The emergence of luxury cars that have great power has been around since time immemorial. Just look at Cadillac Series 452 a car that released in 1930 already has a 12-cylinder engine or commonly called V-12.

The 1930 Cadillac Sixteen was the first year for the overhead-valve, 452-cubic-inch engine producing 165 horsepower and 320 foot-pounds of torque. The Sixteen was theoretically available in 33 different models, sub-models, or trim variations ranging from a $5,350 two-passenger roadster to an $8,750 town cabriolet. 

The typical example could return about 8 miles to a 15-cent gallon of gas and 150 miles to a quart of oil, plus cruise at 70 to a top-speed of 90 mph.
