The Williams FW11B was a Formula One car used for the 1987 Formula 1 season. Designed by Patrick Head and Frank Dernie, it was an evolution of the previous season's FW11. The FW11B's most notable feature was the Honda 1.5 Litre V6 turbo engine, one of the most powerful in F1 at the time producing 800 bhp at 12,000rpm and well over 1,000 bhp in qualifying. Added to the engine's power were the aerodynamics, which were also superior to the rest of the field that season. With the excellent driving pairing of Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell it was a force to be reckoned with. The car was an instantly recognisable product of the turbo era of 1980's F1, and powered Nelson Piquet to his 3rd F1 world Championship.
This model has the engine cover as a seperate component which can be removed to reveal the engine and gearbox.
