I agree,it is called a inline engine in Europe, you have also a V-engine, a W-engine, a boxer engine and a Wankel engine

a "W" engine is what is used in the Bugatti Veyron.

I know it is used in the Bugatti Veyron that's how i get to know the W-engine

in america we call it a strait 4 so its just a dialect barrier

But there is always one thang that still bothering me:
every high performance V8 build in th U.S. has an underlying camshaft while the most European or Asian has an overhead camshaft, and even a double overhead camshaft.
So, what's that about?

Might have something to do with the fact that the engine in a Corvette (well known for a V8) is a truck engine, I believe.

possible, but the boring/stroke length comparissen is the difference:the one with more stroke length compared to the boring are made for much torque at low rpm. but the ones with a short stroke but with big boring are made for high rpm.

beats me maybe their is a patent thing that they wanted to bypass so basically just built it upside down. i have no idea that is just my best guess
