Straight-6[edit]

Lampredi also modified his four into a straight-6 for racing use.

V6[edit]

Ferrari's Dino project of the 1956 gave birth to the company's well-known 65° V6 engines. This Vittorio Jano design formed the basis of the company's modern engines right up through the mid-2000s (decade). Another series of V6 engines was started in 1958 with a 60° V-angle and single overhead camshafts design.

V8[edit]
