Arrows A10 Megatron
The Arrows A10 was used throughout 1987, powered by a BMW turbocharged engined named Megatron, according to a subsidiary of the team's main sponsor, USF&G. BMW had earlier announced to pull out of Formula One as an engine supplier, meaning that Arrows could only secure the use of the engines through its own financing. Maintenance on the engines was done by Heini Mader, the former mechanic of Jo Siffert and a long time partner of the Arrows team. Due to regulations, the engines' turbo boost was restricted to 4.0 bar by means of an FIA approved pop-off valve but were altogether good enough for more than 1000bhp during qualifying.
Eddie Cheever recorded the car's best finish by finishing 4th, both at the Belgian GP early in the season and in Mexico, two races from the end. Together with Dereck Warwick, Cheever scored 11 points throughout 1987, enough for 7th place in the constructors' championship.
