Mark Dwyer of Speedreaders.info recently reviewed; The V12 Engine: The Technology, Evolution and Impact of V12-Engined Cars by Karl Ludvigsen.  

  • "To many motorheads the word “twelve” has a near-magical ring to it that any other number of cylinders in an internal combustion engine just doesn’t come close to matching for impression or status. Anything less is too few, while the only other practical design with more cylinders, sixteen, certainly does seem to be too many. "
  • "Taking on the challenge of chronicling every V12 car engine ever made, as the author tells us is his intent, is not only enormous in scope, it could easily prove to be an overwhelming task for any but the most experienced and determined researcher and writer."
