Ferrari has reaffirmed its commitment to the iconic V-12 engine, with plans to continue production until legal requirements dictate otherwise. The recently revealed 12Cilindri, named in honor of its 12 cylinders, is a testament to the company’s dedication to this legendary powertrain.

Emanuele Carando, Ferrari’s Product Marketing head, confirmed that the 6.5-liter V-12 will remain in production until forced to cease due to regulatory changes. The focus on sustainability may lead to the development of new, more environmentally friendly fuels, allowing the V-12 to continue its reign.

While performance is a top priority, the engine’s emotional appeal is equally important, making it a vital part of Ferrari’s identity. The V-12’s unique sound and feel are unparalleled, creating a driving experience that is quintessentially Ferrari.

Although the company’s first EV is set to debut in 2025, and sales of combustion-engine cars are expected to decline, Ferrari remains committed to keeping the V-12 alive for as long as possible.

The adoption of sustainable fuels may be the key to the V-12’s long-term survival, ensuring that this iconic engine remains a part of Ferrari’s legacy for years to come.

With its rich history and unwavering dedication to performance and emotion, Ferrari’s V-12 engine will continue to thrill drivers and enthusiasts alike, even as the automotive landscape evolves.
