Ilmor Engineering was founded in 1984 when engineers Mario Illien (IL) and Paul Morgan (MOR) reached out to Roger Penske with a plan to build a better engine for the IndyCar racing series. Since then, legendary drivers like Andretti, Unser, and Castroneves have all driven cars powered by Ilmor engines. Ilmor now has over 260 IndyCar race wins, 17 Indianapolis 500 victories, 44 Formula 1 wins, and two Formula 1 World Championships.
Since 2003, Ilmor has applied its expertise to the marine industry, creating completely unique engines for high performance powerboats. These engines include the lightweight MV10-725, based on the Dodge Viper V-10, or the MV8-570, the most powerful small-block gasoline production marine engine today. Ilmor has also expanded its competitive tradition into powerboat racing, winning seven World Championships in Powerboat racing since 2007.
The positive response to Ilmor's products and customer service has resulted in Ilmor becoming a major supplier of powerboat engines and drives to boat makers all over the world, paving the way for product expansion. In 2010, Ilmor launched a series of inboard GM-based V-8 engines, all manufactured in its state-of-the-art 50,000 square foot marine engine assembly and test facility in Mooresville, North Carolina, specifically committed to managing the long term growth of our marine products.
Ilmor still follows the same principles put in place by its founders: innovative solutions, precision engineering and manufacturing, high quality, reliable products, and unrivaled customer support.
