Engine of the year

BMW’s 3.0-litre twin turbo engine has been named as International Engine of the Year for 2007.

Each winner of the 11 engine categories were automatically entered for consideration to claim the overall title. BMW had seven winning engines in different categories.

The judges awarded the 3.0-litre twin turbo with 395 points, 136 points clear of Volkswagen’s 1.4-litre FSI/TSI engine which came in second place.

Graham Johnson, co-chairman of the awards summed up: "I hope this victory encourages BMW to turbocharge more of its petrol engines."
