2003 Phantom — Launched in January 2003, this is the first model from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited, a BMW subsidiary having no technical or corporate connection with the original Rolls-Royce company. The car has a 6.75 L V12 engine from BMW, but most other components are unique to the car.

In 2006 the 101 EX, a Grand Touring coupé prototype based on the 100EX. The car is 9.5 inches shorter than the Phantom sedan, power comes from the Phantom’s 6.75-litre V12 engine. The Rolls-Royce 100 EX (EX stands for experimental model) has a 9.0 litre V16 engine.

The 2000 Rolls-Royce Corniche is powered by a 325 hp (240 kW) 6.75 L turbocharged V8. The Corniche’s engine is capable of enormous torque, providing 738 N·m (544 ft·lbf) at 2,100 rpm. The car is operated via a four-speed automatic transmission. It has a top speed of 135 mph (215 km/h) and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of eight seconds. The convertible, weighing 6,836 lb (3,101 kg), was built more for comfort than for speed.

A V16 engine is a V engine with 16 cylinders. Engines of this number of cylinders are not common.

A V16 engine is perfectly balanced regardless of the V angle without requiring counter-rotating balancing shafts which are necessary on large Straight-4 or counterweighted crankshaft like the 90° V8 engine configuration. In addition angles of 45° and 135° Vs optimal solutions, for even firing and non split crankshaft journals.

V16 engines have been used in certain luxury and high-performance automobiles, mostly for their smoothness (low vibration) since it is possible to make a V8 or V12 engine as large and powerful as one could possibly want in an automotive application. Greater numbers of cylinders are also perceived as a status symbol.

Another use for the V16 powerplant is in large diesel engines.

Here, manufacturers tend to work with a common cylinder size across a wide range of engines, and size the engine by the number of cylinders for different power requirements. Thus, many users of large diesel engines such as railroad locomotives use V16 powerplants, including many EMD (Electro-Motive Diesel, Inc., formerly a GM division} locomotives.
