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).
The CA2010 engine was raced for four season, bowing out at the end of 2013 after powering the rebranded Marussia team.
