Description
This is an inclusive list of every V-12 passenger car engine ever produced — with information, opinion, and the possibility that the V-12 isn't actually the best engine layout. === Click here to join the Hagerty Driver's Club: https://bit.ly/Join-HDC-Cammisa-Rev === Update: The data sharing programs from Honda, Hyundai (Verisk) and General Motors (Lexis Nexis) that we covered in Episode 143 have all been cancelled. Score one for Data Privacy and for Car Enthusiasts! This episode stems from the quote from former Car and Driver editor (and founder of Automobile Magazine) David E. Davis, who said: “I firmly believe that everyone who is worth anything at all should own a 12-cylinder car before they die,” We pose the question: why? And then answer it with technical information about the V-12 engine layout, and discuss all of them — including defining the chapters of the V-12: 1. Prehistoric Luxury V12s. 2. Carbureted Performance/Racing V12s 3. Fuel-injected V12s. 4. Modern V12s. Enjoy! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
