There are no engines with efficiency as of 100% ,believe me :).

Most of the Cars that run have an engine efficiency of 65%.

At the same time 100% efficiency for an heat engine is imaginary.

You can have a detailed reference below :

no , it will be the voilation of carnot principle,

carnot engine  have maximum theoretical efficiency till now which is not possible in practical due to involvement of irreversibility and losses.
