The Polyphony001 is a Formula One-styled car available in the PAL version of Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec. It is the PAL counterpart to F094/S (based on 1994 Williams FW16), but with a higher nose first used in 1995 FW17. The car is one of only two Formula One style cars in the PAL version, which are among the best in the game in terms of acceleration and grip.

  • Internally, the car is named "williams_fw16a", alluding to the base car, although Williams never used the "A" suffix to denote first revision of their Formula One cars; the car was assigned with this internal name, as it used F094/S' livery and physics data.
