Cosworth is planning to introduce a new and revolutionary engine in the automotive industry, remedy which might make its way on the final production version of a car.
Known worldwide for preparing and delivering powerful engines, Cosworth is now planning to take its games to a whole new level. According to the guys at Piston Heads, the new engine, which will be signed by Cosworth, will get 1.6 liters in displacement which will produce a whopping 480 HP. This means that the unit is able to provide 300 HP. The engine is expected to make its way under the hood of a street legal car, in a world premiere.
The secret behind this impressive engine is coming from Formula 1, when the British based company was preparing for the event, and rumors were saying that a four-cylinder inline unit will be the next step. The new engine was prepared for the impressive Jaguar C-X75, which won’t be produced, after Cosworth found out that it won’t be able to use it in Formula 1. The announcement has been made by Andy Ball, the Cosworth chief engineer. The company’s future customers remain unknown for the moment but it is certain that several carmakers are currently negotiating with Cosworth.
