    2010 International Engine of the Year Results - BMW wins 4 categories

    Click here to enlarge

    The 2010 International Engine of the Years Awards have taken place. BMW took home awards in 4 categories. Many people treat like this like the Oscars of the automotive motor world.

    The 1.6 liter turbo motor in the Mini led things off the for the BMW group. This motor won the award in the 1.4-1.8 liter category for the 4th straight year.

    A new BMW motor appeared on the list with the BMW N47 2.0 liter Diesel taking home the award for best 1.8-2.0 liter motor. It ousted the Audi 2.0 liter FSI motor which won the previous year. VW/Audi had dominated this category since 2005. The S2000 F20C took the crown in this category before that from 2000-2004.

    The BMW N54 once against dominated the 2.5-3.0 liter category. This is the fourth straight win for the N54. The best competition in this categorically ironically comes from BMW themselves with the N55.

    The BMW S65 took the 3.0-4.0 liter engine category for the third straight year. We expect this motor to continue to win this category while the M3 stays in production however there is strong competition from the Porsche flat-6's in this displacement range.

    In the above 4.0 liter category we expect the new twin turbo V8 in the M5 to take the crown back from the Mercedes M156 in next years awards.

    BMW continues on at the top of the manufacturer standings as the most awarded engine manufacturer in the competitions history. The current standings are as follows:

    It started in 1999 and is voted on by a panel of automotive journalists from around the world. Excellent idea that has evolved nicely and been executed very well into a prestigious award.

    The only award a domestic ever won was GM winning a concept design category... which doesn't really count.
