Engine power outputs in Formula One racing are also a fascinating insight into how far the sport has moved on. In the 1950s Formula One cars were managing specific power outputs of around 100 bhp / litre (about what a modern 'performance' road car can manage now). That figure rose steadily until the arrival of the 'turbo age' of 1.5 litre turbo engines, some of which were producing anything up to 750 bhp / litre. Then, once the sport returned to normal aspiration in 1989 that figure fell back, before steadily rising again. The 'power battle' of the last few years has seen outputs creeping back towards the 1000 bhp barrier, some teams producing more than 300 bhp / litre from the current generation of 3 litre engines.
Revving to over 18,000 RPM a modern Formula One engine will consume a phenomenal 650 litres of air every second, with race fuel consumption typically around the 75 l/100 km (4 mpg) mark. Revving at such massive speeds equates to an accelerative force on the pistons of nearly 9000 times gravity. Unsurprisingly, engine failure remains one of the most common causes of retirement in races.

with a 4" bore you would need a 1.45" stroke with a 10 cylinder motor to get to the 3 liter displacement....

i,m sure it was a V12 with the short stroke at the time they said they had test engines over 20,000rpm it might have been over 4 inch bore but i,m sure on the .750 stroke it was not easy to get info but being with a ferrari owner opens a few doors

you would need a 5.05" piston with a .75" stroke even with 12 cylinders to get to the f1 3 litre displacement...

f1 is amazing i found the light weight tools and exotic simple things cool they said it is because each team is allowed only a few thousand pounds in equiptment because they fly it to distant races
