Ferrari will keep the V12 engine no matter what
The powertrain will survive in the future
For a long time considered the most noble engine for prestige vehicles, the V12 has been abandoned by many luxury carmakers because of the enormous cost required to bring it up to anti-pollution standards. For some brands, such as Ferrari, this engine is a real institution that has no reason to disappear.
Enrico Galliera, Ferrari's director of sales and marketing, says the Italian brand will keep the V12 going no matter what. According to him, the days of the naturally aspirated V12 are not numbered. Michael Leyters, the technical director of the prancing horse, adds that the 6.5-litre V12 still has a lot of potential for optimisation.
The Ferrari V12 will not disappear and will be alongside the first electric model in the range, planned for 2025. The brand from Maranello also promises not to give in to hybridization or even supercharging. Under the bonnet of the 812 Competizione, the latest evolution of the 6.5-litre V12 develops 830 PS and 690 Nm of torque.
