RML reveals updated Ferrari V12 engineAugust 20, 2021
The updated Ferrari V12 is a real work of art that will be installed under the hood of a special car.
The Ferrari 250 GT with a short wheelbase is one of the most beautiful and expensive cars in the world, so the British company RML Group has taken to creating a modern interpretation of it. RML has already shared images of the car’s stunning interior and has now announced more information on the artwork that will be under the hood. As expected, the model will use a 5,474 cc naturally aspirated V12 engine. cm (5.5 liters), producing 478 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 568 Nm of torque at 5000 rpm.
The V12 is derived from the 550 Maranello, the successor to the 250 GT and predecessor to the 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast. RML says the short wheelbase model will hit 100 km / h in just 4.1 seconds with a low curb weight and accelerate to 300 km / h. Most interestingly, the engine will use a six-speed closed-type manual transmission. Although it produces the same power as the 550, the V12 has been redesigned.
“It was important for us to look at the application of the V12 in the 550 so that we can accurately measure its intake and cooling performance. We then worked closely with head of car design, Jonathan Bowen, to make sure air was directed to the engine. The engine not only met our requirements, but also did not make any aesthetic compromises, ”said powertrain engineer Adnan Rahman.
RML had to redesign the intake, cooling and exhaust systems from scratch because the short wheelbase is different than the standard 550, even though the two vehicles share a common base. Rahman says the bespoke design will allow customers to take full advantage of the V12’s power and drive Dubai’s roads without overheating.
Other changes to the V12 engine include redesigned radiators (five in total) and a relocated oil tank for the dry sump system. RML says it has developed a completely new exhaust system from the manifold to four tailpipes, helping the short wheelbase to produce a sonorous note that meets all current noise regulations. It would be interesting to hear the engine in action when the short wheelbase model first appears later this year.
