What engine is the 16 cylinder V-engine: a 16 cylinder V-engine is a sixteen-cylinder piston engine where two banks of eight cylinders are arranged in a V configuration around a common crankshaft. V16 engines are rarely used, much less common than engines with fewer cylinders, such as V8, V12 and V10 engines.
What is the 16 cylinder V-engine displacement: it is 13600 cc in recent model line up powertrain. How much is the power of the 16 cylinder V-engine: the power of the 16 cylinder v-engine it is 1000 bhp.
Which cars use 16 cylinder V-engine: V16 engines are almost not used for cars. In the last 50 years these are the automotive manufacturer that engineered and built V16 engines:
-In the late 1980s, the BMW Goldfish V16 6.7 L (409 cu in) engine was developed, based on BMW's then-new V12 engine. Prototypes were fitted to a long-wheelbase 7 Series and then in the early 1990s to a Bentley Mulsanne.
-Mercedes-Benz developed a 8.0 L (488 cu in) V16 engine for the S-class limousine. Between 1988 and 1990, approximately 35 prototypes were built.
-The 2003 Cadillac Sixteen concept car was unveiled with a 13.6 L (830 cu in) V16 engine, which was based on the General Motors LS V8 engines.
Racing usage: the first known use of a V16 in motor racing was the Maserati Tipo V4 car used in Grand Prix racing. The Tipo V4 debuted at Monza in 1929 and achieved a world speed record of 245.9 km/h (152.8 mph) at an event in Cremona, Italy. At the 1931 Indianapolis 500, a custom-built V16 engine was fitted to a Cord supercar driven by Shorty Cantlon. The car was competitive, charging from 26th on the grid to 3rd, but was slowed by unreliability, further exacerbated by having to change all sixteen spark plugs. The following year, Bryan Saulpaugh qualified the car in third position. The car suffered a broken oil line on lap 55 and their race was over. Shortly after the race the V16 was removed and replaced with a conventional Miller four-cylinder engine. The mid-engined Auto Union Type A, Type B and Type C Grand Prix cars of 1933 to 1938 were powered by supercharged 4.4 L (269 cu in) engines. Due to a rule change in 1938, these were replaced by a V12 engine for the Type D racing car. Prior to this rule change, the Alfa Romeo Tipo 316 competed at the 1938 Tripoli Grand Prix powered by a 60-degree V16 engine. The only known use of a V16 engine in the post-World War II era is the British Racing Motors (BRM) V16 engine used in Formula One racing from 1950 to 1955. The engine was a 1.5 L (91 cu in) supercharged design, which was unsuccessful despite its high power output. Officially, it produced 410 kW (550 hp) but probably delivered around 450 kW (600 hp). The car was difficult to drive, due to the power band being in a narrow range and at high RPM.
