Motori Moderni

Motori Moderni was a Formula One engine manufacturer from 1985 through 1987. It was established by the experienced Italian engine designer Carlo Chiti.

Chiti, a former Alfa Romeo Formula One chief engineer, formed Motori Moderni to make turbocharged V6 engines for Minardi, known as the Tipo 615-90. The engines were used by Minardi in Formula One from 1985 to 1987.

The company later developed a normally-aspirated 12 cylinder boxer engine, known as the 1235, with support from Subaru for use by the unsuccessful Coloni team. After abandoning Formula One, the engines found use in the Alba Racing Team's entry in the World Sportscar Championship, but were once again unsuccessful.
