Almost, the 16v is the 1.8 @ 137bhp, the Williams is 2.0 @ 150bhp. Think they are the same F16ie engine, just different capacities. The difference to 60 is minimal though, like 3 seconds. The 16v is rapid for what it is, think the insurance group is about 12 whereas the Williams is G17, also the Williams are a lot rarer and carry a significant price premium over the 16v. For the difference in price, it's not worth it, unless you simply want the Williams for the looks and slight performance advantage and have a bit of money to burn.

And you know I love this Sean lol!
