This engine is the smallest of the V-12 Lampredi family displacing 3.0L. It was used in the early 250 GT Europas in 1953 and 1954. The Lampredi engine uses individual intake ports and “inside” plug heads. It is also physically large, some 5” longer then the 3.0L Colombo engine. This example made about 200 HP. The factory claimed 200-220 HP @ 6,300 rpm with 8:1 compression ratio so the numbers seem about right.
