The paper presents the assessment of operating parameters for piston combustion engines used in sports vehicles. The assessment was made for parameters of selected performance vehicles: Formula 1, Le Mans and WRC in relation to conventional vehicles. The conventional vehicles were classified within two categories: sports vehicles and general use road vehicles. Basic engine characteristics were analyzed and the parameter values obtained allowed a comparison of the engines.
