Williams updated the FW08 for the 1983 Formula One season to become the FW08C. Under new regulations all ground effect were out and flat bottom cars were in, meaning nearly all the cars in Formula One had to be heavily modified or replaced and the FW08 was no exception.
Against the turbo cars of Renault, Brabham and Ferrari, Williams were not expected to do as well as they did. Rosberg opened the season with pole position at the Brazilian Grand Prix (the last for a Cosworth engined car) and scored the car's last win at the 1983 Monaco Grand Prix. He would eventually finish fifth in the Drivers' Championship, while Williams finished 1983 in fourth place, the best of the Cosworth-powered cars.
The FW08C also has the distinction of being the first Formula One car ever driven by Ayrton Senna, at Donington Park in July 1983.
Our iconic car #11 is a highly desirable World Championship winning Patrick Head designed Williams, which remains highly competitive ready for the 2018 season.
This car is complete and fully operational in non-ground effect specification fitted with the period correct DFV.
