Cosworth-developed Jaguar C-X75 engine could live in another model

The Formula 1-inspired 502 bhp (374 kW) 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged and supercharged engine from the Jaguar C-X75 concept could power another car sometime in the future.

Although Jaguar officially cancelled the C-X75, its Cosworth-developed conventional power unit might be transplanted to other cars, not necessarily wearing the Jaguar badge. Cosworth principal engineer Andy Ball told Piston Heads the engine is still alive with a road-car manufacturer, but refused to specify its name. He added the engine will be adapted for a production road-going car and could have a 300 bhp / liter ratio.

Cosworth will not be an engine supplier for the 2014 Formula 1 season as Marussia will be choosing another vendor. However, it's not all bad for the British company as they will be focusing on collaborating with various automakers who want small engines with a high output. Ball also said an important focus will be on improving the engine's reliability.
