Ever since the first Ferrari V-12 engine in 1946, the Ferrari/V-12 combination has defined "high-performance." In this in-depth analysis of Ferrari engine development, W. E. Gasich takes readers on a 40-year ride through Ferrari engine success and innovation.
Focusing on the 12-cylinder because it exemplified Enzo Ferrari's dream for high performance, Forty Years of Ferrari V-12 Engines looks at V-12s in road cars, sports cars and race cars. More than 50 percent of the company's engine designs have been 12-cylinder engines, and V-12s have accounted for three of Ferrari's nine Formula 1 Grand Prix World Championships. In this book, Gasich develops a new equation to denote volume-specific horsepower, a method of determining and comparing engine performance. His analysis of the engines includes detailed research on compression ratio, piston speed, bore/stroke ratio, BMEP, and specific power. Numerous equations, charts and tables complement the author's exhaustive research.
