It is very good looking but for me that's it really. I love that it exists but as a car it's not fast enough, uses too much fuel and has a horrible driving position.

Also people choosing the R26.R but do you not think the new Trophy-R devalues it a bit.


No,not at all. Besides this thread isn't about value etc.


I didn't mean value as in £££s I meant it's "car geek" value.

I know, that's why I put the etc... at the end Wink
The 'original' Williams is more sought after than the 2 or 3.

Good point.

An F40 is more dribbled over than an F50.

But it's not always the first that is more sort after.

Time will tell......

I always find things like this fascinating. Is it the first or the last/latest version that is more sought after? The V6 is a good example of the second version being lusted after more. Gen 2 of most Porsche GT3/RS cars, Integrale EVO 2, as well, but I reckon most first examples will be ultimately more collectible as time goes on I think

It depends on whether the 2nd is cashing in on the firsts success or genuinely improving on it.

Think Terminator 2, that's a 250 GTO.

The Golf GTI of the 90s is Matrix Revolutions.

Until the Trophy / Trophy-R come out, my choice would be...

R26.R - simply amazing car
V6 Mk1 - the Mk2 got a bit too sensible ;)
172 Mk1 - where it all began (for the RS badged hatches that is)

But not with a 5 Turbo (mid engine ). Surprised to see some say a Turbo 2. The 1 has to be the derivative to pick

Anyway I was just trying to say I prefer the new stripped out nutter to the old one.

For me it leaves less to be improved upon.

182 Trophy still the best though!
