. As with the V engines. these banks of cylinders are aligned at a V-angle of 72° in relation to one another.the W engines. In the W engines. Introduction The constantly rising demands regarding performance. running comfort and fuel economy have led to the advancement of existing drive units and the development of new drive units. the cylinders are distributed to two banks.

Why called W ? 72° 15 ° .

The W principle To illustrate the principle of the W engine cylinder arrangement.120° . let first look at conventional engine types. The Inline Engine The V Engine 60 .

The VR Engine The W Engine 15° 72° 1 5° .

Combining two VR engines with a . The result is a series of compact petrol engines ranging from the W8 to the W16.The modular design principle of the W engines Two compact VR engines from the VR series are combined to produce a W engine.

the latter particularly stands out due to its compact design and very small external dimensions.A Comparison When a conventional 8-cylinder V engine is compared to an 8. . W engine is highlighted by the fact that it has even smaller external dimensions than a conventional V8 engine.cylinder W engine.

The Crankcase The crankcase comprises two components: the crankcase upper section and the crankcase lower section. the cylinders and the upper bearing cover halves of the crankshaft. . The bearing support is attached to the crankcase upper section by 4 bolts per bearing cover. among other things. The crankcase lower section is designed as a bearing support and carries the lower bearing cover halves. The upper section contains.

 coupled to a single crankshaft. Volkswagen Group is the only automotive manufacturer currently producing W16 engines. Latest W Engine- The W16 Engine A W16 engine is a sixteen cylinder piston i nternal combustion engine.  . All W16 engines consist of two 'double- row’ banks of eight cylinders.

. Why Called SUPER ENGINE? The Bugatti Veyron 16. Bugatti once again claimed the land speed record for production cars on July 4. The Bugatti Veyron features a super W16 engine—16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders.4 is the fastest supercar in the world. with a proven top speed of over 400 km/h (407 km/h). 2010 with the Veyron Super Sport version with an unbelievable speed of 432kph.
