Answer

V-configuration engines were designed because they are compact and can be lightweight. A inline 6 cylinder for instance requires more room because of its length; a V6 can be shorter and therefore lighter, more compact and more powerful. V engines also allow cylinders to be close together so they can share rod journals, which also saves weight.

v8 because it has more cylinders which means more horsepower, but there are other engines that are more powerful than a v8. they are v10 and v12

To my knowledge, no past or current BMW model has ever had a V6 engine. BMW has used V8's, V10's, and even V12's but no V6. However, BMW is thinking of putting a V6 into their new M3 model, since they are downsizing from a V8. They will more likely use a straight six with some sort of turbo I believe.

Every single lamborghini has more than a V8 engine. Regular lamborghinis have a V10 or V12.

ford uses duratec motors for there 4 cylinders and V6 engines. They go through the popular Triton for there V8 and V10 engines. and obviously ford uses the powerstroke deisle motor.

B1S1means...B1 means the side of the V6,V8,V10 engines where is situated the number 1 cylinder. B2 means the other side of the V6, V8, V10 engine. On straight line engine they only use B1. S1 means the sensor upstream or before the catalyst converter and S2 means the sensor after the catalytic converter.

The V refers to the shape of the engine - the cylinders are arranged in a V shape, if you were to look at the engine from its front (note that some engines are mounted transversely, so their fronts may point to the side of the vehicle). The number denotes the number of cylinders. A V6 is a V shaped six cylinder (3 cylinders in each bank of the V). A v8, v10, and v12 should be self explanatory after that. Volkswagen makes a W12, which is composed of two connected V6s.

No, there never has been a V6 Corvette The 1953 through '55 model years had inline 6-cylinder engines. V8 engines (265 cu. in.) were an option for 1955. From 1956 through today, all Corvettes have had various V8 engines from the factory.
