Engine
 
A Formula One engine is a miracle of modern engineering.

The best of these three-litre, normally aspirated V10s rev to well over 18,000rpm and produce in excess of 860bhp. And they weigh less than 100kg.

That is twice the engine capacity of a typical family saloon, but more than three times as many revs and eight times more power.

And it is less than half the weight.
