Ford Cosworth DFV #2# The inside story of F1's greatest engine

by Andrew Noakes

The Ford-Cosworth DFV dominated Formula One in the 1970s, winning 155 Grands Prix races in a 17-year career. In the mid-1970s its turbocharged DFX derivative took over as the most popular and most successful engine in USAC/CART racing. The DFV series of engines also won in endurance racing, hillclimbing and Formula 3000, and returned to F1 for a final fling in 1987.

This book tells the story of a remarkable family of engines. It is packed with technical detail, anecdotes and interviews, supported by a wealth of archive photography from the DFV's long and successful career in motorsport, with comprehensive appendices listing every World Championship and Indycar race win.
