The BMW 801 was a powerful German air-cooled radialaircraft engine built by BMW and used in a number of German military aircraft of World War II.
The resulting proposal was a two-row version of the 132, the 1,400 hp (1,029 kW) BMW 139.
Differences between the 139 and the new design, named the 801 after BMW was given a new block of engine numbers to use, were fairly minor and limited primarily to details except for 14-cylinders instead of 18.
