Listen to the Mercedes flat 12 Engine
The 3.5 liter, 640 horsepower Mercedes ‘M291' 180-degree 12 cylinder engine died twice: first when it repeatedly failed on the race track, and second when the entire racing series it was designed for came to an end.
Take in the howl of twelve cylinders, in a flat vee, breathing through individual throttle bodies.
