I have owned Lambo for close to 20 years. Rumor has it that the Lambo V/12 unusual design is that Honda played a hugh role in its motor development not Bizzerini designed as was reported in the press hype to promote the car at that time. Listen carefully to a early Lambo V 12 & watch the old 60s movie Grand Prix with the Honda powered car they used and realize it was most likely Honda that Mr Lamborghini hired for engine design due to their developement of formula 1 machinery, not anyone affiliated with Ferrari as they had many unpleasant misunderstanding in the emergence and developement of their respective products.
