    I wonder:
    always thaught the 512S has a V180 ° engine, like the 512 BB
    but when I see at 1:06 it looks like a V 60° or V 90 ° engine

    I very much appreciate the erudition shown in this reply. Seriously. Very few books contain this sort of detailed information.
    I bet that there are many books about the 512S with many beautiful photos of whatever that do not contain this engine description.

    I have often thought that a book about, say, every Ferrari V12 engine up to about 1970 or so, with such a detailed engine
    description --- or maybe even more details and photos --- with the cars that had that engine would indeed be
    a thing of beauty and a joy for ever.

    Well you might (or might not be - don't know because I haven't seen a copy) be in luck: https://haynes.com/en-gb/ferrari-engines-enthusiasts-manual (better prices elsewhere).

    Video and the article (especially David Hobbs comments) made me appreciate the T70 a bit more. Apparently it was quite the breakthrough when it came out...

    I have already ordered it from Amazon, but it will not be released for another week.

    I will report back if it does have good information.

    The 512S engine is definitely pictured in it! And a nice looking one!

    Nice collection to have, to race all 3 of them. However most of the Lola raced today are brand new cars or massively rebuilt cars, unlike real 917 and 512. Although as said before there are less and less real 917 and 512 being really raced, those days, and more and more replicas being used for that purpose, so I guess they are all competing in same class!
