Cars with biggest engines
Top 40 cars with largest engines. Updated September 2022.
Bigger is almost always better when it comes to performance car engines. Larger displacement implies more torque and usually more cylinders with higher peak power.
Due to emissions concerns and taxes based on engine displacement, car manufacturers have benn "downsizing" engine capacity across all segments - what used to small 4 cylinder engine now becomes even smaller 3, and what used to be a V6 will likely be replaced by turbo 4.
For supercars taxes and emissions are less relevant, and large 8, 10 or even 12 cylinder engines with displacement over 5000 cc are common.
This list ranks cars based on displacement (cubic capacity) and only includes cars designed and manufactured since 1990. This age limit filters out classic cars which would otherwise crowd this list, leaving little room for contemporary models that most people can buy today.
By far the most frequent name on this list is "Viper" - in 1991 Dodge designed a sports car with unusually large, truck-derived V10 engine, which still today is one of the largest ever used in passenger car.
