Listen to Honda's still secret 2015 F1 engine

  • 18-Oct-2013 11:55 EDT

Honda is leaving a lot to the imagination regarding the all-new V6 it is developing for the 2015 Formula One season. As a teaser, the company has released a sound bite of the screaming powerplant—crank up the volume and listen to it wail here:  ttp:// . The automaker bowed out from the penultimate race series after the 2008 season due to the global recession; it plans to re-enter in 2015 under a partnership with McLaren. The McLaren Honda team is to be run by McLaren, which will provide the chassis, while Honda is responsible for design and manufacture of the engine. Starting in 2014, F1 will require use of a 1.6-L V6 with direct injection, turbocharging, and energy recovery. This replaces the 2.4-L V8 currently in use. "The new F1 regulations with their significant environmental focus will inspire even greater development of our own advanced technologies, and this is central to our participation in F1," Honda Motor Co. Ltd. President and CEO Takanobu Ito said earlier this year.
