Ferrari Built A 2.0 Liter Flat 12 Engine And It Sounds Unreal

This is the one-of-one Ferrari 212E, a hillclimb special that cleaned up its 1969 championship. Under the rear lid is a flat 12 engine displacing just two liters. Just listen to it.

Here’s the car at the Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb back in 2003. You can see its minute engine right here.

Think of how tiny those cylinders must be!

Sounds like Honda’s 250cc (!!!) inline-six. 42cc/cylinder!

So rad. Petrolicious wrote a thing about it. The valves were like golf tees!
