Bugatti W16 Engine

The Bugatti W16 engine was crafted with performance in mind. This Bugatti engine utilizes turbochargers, which pressurize the air coming into the cylinder of the engine so that the cylinder can hold more air, thus providing more engine power. This allows the W16 engine to earn a maximum turbo boost of 18 PSI to double the output power of its engine.

Because Bugatti uses the turbochargers to provide additional power, the size of the engine is eight liters. However, the Bugatti W16 powertrain requires four separate turbochargers to maintain its impressive horsepower. And to keep the RPM redline high without sacrificing a lower lag when you accelerate, the number of cylinders was arranged to have a 16-cylinder engine.

Bugatti also added two V8 engines onto one another and has both of them share the same crankshaft, providing the 'W' configuration of the two V8 engines. And that's how the W16 engine received its name.

Bugatti W16 Engine Specs:

  • 8.0-liter W16 engine
