From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kauhsen was a Formula One constructor from Germany. They participated in 2 grands prix, entering a total of 2 cars.

Willi Kauhsen had run Porsches and quasi-works Alfa Romeo sports cars with some success and bought the championship-winning Elf Formula Two cars at the end of the 1976 season with a view to establishing a successful single seater team.

The Elfs enjoyed no success and it was somewhat surprising to see Kauhsen stepping up to Formula One in 1979. He was rumoured to be behind a project to run a pair of Kojima cars, but this did not work out; Kauhsen appeared with a series of improbable ground-effect cars that were crude copies of the Lotus 78 and 79 and whose performance was dismal. It was yet more surprising to see the cars sold to Arturo Merzario where they replaced his earlier crude March-based cars as the basis of his later eponymous team Merzario efforts.
