We'll keep this simple: three of the world's finest supercars in one of the world's best supercar playgrounds. The hardcore action doesn't go much beyond each car getting a solo peelout. However, each machine does get plenty of individual, loving, lifestyle-themed attention. And the sights and sounds -- ah, sehr gut and che bella. Enjoy the video after the jump.

      Ferrari utilized 180 degree V12s for quite a while.
      A boxing engine is a 180 degree Vee engine, with a 180 degree split of the crankshaft journals. (with our without extra bearings to support the crankshaft-Honda Goldwing, only 4 main bearings)

      How much longer would a boxing 10 be over a V10, 2 inches if they were to use 11 main bearings.

      Its a V10. And Youtube is probably a good bet for more videos.

      HP be damned, I'll take the Carerra GT (Super Boxster!) any day. That banshee howl is nothing short of sexy!!!

      I couldn't help but notice that the first two "up-beat" snippets of background music are from the newest Prodigy album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. One of my personal favorites. I only wish this side of the pond would catch up with the rest of the world in music...and cars. btw, I'll take the SLR, love that rumble.

      #5 james, I think you are thinking of a "Strait" Engine. You might want to take a look at this link

      Flat 10? Can you imagine how much room that would take up! "If you didn't mid throwing away your passenger seat you could have a marvelous flat 10 powering your new Carrera GT". Well I suppose the car is for the driver not the passenger, therefore I propose someone build this flat 10 into a modern supercar!

      Don't anyone dare try and name a car with a flat 10 because there is nothing similar size wise, performance wise, or comparable in any way to the Carrera GT that has a flat 10.

      Three kings of sports cars? Considering this video is made in Italy I am very surprised to find one major sports car manufacturer not included in the trio...

      Sure the MC12 is Ferrari sourced, but c'mon Maserati is a prince by blood only at best...Ferrari is king, hell the MC12 is Enzo based.

      A boxing 10 would be even firing, that V10 is odd firing. 68 degree V angle, so firing isn't every 72 degrees, it is close though. 68,76 repeat

      The enzo (maserati) is odd firing also 65,55
