The Spaniard Behind the Smallest V-12 Engine in the World Reply

Jose Hermo Barreiro

La Informació–José Manuel Hermo Barreiro, “Patelo”, is a pensioner from Galicia (Spain). This retired naval mechanic has built a collection of the smallest engines in the world. Having created by hand eleven minute and highly-complex, multi-cylinder miniature internal combustion engines he still considers himself a very impatient person and refers to his hobby as “passion for mechanics.” This is his story in a compelling seven-minute video with English subtitles. (Note to women readers: You may be surprised to find this interesting.)

Music: “Tafelmusik Teil II – IV. Trio: II. Allegro (Telemann)” by Ensemble Pian & Forte, Gabriele Cassone
