Cars with biggest cylinders

Top 40 cars with largest pistons and cylinders. Updated March 2021.

Larger pistons will generate more torque and power, and bigger, stronger moving parts will last longer.

The price to pay is more mass and more vibration, which is why cars have multiple cylinders and we don't drive around in cars powered by oversize dirtbike engines.

Having multiple cylinders solves the vibration and engine smoothness, but having both big and multiple cylinders is really the best for maximum power.

Large piston multi-cylinder engines are problematic due to size of the engine, overall mass and manufacturing cost. Not to mention fuel efficiency and emissions.
