  1. Why 16/4?

    I understand the 16 part (cos it has 16 cylinders obviosly) but what the 4 about? Is it cos it has four cylinder banks or somethin?<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. No, the cylinders are arranged in a 4-4-4-4 kind of way. So 4 rows of 4 cylinders side by side.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. 16 cylinders, 4 turbos.
     
  4. it means 16 valves, and 4 turbos. just like mustang said.<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. No, it means 4 turbos.<!-- Signature -->

  7. as 'stang said, its 16 for the amount of cylinders, 4 turbos.
     
  8. Actually, it's called 16/4 due to 16 cylinders, 4 turbochargers, 4 valves/cylinder, and 4WD. Look at the members only area of the Bugatti website.
     
  9. And Veryon is named after a famous racer, i think.

    16 cylinders, 4 turbos/4WD<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. i think you're all right. 4 turbos. 4wheel drive. 4 banks with 4 cylinders each. is it 4 valves per cylinder? i hope so cos then it would have 64 valves which is rediculous not 80 which is just #$%#ing criminal. the EB110 had 5 per cylinder - 60 god damn valves thats already enough bugatti!<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. The car indeed has 4 valves/cylinder.
