What engine is the 10 cylinder V-engine:  10 cylinder V-engine is a ten-cylinder piston engine where two banks of five cylinders are arranged in a V configuration around a common crankshaft.

What is the 10 cylinder V-engine displacement: it is in a range between 4805 cc and 8382 cc in recent model line up powertrain.

How much is the power of the 10 cylinder V-engine: the power of the 10 cylinder v-engine is in a range from 300 bhp to 649 bhp

Which cars use 10 cylinder V-engine: V10 engines are much less common than V8 and V12 engines. Several V10 diesel engines have been produced since 1965, and V10 petrol engines for road cars were first produced in 1991 with the release of the Dodge Viper. The Volkswagen V10 TDI is a turbocharged V10 engine which was produced from 2002 to 2010 for use in the Volkswagen Phaeton luxury sedan and Volkswagen Touareg SUV. Mainly usage is for luxury cars, sports cars and commercial vehicles.

Recent V10 powertrain used for cars:

1991–2017 Dodge Viper engine

1994–2003 Chrysler Magnum V10

1997–2021 Ford Triton engine

2005–2010 BMW S85

2003–present Lamborghini V10

2003–2007 Porsche V10 engine

2006–present Audi V10 FSI

2008–2010 Audi V10 TFSI

The V10 configuration does not have perfect engine balance, since an unbalanced rocking couple is caused by each cylinder bank functioning as a straight-five engine. Therefore, balance shafts are used to reduce the vibrations in a V10 engine in order to eliminate the vertical moment vibration caused by the plane imbalance, similar to an 5 cylinder inline.

Since a V10 is simply two 5 cylinder inline mated to a common crankshaft, it sees many of the same benefits. This includes the fact that the reciprocating mass forces are balanced and compared with a V12, a V10 has fewer cylinders and thus can have less reciprocating mass.

Smoothness: a V12 is more  balanced and has more overlap between power strokes, making it a smoother engine layout than the V10.


What is the ten cylinder V angle: Audi, Bmw, Dodge Viper, Ford V10 engines has 90 degrees V banks angle .


What is the firing order for a 10 cylinder engine:

Dodge Viper V10


BMW S85, Ford V10, Audi V10    


Racing use of 10 cylinder V-engine:  one of the first known V10 engines designed for motor racing was a 3.5 L (214 cu in) prototype Formula One engine built by Alfa Romeo in 1986. Originally intended for the Ligier Formula One team, this partnership collapsed without the engine being used in any races.

The most widespread use of V10 engines has been in Formula One racing. Following a ban on turbocharged engines after 1988, the first V10 Formula One cars were the 1989 McLaren MP4/5 and Williams FW12. V10 engines were used by the majority of teams by the 1996 season, following reduction in displacement from 3.5 to 3.0 L (214 to 183 cu in). The V10 seemed the best compromise between the lower weight of a V8 and the higher power of a V12. Renault F1 used a flatter 110 degrees angle in 2002 and 2003, but reverted to a more conventional 72 degrees following the change in rules which dictated that an engine must last two race weekends. In a further change to the rules, V10s were banned for the 2006 season onwards in favor of 2.4 L V8s.

In sports car racing, the first V10 engine was used by the Peugeot 905 in the two final races of the 1990 season. This was followed by the Judd GV10 engine being used by several teams during the 1991 season and the Toyota TS010 that debuted in the last race of the season. The Audi R15 TDI was a Le Mans Prototype (LMP) racing car that used a turbocharged diesel V10 engine and competed in various endurance races in 2009 and 2010. In 2010, the Audi R15 TDI set the current distance record for the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
