Hear the sound of 2015 Honda F1 V6 turbo engine (and set it as the ringtone of your cell phone)


Hoje (18), a Honda publicou na internet uma gravação do primeiro teste do seu motor 1.6 V6 turbo, que está sendo desenvolvido para a equipe McLaren de Fórmula 1, e que será usado em 2015.

Em 2013, a Honda confirmou seu retorno à categoria máxima do automobilismo, e irá substituir a Mercedes-Benz como fornecedora de motores para a McLaren.

Até hoje, a participação da Honda na Fórmula 1 resultou em 53 pole positions, 44 vitórias, 30 voltas mais rápidas, quatro títulos de pilotos e quatro títulos de construtores.
Honda Fires new F1 Engine for the First Time

Today Honda has released a recording of its new F1 engine which was recently fired for the first time. The engine is being developed for the 2015 season where Honda will participate under a joint project with McLaren.

Manabu Nishimae, President of Honda Motor Europe Ltd, commented, "It is exciting to hear the cry of our new born Formula One engine for the first time. Our engineers are working hard to develop the engine and we are all looking forward to the start of the 2015 season."

Honda will be in charge of the development, manufacture and supply of the power unit, including the engine and energy recovery system, while McLaren will be in charge of the development and manufacture of the chassis, as well as the management of the new team, McLaren Honda.

From 2014, new F1 regulations require the introduction of a 1.6 litre direct injection turbocharged V6 engine with energy recovery systems. The opportunity to further develop these powertrain technologies through the challenge of racing is central to Honda's decision to participate in F1. Throughout its history, Honda has passionately pursued improvements in the efficiency of the internal combustion engine and in more recent years, the development of pioneering energy management technologies such as hybrid systems. Participation in Formula 1 under these new regulations will encourage even further technological progress in both these areas. Furthermore, a new generation of Honda engineers can experience the challenges and the thrills of operating at the pinnacle of motorsport.

Honda will base its European racing operation in Milton Keynes from June 2014.
