weeks, we today take a look at a most memorable Formula 1 car of old; the Life L190. It is memorable for all the wrong reasons and is generally considered as one of the worst F1 cars of all time. Built on a discarded, year-old chassis, the Life served as a vehicle to promote the W12 engine originally designed by former Ferrari man Franco Rocchi and marketed at the time by Ernesto Vita. We have chronicled the colourful story of the car and engine in article illustrated by a 15-shot gallery of the unique car in action at Goodwood a few years ago.
