There is a good chance we may never see the naturally aspirated V12 in Formula One again. They have long been replaced by the lower-displacement turbocharged motors for reasons of efficiency and the power.
These new F1 cars are certainly faster, and vintage examples like this 1991 Ferrari 643 are the lot more fun to watch.
This vehicle, driven by Alain Prost during the 1991 F1 season, features the 3.5-liter V12 engine capable of 730 hp, connected to the seven-speed paddle-shift transmission.
Ferrari was nice enough to bring the car out for the few laps at Imola during the historic Minardi Day event last month, and luckily, it was all captured on video.
The 643 was never competitive in period, and that hardly matters now. The only thing fans care about when it comes to vehicles like this is the sound, and there is plenty to go around. Throw some headphones on and take a listen.
