Bugatti 16.4 Veyron
The sports car, capable of more than 400 km/h, is driven by a 16-cylinder mid-engine, that at 710 mm long is no larger than a conventional V12 unit, and due to its lightweight construction weighs only about 400 kilos. Its compact dimensions are due to the unique arrangement of its cylinder banks in a W configuration.
Cadillac Series 452A V16
The 1930 Cadillac Sixteen was the first year for the overhead-valve, 452-cubic-inch engine producing 165 horsepower and 320 foot-pounds of torque. The Sixteen was theoretically available in 33 different models, sub-models, or trim variations ranging from a $5,350 two-passenger roadster to an $8,750 town cabriolet.
Cadillac Sixteen Concept
The name speaks to the car's powerful 16-cylinder, 1000-horsepower engine and Cadillac's heritage as a maker of fine luxury automobiles. Cadillac's reputation grew exponentially during the '30s in no small part because of the development of the automotive industry's first V-16.
Marmon Model 16
Two U.S. companies built V-16 powered automobiles: Cadillac and Marmon. The former survived the tough economic times of the 1930's, the latter did not.
This 16-cylinder Maserati was built by mounting two Tipo 26B inline-8 cylinder engines in a common crankcase with two crankshafts geared together. The result was a power output of around 280 to 305 horsepower from 4.0 liters.
Miller Championship Race Car
The origin of the engine for the only V16-powered race car built by Harry Miller begins with a 1930 Cord passenger car. As compensation for development work done on the Cord front drive system by Miller and his staff, the Auburn Automobile Co. paid Harry $1,000 per month and gave him a new Cord Brougham Sedan.
Peerless V-16 Prototype
As with all Peerless cars, this prototype is built largely of lightweight aluminum to a design by Murphy. Peerless was one of the very few companies to use a V-16 engine, and the 465-cubic-inch V-16 in this prototype offered 173 bhp, enabling the car to cruise at speeds around 100 mph in great comfort.
