Lotus Europa Powered by Cosworth FVA (1)
This vehicle is a Lotus Europa Type 46 (S1) modified to the Type 47 specification and fitted with Cosworth FVA, the 4 valves-per-cylinder twin cam engine. This engine is equipped with the Lucas mechanical fuel injection, producing 225 bhp at 9500 rpm. This particular engine, when tested on a dynamometer 10 years ago when this particular car was fabricated, produced a maximum power 202 PS at 9090 rpm with maximum torque of 126.7 lbft at 7400 rpm. The FVA engine had been the dominant engine in the F2 race category between 1967 and 1971. Enjoy engine start and sound from the engine. This engine uses a cam gear train system instead of a timing chain due to needs for higher engine speeds. Can you hear the characteristic engine noise resulting from the use of the cam gear train? This engine had developed into the famous DFV (Double Four Valve) grand-prix engine.
