Come 9th May 2007, we’ll know the results of the 9th International Engine of the Year Awards. Last year BMW dominated the awards and won the main title for the second consecutive year with it’s 5.0 litre V10 found in the BMW M5 and M6.
This year’s contenders include Volkswagen’s 1.4 litre TSI engine which employs innovative use of both a supercharger and a turbocharger, Porsche’s 3.6 litre twin turbo which is the first petrol turbocharged engine to use a Variable Geometry Turbocharger, and Toyota’s 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine which is supposedly the lightest combustion engine on sale today. Of course, there’s Volkswagen’s 2.0 potent litre Turbo FSI.
For now, let’s recap the results for 2005 and 2006 in the posts linked below.
