This X20 engine is two V10s stuck together!

What happens when you take two V10 engines, gear them together and slap a Lamborghini gearbox on the other side? Well, you end up with an X20 engine, like this one built by the guys at Villiers for a Connaught supercar!

  • Why does it make only 400hp? The entire point of small capacity cylinders is to have lighter pistons and lower piston speeds so you can rev higher, it should easily rev over 10.000 and there is no excuse for this thing to make less than 800hp.

    • True it can... but the fact the parts are smaller and theres more of them means the "Load" is spread out more so not only will the car be smoother, it will also be potentially more reliable however it comes with a tradeoff that if something goes wrong it's going to be much more severe... 100hp in each cylinder will have alot more "Stress" in a 400hp 4 cyl motor than 20hp per cylinder in a 20 cylinder motor.

  • When you start getting to this size of cylinders the mass outweighs the bhp gain. They figured this out in the 1930s. It's better using turbos like v8 twin-turbo or v10 twin etc. Unless you're just after torque, which is useless above 1000 pounds-feet in a conventional 2 wheel drive sports car.
