The V3 engine is a V engine with three cylinders. A V engine with the usual two banks, one bank contains two cylinders, the other only one. A rare configuration, it has only been used for two-stroke racing motorcycles.

The first example was by DKW in the 1960s.

Honda later revived the layout:

A related layout was the W-3 or 'fan' engine, although this placed all three cylinders in the same plane, but none of them in the same bank. This was used for the 1905-1915 four-stroke Anzani engine, which was used in motorcycle and aircraft applications.
