Ford Cosworth DFV 3.0 V8 Scale Engine
The story behind this working 1:3 scale Ford Cosworth DFV engine is that it was time to give car and F1 enthusiasts the opportunity to acquire a working scale model engine. So, the constructors came to the plan to build a real function engine in a size what you can place on your desk - and off course it had to run. They wanted a classic and iconic engine and finally they have chosen the Ford Cosworth DFV F1 engine. It took over 3 years to work it all out in solid works, to have the molds made for making all casted parts, to produce all other machined parts and including all bolts and nuts. Finally, the engine is made of about 1’200 parts. To assemble and fully adjust one engine it takes more than 50 hours. The engine has a capacity of 76cc can rev up to 10’000 and produces about 9hp @ 9’000 RPM and off course it sounds like a true V8, the sound is music to your ears! It runs on methanol same as the radio-controlled airplanes/cars and the weight is about 13 kg including the bottom plate. Limited production only - so make sure to not miss this opportunity!
