Reading top to bottom and left to right. I never called the engine an N65. Stop being obtuse.
An achievement of this calibre is only exceeded by the string of successes claimed by the fourth BMW Group award-winner in 2012. For the fifth time in a row, the V8 engine of the BMW M3 high-performance sports car provides the measure of all things in the 3.0-litre to 4.0-litre displacement class.
The BMW S65
is a V8 DOHC piston engine which replaced the (straight-6) S54 and was produced from 2007–present (as of August 2012).
Derived from the BMW S85 V10 engine used in the M5/M6, it shares the same basic architecture and aluminium construction. It was introduced in the E92 M3 and was chosen as International Engine of the Year for the 3.0 to 4.0 L category in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
Dear god man, it's called reading.
