I'd drive it down the road :) But I do have one question, if its only a 12 then why does exhaust come out of both sides? Is it a split exhaust or a 24 cylinder with 12 on each side?

Good spotting!

The explanation I saw elsewhere on the web was that it has one exhaust pipe per valve.

Well, if its one exhaust pipe per valve, then its a 24 cylinder.

I checked the Merlin V-12 and the exhaust pipes are oval.....looks like this one has 2 pipes per exhaust valve with an oval port using 2 pipes. Pipes are way too close to suggest 24-cyl......pistons would be the size of an oldtime "push-up" treat....(think sherbet bar....)
