The V12 Engine by Book

Weight 1.8kg by Karl Ludvigsen
The first V12 engine was produced for a powerboat in 1904 and the format became popular in early aircraft engines too but it in 1913 that the first V12 car appeared, a Sunbeam built to race at Brooklands. There have been many famous aero engines following the design but they are included for their part in motor car history here and their role in speed record breaking. Post War it was Ferrari who led the support for the layout but there have been many other manufacturers of both road and race cars who have favoured the designs and this covers a full century of development from that first marine engine through to the Ferrari Enzo. There are plenty of drawings and photos throughout and our only regret is that it’s not an audio book!
