Ferrari vows to keep the non-turbo V12 engine alive

Ferrari sticks to the V12 engine, and without turbo pressure. Even if it costs the brand from Maranello a fortune.

Ferrari's first street car ever had a V12 engine – and the brand from Maranello intends to keep it that way.

Even if it must necessarily cost the company a fortune to get the large suction engine to meet current emission requirements.

Requirements that until very recently Ferrari did not actually need to live up to. Car brands that build up to 10,000 cars a year sneak around any emission requirements.

Last year, however, Ferrari built just under 14,000 cars, and so it will cost a fortune to keep the V12 engine alive. But that's something Ferrari wants.

This is what the brand's head of development, Gianmaria Fulgenzi, says in an interview with Autocar .

– Turbo pressure is not something I consider, says Gianmaria Fulgenzi, referring to Ferrari's 6.5-liter V12 engine.

There is more than one reason for the fact that Ferrari has spent probably hideous sums to ensure that the V12 engine meets the current emission requirements when you ask Fulgenzi.

– The V12 engine is natural. It creates feeling, sound and acceleration right from the lowest to the highest revolutions. This is what we want to deliver, emphasizes the development manager.

Ferrari are not the only ones keeping the 12 cylinders alive. Aston Martin, who after a funeral speech for the 12 cylinders in 2022 resigned.

However, unlike the people in Maranello, the English go with turbo pressure. In fact, the factory in Gaydon, England, is equipping a new 12-cylinder with twin turbos. Read more about it here .
