I agree, not a fan of how it sounds. Also, there is no reference point so how fast does it go? I have nothing to gauge the power the v12 gives it :headscratch:

Check out this video below. Now, something tells me that v12 isn't going to beat this Mustang and I LOVE how this car sounds :gringreen

Well, probably not until the first turn/corner...

I can't say I'm crazy about the v12 sound, but props to the guys that did it. Definitely a nice, clean install.

I've seen that car before. A very clean installation. While I love the sound of a high-revving V-12, it sounds a bit odd coming out of a Mustang.

Did a nice job on it. But was not all that impressed with it. Sounds ok I guess. Just not what we are used to.

I wish they'd turn down or turn OFF the music so you could properly hear it. I'm sure it cost a boatload of money for something of dubious value. I'm surprised the engine fits.

It appears to be normally aspirated, the twin turbo version will make something over 1000 HP, I think.

Nice Stang. I really like that engine bay. Real clean. Bet it's a pain to work on, but real clean looking. That sound just ain't doing anything for me though. Maybe slap some Violators or something on there to improve it. All in all, gotta give props on creativity. This is definitely thinking outside the box.

Most V12's are high horsepower, high revving engines that do not produce as much torque. Very very smooth though. Less vibration from having 12 smaller explosions happening, in two rotations of the engine, compared to 8 bigger ones. It's also why Harleys will never be "smooth" engines.

If you want to see why no one else is doing it, check the price of a 12 cylinder Vanquish engine....

Thanks, no.
