Team Lotus ex Works DFV pistons
Lotus and the Ford Cosworth DFV engine are inextricably linked.
Colin Chapman, Keith Duckworth and Mike Costin worked together to create the greatest engine motor sport has ever seen. The DFV powered F1 cars from 1967 to 1985, an astonishing 19 seasons in the rarified atmosphere of Grand Prix where innovation was king and one season’s World beater would be next season’s backmarker.
In the 70s and 80s the team was in the habit of keeping the pistons from rebuilds to use as VIP gifts. Each engine’s pistons were labeled and stored; not all were presented.
With reference to the team’s archives we are able to identify the detail competition history for the engines in which the pistons ran. A great deal of polishing, then mounting on a wooden plinth, complete with presentation plaque, makes a rather special item of memorabilia.
Like all good things, this product is coming to an end. We shall soon be sold out and therefore, will no longer be available - don't miss out!
