Formula 1 has recently introduced the new engine that will be used this year. And boy, it is really quite jaw-dropping!

The all new, turbocharged 1.6 liter V6 engine is also a hybrid-electric engine. This comes after the immense pressure that Formula 1 and all of it’s affiliates have been under recently to make the competition (including the cars, obviously) more ‘green’ and environmentally friendly. 

However, this doesn’t mean that the new engine is wimpy. No ways, it is still one hell of a engine.

Even though F1 drivers had to downsize their engines from 2.4 liters to 1.6, this engine produces a mammoth 760 horsepower. In order to be more green, the engine also features a pair of energy recovery systems that pull form exhaust pressure and braking.

This, of course, is the green component that has been the topic of much debate (and praise) as of late.


Another thing to take into consideration, is that fact that the new engine will have to power Formula 1 cars. Now, these cars can weigh up to 500kilograms +. This means that it will power round about 1250horsepower per ton. Quite impressive.

So, who is looking forward to the 2014 season?!
