How would you like an actual Cosworth Formula 1 engine part on your desk or shelf? Well, we have a very limited number of genuine Cosworth Formula 1 water outlet tubes available to purchase. These parts were used on the ear-splitting Cosworth CA engine in 2010.
Cosworth CA Engine
The final Formula 1 engine from Cosworth, codenamed the CA, took all of the knowledge gained from decades of competition in F1 and turned this know-how into probably one of the best Cosworth engines ever. The CA was introduced in 2006 with Williams, and saw Cosworth return to the production of V8 normally aspirated engines that began with the DFV back in 1967. Capable of 20,000 rpm, the CA became the new benchmark for F1 powerplants.
After a brief sabbatical, Cosworth returned to the grid in 2010 with an updated version of the CA. By now the rules had dropped the maximum speed to 18,000 rpm. Nevertheless, the CA2010 engine was still able to produce in excess of 775 bhp. Consequently, the CA2010 was the ideal choice for both Williams and for the three new teams in F1 (Virgin Racing, Lotus Racing and Hispania Racing).
CA2010 Water Outlet Tube
This water outlet tube was secured to the left hand water outlet elbow. It passed the coolant that had been collect from the left and right hand water outlet elbows into the cooling circuit of the chassis, and the coolant was then pushed through the coolant heat exchanger (radiator) housed in the left hand sidepod before being fed back into the engine’s water pump.
This actual tube has a very interesting history, as it was a development part designed & manufactured by Williams for running on the first CA2010 engines that ran prior to the 2010 season. As such, it is an extremely rare engine component!
