A W16 engine is a sixteen cylinder piston internal combustion engine in a four-bank W configuration.

Volkswagen Group's design is a stretched form of its W12 engine, which is itself based on technology from its VR6 engine.

The VR6 engine is a narrow-angle V6 engine, which could also be described as a staggered-inline six-cylinder piston engine.

Joining two such designs together into a W engine creates a design that is much shorter than an inline engine with the same number of cylinders, but not too much wider.

Volkswagen Group's W12 engines utilise two VR6-like sets of cylinders mated at 72 degrees, and the W8 engine consisted of two VR4 engines at the 72-degree angle.

The Volkswagen Group W16 engine as configured for the Bugatti Veyron EB16.4 is a 16 cylinder quad-turbocharged engine with four valves per cylinder.
