In this week's YouTube Gold we'll focus on what might be the best ingredient for a soundtrack: a flat-12 mounted in the middle of a Porsche 917K.
The 917K was a race car used by Porsche. It featured in endurance races such as the Le Mans 24 Hours, but it was also active in a slightly different version in the North American Can Am series. The 917 was designed by Porsche legend Hans Mezger, who also designed the 4.5 litre flat-12 engine which you are about to enjoy in today's video. The noises are produced by an engine constructed in a 180 degrees flat-12 cylinder layout with twin overhead camshafts.
About YouTube Gold
In this returning series we highlight a YouTube video we love. It can be recent, it can be older than the internet itself, but it's definitely worth the watch. It can be a documentary, a short clip, a feature of a car or an onboard around a track. It can be a very expensive production but also a very simple production. Sometimes a dashcam video leaves a bigger impression than a Hollywood production. Either way, what we post in this series is worth your attention in our mind. It's in our favorites and we think it might just make it to your favorites too.
To make it easy, we collect all our YouTube Gold featured videos in a public playlist on our channel. Go check it out, and while you're there: give our channel a follow and, if you please, set the alerts for new videos. We'll be posting stuff there you will not want to miss.
