Even if it plans to launch a 100% electric model for 2025, the Italian brand Ferrari affirms loud and clear that its atmospheric V12 engine still has a bright future ahead!
Ferrari is still one of the few brands to continue its Atmospheric V12, and we hope for a long time to come!
These engines 12 cylinders in V, intended for the most prestigious vehicles, are less and less present among manufacturers, in particular because of the high costs to adapt these blocks to antipollution standards.
If we still find it in certain prestigious brands such as Lamborghini, Aston Martin or Rolls-Royce, some firms such as Jaguar in particular no longer produce cars with such engines.
But at Ferrari, this mechanism is a real institution, and is not going to disappear anytime soon! And this is not the announcement of a first 100% electric sports car model which will divert the firm on the prancing horse from this so noble motorization …
Purist friends, rest assured. He is Ferrari’s in-person sales and marketing director, Enrico Galliera, who himself announced that the V12 will indeed be part of the game for years to come.
In parallel, Michael Leyters, the technical director of the brand, confirmed the facts and even added that the 6.5L V12 still had a great potential for optimization in front of it …
The days of atmospheric V12 are therefore not numbered, phew!
Recently announced, the next Ferrari 812 Competizione will benefit from an even improved version of the famous V12 F140. For this more radical version, Maranello pushed its atmospheric block to 830 hp for 690 Nm of torque. The red zone is even reached at 9,500 rpm!
Ferrari also promises to do not give in to hybridization or even overfeeding here. It remains to be seen the future models that the brand will present with this legendary block!
