 Great Stuff  
I've seen it run onetime at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was driven by Rowan Atkinson. Great machine.There was also a Fiat called Mefistofoles, which was powered by an airplane 26 litres 6 cilinder engine. Great Monsters.
 small 12 cylinder  
If you are really looking for a big 12 cylinder engine why not try a marine diesel. Just an example, a modern 12 cylinder, with a displacement of 960x2500, (i leave the litre calculation up to you), producing 89500 HP at the exciting rate of 100 revs per minute. Now that's a real engine but built for a different purpose. Richkidz comment is of course meant to pull a leg, nice try, or are you really stupid?
 BIg Displacement  
24 litres!!!!!!!!!! Out of 12 cylinders!!!!! That is beastly. The Enzo has 12 cylinders, and the engine is much more modern, and that only gets 6 litres, or 1/2 litre per cylinder, compared to the Railton's 2 litres per cylinder. Get my point. I'd buy this car anyday.
