It is interesting to contrast this Lamborghini V-12 with a Ferrari V-12. This engine was used in many different models (400 GT, Islero, Espada, Jarama, etc.) in the same basic tune. It gives good power and torque through the rev range. Many Ferrari fans look down on Lambos, but this engine does a fine job.
