With 155 GP victories between 1967 and 1983, the most legendary F1 engine ever built.

The first Cosworth DFV F1 engine was unveiled in April 1967, and won the first race it competed: the Dutch Grand Prix on 4th June 1967.
The engine was developed and designed by Keith Duckworth who founded Cosworth together with Mike Costin in 1958. The engine went on becoming the most successful Grand Prix engine of all time.

When the Ford-Cosworth DFV engine made its winning debut at Zandvoort in 1967, it revolutionized the sport by introducing a completely new concept to the Grand Prix world. For the first time, the idea of the engine forming a structural part of a Formula One car was introduced, an idea that remains fundamental to Formula One even today.

The Ford-Cosworth DFV engine and its derivatives went on to win 155 Grands Prix. It dominated F1 racing for a long time, the final win came as late as 1983, when Keke Rosberg claimed victory in the Monaco Grand Prix, just before Formula One entered the turbo era in the mid 1980's.

When it was first developed in 1967, the engine was a 2.993cc V8 with a bore x stroke of 85.67 x 64.897 mm, producing over 400 bhp@ 9,000 RPM. By the end of its career, the engine even reached 510 bhp@ 11,200 RPM.

A true masterpiece!

This impressive, fully functioning scale model engine with a capacity of 76cc is made from more than 1200 parts combined, and this wonderful sounding high revving little V8 can rev up to 10,000 RPM producing about 7 bhp.

All components of the engine are made in The Netherlands utilizing the best companies The Netherlands has to offer. “Top quality” was the utmost priority during the entire development stage. All parts went through rigorous testing, not only for performance but aesthetics too, the engine has even titanium valves!

Before delivery, each engine is tested for about one hour to ensure proper break-in of the piston rings and liners. During this period, each carburetors is also fully adjusted for optimal performance.

Dimensions of the engine, including gearbox and exhaust, are: Length 39cm, Height 19cm and 24cm Width. It weighs 14kg including its aluminum stand.

The full engine set includes a original mini Snap-on toolbox with tools, starter kit which consist of a little fuel tank, tank for coolant, 12V power supply for the starter motor, temperature and battery voltage gauges and a starter button.

Built to win..

The engine features titanium valves, 7075 billet aluminum connecting rods 7075 billet aluminium pistons, piston rings, 16 casted parts, 8 working carburettors which look like the fuel injection system from its big brother, real working water pump and so on. Its happy to run and sounds magnificent!
