This X20 engine is two V10s stuck together!

What happens when you take two V10 engines, gear them together and slap a Lamborghini gearbox on the other side? Well, you end up with an X20 engine, like this one built by the guys at Villiers for a Connaught supercar!
Check out the Connaught brand here:

Interesting in that it is the first X20. But no mention of the Rolls-Royce Vulture X24 that first ran in 1937.

Need to talk to the tractor-pull guys about putting engines together. This is just two engines, not one. Doesn't hold up to a VR6, W12, or W16.

Why does it make only 400hp? The entire point of small capacity cylinders is to have lighter pistons and lower piston speeds so you can rev higher, it should easily rev over 10.000 and there is no excuse for this thing to make less than 800hp.

I want to see the crankshaft/rods on this thing, fitting 20 rods on to a crankshaft without master/slaverods or something similar must mean very narrow bearings

Looks like it's all aluminum. Curious what the engine weight alone is. With it being opposed my brain went to putting it in my airplane. LOL But for that size and weight it would definitely have to have large boost or too nice superchargers! Perhaps a boat?

40mpg from a 2-litre V10? Yeah right - a miracle of internal friction reduction - but these engines are a triumph of fun over function and I'm sure they have fun building them.

How many of you are comparing an experimental engine, from an engineering company that very few people have ever heard of, to well known car manufacturers that have been producing cars for decades and spend millions in r&d on one single engine. 🤦‍♂️

An X20 with 400hp? Ok, what am I missing? A mildly worked k20 surpasses this easily. I get that they do it because they can etc etc.
D4RKHOUND преди 6 дни
True it can... but the fact the parts are smaller and theres more of them means the "Load" is spread out more so not only will the car be smoother, it will also be potentially more reliable however it comes with a tradeoff that if something goes wrong it's going to be much more severe... 100hp in each cylinder will have alot more "Stress" in a 400hp 4 cyl motor than 20hp per cylinder in a 20 cylinder motor.

Overengineering the combustion engine really... Thankfully we can move forward with electric vehicles, since batteries are just starting to catch up since the Porsche P1 in 1898 (I am exaggerating a bit but it captures how slow batteries are progressing)

There are no v10 engines but vr10 engines. The VR form was developed and used by Volkswagen several years ago.

When you start getting to this size of cylinders the mass outweighs the bhp gain. They figured this out in the 1930s. It's better using turbos like v8 twin-turbo or v10 twin etc. Unless you're just after torque, which is useless above 1000 pounds-feet in a conventional 2 wheel drive sports car.

Why not a x 24 and take advantage of 6 cylinder primary balance. Also, two cranks is just a terrible compromise but I guess there's not enough length on a single crank for 20 con rods.

I bet that will be super-easy to fix when something breaks. You: It's a bespoke 400hp 4 Litre X-20 forty valve with a magic bellhousing. What your mechanic hears: NOPE NUP NOOOOO NO WAY NO HOW NOPE. Although I suppose if you can afford the car that this engine's going into, you just have your man take care of it for you.
We found the lost 2.0-litre V10 sportscar!
