Well in terms of performance it comes down to displacement and what other things you attach to the thing, e.g. super/turbocharger, cold air intakes, etc. In terms of comfort, generally the more cylinders you have the more comfortable it will be, this is because the engine vibration and movement is more spread out and the timing allows each vibration to cancel out the one before it. Of course if your suspension feels like it made out of steel rods or inversely, hot wallpaper paste, then it won't matter if you have an engine from a Bugatti Veyron or a Geo metro in relation to comfort.
what the other guy said, but u have to remember tht there is also weight tht has to be taking into account, and how much ur wallet is comfortable spending at the pumps
The V-12 engine configuration has been used previously by automakers and this is the best. It worked pretty and become very popular.
I disagree, assuming both engines have equal volumetric efficiency and cc per cylinder the W16 will produce higher bhp and torque values than the V12 as vee type engines are unbalanced .'. the higher number of cylinders in the W16 mean that there is a power stroke every 45 degrees as opposed to every 60 degrees from the V12 which gives you better balance and more power.
We can not say that the particular one is the best because both are being used and there are some merits and demerits of both but if we compare between v12 and w16 then v12 is quite better than w16.
That is to say, because I agree it gives better balance. ____________________________ Get busy livin' or get busy dyin Check out my USB Flash Drive Blog.
