Mugen-Honda V10 F1 Engine Needs To Live On In A Crazy Engine Swap

Formula One has changed drastically throughout the decades but one of the most-loved eras of the sport was when high-revving V10 engines were in use.

The V10s produced a cacophony unrivaled by any other engine and have already gone down in folklore. Now, a Mugen-Honda V10 engine from the 1990s has appeared for sale from Race Cars Direct and it has us yearning for times gone by.

It isn’t known if this exact engine was used in any F1 races but it was built for the 1992 and 1993 F1 cars run by Footwork, as well as the 1994 car of Team Lotus. Delivering approximately 700 hp and revving to dizzying heights, it could serve as the ultimate powertrain for someone looking to do an out-of-the-world engine swap.

Can anyone say F1-powered Honda NSX?

  • Obsequious Lickspittle

    I wonder what sort of life it would have in a road-based car?
    Weren’t F1 engines only really designed to last a race or is that an urban legend?

    • SetNick

      I thought the same thing about the engines reliability.


    Mugen Honda NSX please.

  • Blade t

    Nice..definitely wouldn’t be street legal….

  • No it’s not the Honda F1 that you know today. This one’s worth a million bucks.

  • SteersUright

    How would one go about “detuning” an engine like this to make, say 550hp, to improve long term reliability? In other words, how do you dial the power down but keep most of the good stuff like still decently high revving, some power, etc?
