Cosworth – Performance through engineering


There are not too many motorsports companies out there that truly need no introduction, however Cosworth is that company. The two founders, Mike Costin and Keith Duckworth, (which is where their name stems from), were working together at the Lotus racing team and like most engineers they thought “We can do this better”. Cosworth was founded in 1958 in London with their focus being racing engines and electronics and the rest is history.

Cosworth quickly grew to become one of the world’s leading engine and electronics manufacturers. They have 176 wins in Formula One and are the creators of some of the most iconic engines in history, their legacy is still growing today. Some of the most recognizable cars in history sport the legendary Cosworth badge, such as the Mercedes 190E Evolution or the Ford Escort RS Cosworth. It is a name that speaks volume in both the OEM and motorsport world, and not one to take lightly.

Understanding their legacy and heritage, Cosworth puts tremendous effort and time into designing and producing the highest quality parts on the market for modern cars. For example, the Stage 2 Supercharger kit for the Subaru BRZ and Toyota FRS GT86. From concept to production, they go through each possible variable, and each component to ensure their part provides phenomenal performance and the utmost reliability.  They have thousands of hours on the test bench to guarantee the supercharger is reliable as well as makes the power as advertised under any condition. Everything from the cast and machined one piece aluminum manifold, to the liquid to air intercoolers tucked neatly away inside the manifold, the entire kit is a marvelous piece of engineering.

Cosworth always understood that airflow is critical when it comes to making power, and they have expanded their product line up to include everything from high flow air filters, true cold air intake and even full intake manifolds. It’s almost a shame some of these parts have to be hidden away under the hood as they, by themselves are works of art.  Take the high volume intake manifold for example, beautifully cast from aluminum and machined down for perfect tolerances, but if you could cut open the manifold you would see perfect transitions leading into each runner for optimal flow and balance.

With everything Cosworth has done you would think they would be only about going fast, however you would be wrong. Cosworth is also in the business of making you stop as well. They have a full line-up of brake pads, everything from street to track and you know you can put you confidence in them to bring your car to a quick stop, every time. If your looking for some Cosworth goodies for yourself, and not for your car, they also carry a line of hats, shirts and jackets so you can show your Cosworth pride, anywhere you go.

If you are looking for the absolute best with no compromises, look no further than Cosworth performance parts and accessories.
