Now, granted, Ferrari’s V12s from the late-1980s to the mid-1990s did not bring Ferrari Formula 1 success. But if you need to ask ‘what’s so special about a Ferrari V12?’, then you clearly haven’t lived.
The legends over at Belgian Motorsport have lived enough for all of us, ten times over, and in celebration of 6 million views on their YouTube channel they decided to put together a compilation of Ferrari F1 V12 sounds. Praise be!
This epic, 12-and-a-half-minute long video covers seven of Ferrari’s 1990s racers, all with catastrophically loud V12s.
From the 1989 Ferrari F1-89 640, to the 1993 F93a and finally the ’95 412 T2, this video shows exactly why the screaming V12 deserves a place in every petrolhead’s heart.
Take a break with the video above and watch the cars in all their glory, filmed between 2008 and 2018 at Spa Francorchamps, the Nürburgring, Zolder and the Hockenheimring.
Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: Watch a gloves‑off fight between an M1 Procar and a Porsche 935.
