Not that I am in the market to buy one but I wonder what Cosworth are charging for the new F.1 engine. Anyone know?

Now, if it were a DFV I would be interested, even if it don't go.

Wasn't it that FIA limited the cost of the engines for entire season to 5-6mln pounds?

its a engine lease deal btw, im fairly sure of that... few engine builders sell engines these days without a package to go with it, everything stays inhouse. the small nascar teams will buy a engine and run it into the ground tho. for a start n park that might take along time xD

This was the result FIA got from the tender they had late 2008 for engine and transmission, although the deal has changed it might give an indication to the costs of running Cosworths for a year:

The cost to each team taking up this option will be an up-front payment of £1.68M (€1.97M) and then £5.49M (€6.42M) per season for each of the three years of the supply contract (2010, 2011, 2012).
This price is based on four teams signing up and includes full technical support at all races and official tests, plus 30,000 km of testing. The annual cost will reduce if more teams take up the option, for example to £4.99M (€5.84M) per team with eight teams.
It will further reduce if less than 30,000 km of testing is required. Neither engine nor transmission will be badged.

So with five teams using the engine it will net Cosworth between 25-30 million £'s. I am just guessing, but there should be room for a profit in that amount.

It would be fun if anyone knew, ballpark figures, the development costs for a modern F1 engine.

They probably get some extra cash from FiA as well.

Get a V10, I'm sure there are dozens sitting around somewhere after 2005.
