W-32 64 Valve 32 Cylinder Functional Engine

Meet the mini W-32 32 cylinder engine. This little monster was built by José Manuel Hermo Barreiro, known to modelers and gearheads simply as Patelo, has built a 64 valves, 32 cylinders engine that runs off of compressed air otherwise known as, the Patelo 32 cylinder engine.

The W-32 refers to how the cylinders of this 32 cylinder engine is arranged. You’ve probably heard of V6 engine, or I6 (inline 6 engines). V6 or V8 engine have their cylinders arranged in a V shape such that the cylinders are arranged in 2 rows of 3 for a V6 or 2 rows of 4 for a V8. The cylinders are attached to the crankshaft in the middle (base of the V) and the cylinder heads are pointed outwards forming the two arms of the V.

In a W engine configuration, you basically have 2 V16 engines mounted beside each other, each with their own crankshaft, driving the 32 cylinder engine. As you can imagine, 2 V’s (VV) mounted next to each other, looks like a W. Hence the W-32 engine.

This model 32 cylinder engine is made from 850 pieces, 632 screws and took about 2520 hours to put together. This little w-32 32 cylinder engine is by far the coolest little engine I have ever seen. Watch this little mechanical marvel in action and you’ll see what I mean.

After this don’t forget to check out another work of art, the Do Nothing Machine.
