Grab the cross and lets crusify him guys!!!!
Cosworth concentrates on aerospace machining, engineering services, race engine design consulting, oem engine and drivetrain development, and of course, performance parts for road cars.
They have been doing so since the late 50s.
They do from F1 engines to Indycar engines to heads for alot of famous production cars such as Lotus, Mercedes, etc.
Their most famous cars are as follows:
Mercedes 190E 2,5-16
Mercedes E500 w124
Ford Sierra Cosworth
Ford Escort Cosworth
Ford BDA Mexico
Opel Ascona and Manta 400
Opel astra GSi
Opel Calibra (both NA and Turbo)
Red Bull F1
Aston Martin DB9
Others include Saab and Audi
Their most famous engine is the YB that was designed for Ford and in some cases developed 600+bhp from 2ltr in turbo trim, and 220+bhp in NA form.
In my view however the BDA was the best as in RS200 trim it was capable of 700+bhp from what essentialy was a 1.8 engine (although later grew to 2.1 i believe)
