Cosworth is a high-performance engineering company founded in 1958 in London. They specialise in engines and electronics for motorsports, and possibly most notably in Formula One. They are based Northampton, England; have North America facilities in Torrance (California), Indianapolis (Indiana) and Mooresville (North Carolina), and an Indian facility in Pune.
In 1969, they attempted to make their own four-wheel-drive car, but this project failed.
After falling behind in the 80's (the turbo era), they made their way back to success, and powered the Jaguar cars in the early 2000s when Ford took over Stewart Grand Prix. They left the sport in 2006.
They supplied the Marussia in 2013, before they would not supply any team in 2014.
