International Engine of The Year LogoThe results for the 2008 International Engine the Year Awards 2008 will be announced on the 7th of May 2008.

Personally I can’t wait to see if BMW retains its engine throne or not. BMW has scooped more trophies for engine excellence than any other company in the Awards 10-year history, and if you drive a car with one of their old 1990s engines today, you’ll be amazed at how much torque their “outdated” normally aspirated engines put out across the rev range compared to current generation engines from many manufacturers. It’s no wonder they’ve only recently resorted to turbocharging.

This year’s International Engine of the Year Awards should be an interesting one as there are many new entries this year. Here are some of the new engines that will be considered for the trophies:

The following are the categories for the awards: Best New Engine of the Year, Best Fuel Economy, Best Performance Engine, sub 1 litre engine, 1.0 to 1.4 litre engine, 1.4 to 1.8 litre engine, 1.8 to 2.0 litre engine, 2.0 to 2.5 litre engine, 2.5 to 3.0 litre engine, 3.0 to 4.0 litre engine, above 4.0 litre engine.
