Williams Wednesday with an FW14B headed for auction ...

One of the all-time great Grand Prix cars is the Williams FW14B. Raced during the 1992 season, it was the first World Championship winning Formula 1 machine penned by the now legendary Adrian Newey. Effectively an interim car that was developed from the 1991 FW14, it combined the Newey's very effective aerodynamics with a sophisticated active suspension system and Renault's powerful V10 engine. The FW14B proved so fast in testing that the FW15 planned for 1992 was never raced. In the hands of Nigel Mansell, the FW14B was particularly successful and he was crowned World Champion after just 11 of the 16 rounds during the 1992 season. Such was his dominance that Mansell qualified a full three seconds faster than Ayrton Senna in a McLaren. At next week's Bonhams Goodwood Festival of Speed sale, you have the opportunity to acquire a fully functional example. The chassis is offered by its first private owner and was driven to pole position and victory by Mansell in the first five races of the 1992 season. We have also highlighted FW14-6, which was the development and test car. It has recently been meticulously restored by Williams Heritage and demonstrated at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
BMW's Motorsport department have offered a glimpse at the future with the Vision M NEXT. Equipped with a 591 bhp hybrid system, the striking coupe can accelerate to 100 km/h in 3 seconds. We will get a chance to take a more detailed look at the Vision M NEXT as it will star in the Chantilly Arts & Elegance show on Sunday.
