V12 engines are making a strong comeback, it appears. For a long time, V12 engines were overlooked in most automobiles due to their size and the fact that they have many moving parts, which makes them more susceptible to wear and tear and eventual maintenance. However, this has changed.
Even though V12s required a complicated exhaust system and were found to be much more expensive to create than other engines, automobile manufacturers were generally unenthusiastic about the technology. On the other hand, several manufacturers remain loyal to the legendary V12, going to unusual lengths to include it in their most recent models of automobiles.
For example, we may spend several hours arguing whether a V8 or a V12 engine is preferable (or even V10). The following collection of 17 new V12-powered autos, on the other hand, will allow us to make better use of our time.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith marks the beginning of Rolls-reign Royce’s amazement. The Wraith, which has a more streamlined design than the Phantom, retains the 6.6-liter V12 BMW engine, which generates 624 horsepower and is more powerful. 0 to 60 miles per hour is accomplished in 4.4 seconds by the coupe.
Aston Martin Vanquish S
In the Aston Martin Vanquish S, a 6-liter Aston Martin V12 engine powers the vehicle. This engine is certainly one of the best engines available in the car business.
Powered with a stronger V12 engine that generates 580 horsepower and drives the Vanquish S from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, the vehicle can reach speeds of up to 201 miles per hour.
Aston Martin DB11
The Aston Martin DB11 is yet another amazing V12-powered automobile. Even though the V12 engine in the DB11 has been shrunk to 5.2 liters to reduce emissions, the car remains a superb vehicle.
The dual turbocharged V12 engine, on the other hand, continues to deliver exceptional performance.
Aston Martin Rapide S
The Vanquish S and the Vanquish S share many technological components, including the same V12 6-liter engine, which is included in both vehicles.
The Rapide S distinguishes itself from the DB11 and Vanquish S because of its subtle, twisted, and streamlined external appearance, attracting drivers of different tastes and backgrounds.
Ferrari 812 Superfast
Another amazing contribution by Ferrari to the V12 world is the Ferrari 812 Superfast, which is exactly what it says on the tin: it is extremely fast.
With 789 horsepower, the car’s outstanding 6.5-liter V12 engine, in addition to its elegant design, makes it one of the quickest and most efficient V12 engines available.
Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
Despite being based on the previous Ferrari FF, the current Ferrari GTC4Lusso offers a completely revised look, as well as a bevy of innovative new features.
Despite the upgrades, the traditional 6.3-liter V12 engine from the Lusso was retained, which was an excellent decision on Ferrari’s part.
Having a powerful automobile is about much more than its top speed, 0 to 60 times, and horsepower. While the Aventador S checks off all of the criteria, we are most taken with it because of the incredible sound its engine generates. 730 horsepower is generated by the 6.5-liter V12 engine, which has been upgraded.
The newest Mercedes-AMG S65 is offered in three different and fashionable body styles: coupe, cabriolet, and sedan, all of which are accessible in the United States.
It looks amazing in all three versions and is sure to appeal to a wide variety of tastes, making it a good addition to Mercedes’ portfolio thanks to its V12 engine, which produces 621 horsepower and is an excellent addition to the Mercedes roster.
The Maybach, another superb V12 Mercedes-Benz, is offered in two separate configurations to suit any taste: a standard S-class or a long Pullman limousine, depending on the model. Both versions are powered by a Mercedes-Benz twin-turbo V12 engine, which delivers sufficient power in addition to their distinctive looks and styling.
As a result, the Mercedes AMG SL65 is a unique interpretation of the Mercedes AMG S65 cabriolet, as it is targeted at a specific market area. Because the SL65 only seats two people, it has a different sports car feel that other Mercedes vehicles may lack. It keeps the excellent V12 engine from the previous model.
Pagani, the world-renowned Italian manufacturer of exotic automobiles, continues to astonish and confuse with the release of the 2020 Huayra supercar. The Huayra is the heir to the iconic Zonda.
It has done nothing but enhance Pagani’s reputation, thanks to its improved twin-turbo V12 engine, 700 horsepower, and titanium body, making it one of the greatest supercars available today.
Bentley Continental GT W-12 Coupe
Bentley’s all-new Continental GT W-12 is a fantastic way to kick off the new year in style. While the Continental’s outward appearance is bold and elegant, it also has a dual turbocharged W12 engine that develops 626 horsepower and propels the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. The Continental is also available with a rear-wheel-drive option.
When translated into English, the term “Veneno” means “venom,” and the Lamborghini Veneno certainly lives up to its name.
It’s more accurately described as a street-legal race vehicle, with a 6.5-liter V12 engine capable of producing 740 horsepower and a top speed of 155 mph. The nine Lamborghini Venenos that was installed is among the most notable of these.
Even though BMW owns Rolls-Royce, the amazing Rolls-Royce Phantom has no relation to a BMW in terms of design or performance.
From an aesthetic standpoint, the Phantom is similar in elegance and appearance to a more upscale Rolls-Royce, and the Phantom’s 6.75-liter V12 engine distinguishes it significantly from its competition.
Mercedes-Benz Exelero Maybach
However, while its outward appearance may not appear to appeal to everyone at first look, the Maybach Exelero’s performance statistics need more investigation.
It is propelled by a V12 engine with dual turbochargers that can reach top speeds of 213 miles per hour. Additionally, rapper Birdman was drawn to it and felt obliged to have one.
Aston Martin One-77
The Aston Martin One-77 is a one-of-a-kind, limited-edition supercar with mind-blowing capabilities unlike anything else on the market. A 7.3-liter V12 engine with 750 horsepower was installed at the start of the decade, and the vehicle has been in production for a decade.
Aston Martin’s One-77 supercar is also one of the most aesthetically beautiful supercars available, which helps to elevate further the Aston Martin brand’s position in the supercar market.
The Rolls-Royce Dawn, powered by a V12 engine shared with BMW, is one of the company’s lesser production vehicles, but it is no less impressive.
The Dawn’s V12 engine generates 563 horsepower and propels it from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars on the road. Several innovative driver aid functions are also included in the Rolls-Royce Dawn, which is available as an option.
