Newcomers ‘Propulsion Universelle et Recuperation d’Energie’ (PURE) recently reveal the 2014 Formula 1 V6 turbo engine first image. Formula 1 team already set to switch the existing 2.4-litre V8s to 1.6-litre V6s in 2014 with a better importance on energy recovery systems such as KERS
2014 F1 1.6-litre V6 is direct fuel injection that will make use of the KERS technology. PURE engine supplier has supplied to auto123 with a computer-generated image of their new V-6 turbo motor.
June 1st PURE technical department, led by Gilles Simon is based out of the former Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG) F1 facility in Cologne, Germany.
TMG was chosen in part because of their capability to test hybrid or e-motor systems, with single-component and full power-train test benches dedicated to hybrid development.
PURE’s very precise single-cylinder dynamometer is designed for minute analysis of single cylinders from high-performance engines or complete small capacity engines of around 100PS. With no neighboring cylinders, there is less outside influence on results while a greater variety of tests can be carried out.
