### Abstract

We construct new families of smooth Fano fourfolds with Picard rank $1$ which contain open $\mathbb A^1$-cylinders, that is, Zariski open subsets of the form $Z \times \mathbb A^1$, where $Z$ is a quasiprojective variety. In particular, we show that every Mukai fourfold of genus $8$ is cylindrical and there exists a family of cylindrical Gushel-Mukai fourfolds.

Keywords: Fano variety, cylinders
