Ford Cosworth Zetec V10R Formule 1 Motor
Jacky Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt, Mario Andretti and several other famous drivers became world champions with a Ford Cosworth powerplant in their F1 cars. The last to do so successfully in the V8 era was Michael Schumacher with the famous Benetton Ford in 1995.
The formula 1 engine offered here is a Cosworth built Ford Zetec V10R of the first generation introduced in 1996. Crankshaft and pistons are missing so in jargon this is a dummy engine with racing history. A professionally prepared Inspection Report is present.
Technical specification: 2998 CC V10 in 72 degrees angle, twin cam cylinder heads with 4 valves per cylinder and a maximum speed of 17.000 rpm. The estimated power was around 750 HP but was never officially released by Cosworth.
These 1st generation Ford Cosworth V10 engines were delivered in 1996 exclusively to the Sauber Petronas team with drivers Johnny Herbert and HH Frentzen. In 1997 the new team “Stewart Grand Prix” became the exclusive partner of Ford and the Zetec V10R engines were further developed in close cooperation. The drivers for Stewart Grand Prix were Rubens Barichello and Jan Magnussen.
Although several parts would still be usable for racing, the engine is offered as the ultimate piece of Formula 1 memorabilia. The carbon air intakes are a piece of high tech engineering and the engine is complete with all the important mounting and assembly parts which can be called rare. The Cosworth Zetec V10R comes into its own on the original engine stand and truly deserves the designation “work of art”.I'm interested in this object
