I dunno' about that. The V12 is no less 'race bred' than the V8.

There's nothing race-bred about Ford's V6.

The V8 and V12 Vantages are both great cars - which you get depends on your budget and how much you like one vs the other. If you're only looking for straight-line speed, the V12 can be a monster. But the V8 can be more nimble if you're looking at throwing it around. You can get a decent amount of power out of the V8 with modifications and, with the lower weight and better weight distribution, it can compete with the V12 on the track.

Both the V8 and V12 engines have been raced for over a decade.
V8: N24, GT2, GTE, GT4
V12: DBR9, DBRS9, GT3
