Wow... so they go to the tourble of making a V16 but can't design a body that does not look like a Chinese-Diablo. :AH-HA_wink:

The most retarded thing of all is the transverse mounted placement of the V16. Yes I'm serious, & chain transfer case to the trans.

It was designed by Marcello Gandini, the same guy who designed the Diablo (before Chrysler toned it down).

And the transverse-mounted engine was a necessity since the engine was so long. The V16 was practically two V8s mounted tail-to-tail with the driveshaft to the transaxle coming out of the middle of the engine block perpendicular to the crankshafts.

The engine was 4 1/2 feet long (as I recall) and featured two crankshafts, eight camshafts, and 64 valves. The multiple camshafts and crankshafts were necessary because four-foot long shafts would have too much flex.

What an ugly piece of junk; the stacked double hideaway headlights are priceless! How come the red one has Ferrari Testarossa cheese graters on the side but the black one doesn't?

different years i think it went from 95-2001

Actually, I think the very limited production of the V16T was only one year, back in 1991. The difference might have been between prototype and "production" (or just different prototypes).
