Q3. The Bugatti W16 badged engine is the first and only production W16 engine in the world.

b) four rows of four cylinders,

A. It is a sixteen cylinder W engine, of four rows of four cylinders, and is created by joining two imaginary VR8-engined 15° cylinder banks at the crankcase, and placed on a single crankshaft, with each cylinder 'double-bank' now at a 90° vee-angle.
