Think about how much cool stuff they've got kicking around at Cosworth's headquarters in England. The company, founded 60 years ago by Mike Costin and Keith Duckworth—hence "Cosworth," a mashup of their last names—has had a hand in nearly every major form of motorsports over the years, in addition to consulting on some of the most important roadgoing performance vehicles of the past half-century.
Sixty years on, Cosworth is still undertaking huge projects, including engine work for the Aston Martin Valkyrie. The engineering firm is so busy, in fact, that they have to auction off some odds and ends to make room at HQ. That's great news if you were interested in picking up some Cosworth memorabilia.
British auction site that Cosworth is putting up for auction. Items range from small knick-knacks to an entire car. A small selection of what's on offer:
- A with fully-built supercharged engine and heavily modified suspension.
- A built for Barry Sheene to run in the 2000 Goodwood soapbox challenge.
- A , formerly a display item at the Cosworth museum.
- A , the 2.4-liter V8 that was the first F1 engine to rev to 20,000 RPM.
- , made to celebrate each year that a Cosworth DFV-powered car earned the Formula 1 Driver's Championship.
That's just a tiny sampling of the . If you're a Cosworth fan, and if you're in the UK (or can arrange shipping outside of England), get to bidding. The auction ends November 9th.
