COSWORTH DFV 3.0 Formula 1 V8 With 155 GP victories the most legendary F1 engine ever built

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

When the Ford- DFV COSWORTH engine made its winning debut at Zandvoort, it revolutionized the sport since one of the concepts behind the Ford- COSWORTH DFV engine was something completely new 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 construction even today. The Ford-COSWORTH DFV engine and its derivatives went on to win 155 Grands Prix. 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 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 R.P.M. from the start, reaching 510 bhp @ 11,200 R.P.M. by the end of its career.

With 155 victories between 1967 and 1983 the COSWORTH DFV is one of the best F1 engines ever produced!

Cosworth starting to get a name by its successes in motorsport. Both in touring cars, Formula classes and rally championships they are hugely successful. Remember the DFV V8, which many F1 car is driven, and there are few cars that have won more rallies than the Escort RS. Many Cosworth engines originated in Ford engines.
