Video: Is this the best sounding Formula 1 engine ever?

Formula 1's hybrid era may be hugely impressive from a technological perspective, but it does lack a little bit of drama in the noise department. The same certainly can't be said for this engine...

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, Formula 1 was a wailing wall of hugely powerful engines screaming their way around the circuits of the world. While V10s became the engine of choice in the '90s, the last V12 in Formula 1 was used by Ferrari in 1995.

Powering the truculent 412 T2, the engine note of the Ferrari that year has gone down in legend due to its sheer violence and excitement.

This video of a 412 T2 taking part in a track day at Monza is a great example of what F1 fans in 1995 would have experienced.

Turn on your speakers and enjoy the thrill!
