A flat-16 is an internal combustion engine in flat configuration, having 16 cylinders.
There are few examples.
The British engine manufacturing company Coventry Climax developed a racing flat-16 unit, the FWMW, in the 1960s, towards the end of the 1.5-litre Formula One. The Brabham and Lotus teams designed cars for this engine but it was never raced because of the continuing success of the previous engine, the FWMV V8.
