If you are looking for the State of the Art in automotive power, we have several Bugatti Veyrons for sale. They were the first production car to have a W-16 engine, which is based on the Audi/Bentley W12. It can be tracked all the way back to the Jetta’s legendary VR6, but times are changing. Everyone is jumping on the electric bandwagon and is making the most powerful gas engines looks like dinosaurs.

However, CarAdvice has is reporting that Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed the engine’s departure to them. He told them there will be no new 16-cylinder engine and that the current one is the “last of its kind.” Whatever powers the Divo’s successor will have some sort of electric system, and you know it will be powerful. The Chiron offers 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, but it comes at a price for the manufacturer. 

The time it takes to build each engine and the fact it shares nothing with any other brand have sealed the fate of the sixteen-cylinder. Because it fires multiple cylinders at once, you do need to experience the smoothness and the power that Bugatti offers.
