A simple number sequence: 1-12-4-9-2-11-6-7-3-10-5-8. What sounds like a challenging riddle that you might expect to find on an IQ test is actually the timing scheme of a symphony: the "Ordine Di Accensione", i.e. the firing order of the naturally aspirated V12 engine in the Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae.
