F1 turbo engines for 2014 will be very expensive
27 June, 2012
Auto Motor und Sport reports that, Sauber for example, currently spends around $10 million on its Ferrari engine, and another million for KERS.
But for 2014, with F1 switching to ‘green’ turbo V6 power, the price is reportedly going up, to between $20-30 million.
Offering the best price is Craig Pollock’s new venture Pure, who are asking $18 million for the Gilles Simon-designed engine-plus-KERS package.
“Even that is too expensive,” Sauber managing director Monisha Kaltenborn noted.
