The men that made the V12 dynasty
Tractors, air con, golf buggies, helicopters, wine, supercars: Ferruccio dabbled with them all. Supposedly started building cars to show Ferrari how it was done, but sold up in the mid-1970s.
GIAN PAOLO DALLARA
Young Dallara created the bare Miura chassis shown at the ’65 Turin show and devised the transverse engine above gearbox layout. Founded Dallara Automobili, which supplies chassis to the single-seater world.
The talented Stanzini was in his 20s when work started on the Miura. Took over as chief engineer when Dallara left, and later developed the all-wheel drive quad-turbo EB110 for Artioli’s short-lived Bugatti revival.
One-time Ferrari man created the 250 GTO for Enzo but left in protest at Enzo’s engineering department re-organisation.
His legendary Lamborghini V12 packed twin-cam heads compared with Ferrari’s singles.
