Certainly makes you believe the engine was derived from the 040 F1 engine, or the 333 SP engine (even though Ferrari claimed the opposite), but at least a race engine.
The F50 was Ferrari's first 65 deg V12 street car, and they have certainly gotten mileage out of that configuration. Borrowed from a Dino V6 engine, naturally.
Crud, I did not realize Ferrari made a 75 degree V12 engine for F1. More room for induction, I guess. Learn something new every day.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
