Re: V-12

Ron,
According to http://www.car-nection.com/jagbase/ the first V-12 to be
introduced into a production car was the XKE in 1971. Prior to that, the
engine of choice was primarily the 4.2 litre. The V-12, however was first
manufactured in 1954. Here is an article about the V-12 as published by Jag
World http://www.jagweb.com/jagworld/v12-engine/
