COSWORTH - Everything You Need to Know | Up to Speed

  • Published: 02 January 2020
  • Cosworth is solely responsible for arguably some of the coolest ever: the Ford Cosworth RS200, Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, the Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth, Chevrolet Vega, the freakin’ Audi RS4, and a long list of Cosworth powered racing cars from rally to Formula 1. So how in the world did a small British company establish itself as a performance powerhouse that is still working with companies such as Aston Martin, helping develop one of the most powerful naturally aspirated V12 engines ever?

    Up to Speed is a weekly automotive history show about the best cars, brands, designers, drivers and influencers ever. Host James Pumphrey covers everything from the Toyota Supra to the Chevy El Camino, The VW GTI to the Subaru WRX. The origins of every car will be uncovered to get you Up to Speed..
