These days, we can’t easily find a V12 engine in fact and if we want to find it, we just can simply go to Ferrari.
Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa stated that the V12 will be kept for years to come in its engine line- up by the F1- developed kinetic energy recovery system or KERS. Felisa said to a British publication that they would bring new technology that introduced a green factor to their vehicles.
Well, Ferrari had decided to choose the hybrid one and at the last year Geneva Motor Show we had glanced at the V12s with the 599- based HY-KERS concept.
The hybrid system covers a compact and light electric motor that mated to the dual- clutch gearbox and a battery pack. The system is claimed to reduce the CO2 emissions by as much 35 percent and improve the power by a hundred ponies to the overall output. That will be true recalling Felisa’s statement that it would not just about the power but saving energy as well.
Looking back in the past 1947, the first model had been powered by a 1.5 liter V12 that spawned as much 125 S. the unit was created by Gioacchino Colombo and it had been arranged for Ferrari’s vehicle until the end of the eighties.
However, in 1996 when Michael Schumacher driven the F310,the company made use of a V10. Well, no matter how loyal Ferrari to the V12, in fact the V10 was assumed to be better than the V12.
It was said in the launch of the F12berlinetta that the first in a new generation of V12s is the 730 ponies engine mounted behind the coupe’s nose.
