Volkswagen Brabham Formula 3

We provide quality components, rebuild services & supply complete engines to continue the success of this historic racing engine.

 

Due to its lighter weight (approx 30kg less than Toyota), low centre of gravity and longer stroke, this is the engine to have in a 2 Litre Classic F3 car. In the 1983 British F3 Championship, 18 of 21 podiums included VW Brabham powered cars. In 1984 it was a clean sweep, winning every round.

 

Certain components are interchangeable between Brabham F3 and Supervee engines.

 

Built to our developed & proven spec, our engines offer supreme performance & reliability.
