First founded in 1926, Mercedes-Benz has a long history of creating the most refined, powerful, and luxurious German-made vehicles. The Mercedes V12 engine is a big part of what makes its cars so powerful and efficient. The Mercedes V12 engine has been around since before 1900, and has been used in many different kinds of vehicles. Perhaps, its best use is in racing cars for the extreme efficiency that the engine provides. It is so popular because of its excellent design. The V12 is a V-engine with 12 cylinders mounted in two banks of six cylinders each. The cylinders may be angled at 60 degrees, 120 degrees, or 180 degrees, which provide perfect primary and secondary balance to one another. The stylish shape of the V12 means it can fire twice as often as a V6 engine and it is lighter than other engine designs as it does not require balancing weights to counter the movement of the cylinders. Used in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class that is still in production, you cannot find an engine that is more worthy of the road.
