    Every "gas-powered" engine has to have cylinders. A 0-cylinder engine does not exist, but maybe your question is referring to some kind of an electric vehicle.

    It must be a riddle.

    There are several types of engines that don't have cylinders

    Piston(s) + cylinder(s) = reciprocating engine.

    umm...electric car maybe? cylinders are the number of pistons there are pumping to make your car go...the more cylinders, the more power basically...but a combustion engine has to have atleast one piston that I know of, so in my opinion this has to be an electric car...

    It is an unconventional engine, probably a rotary. Rotary engines have no cylinders.

    Absolutely NOTHING. There is no such thing as a ZERO cylinder engine.

    It probably doesn't have an engine and shouldn't be bought unless you plan on putting one in or building one.

    It's a miss print or typo.
