International Engine of the Year!

3-litre to 4-litre

1. BMW 4-litre V8 (M3) 331

2. Porsche 3.6-litre Turbo (911 Turbo, GT2) 255

3. Nissan 3.8-litre Twin Turbo (GT-R) 144

4. BMW 3.2-litre 6-cylinder (Z4 M) 99

5. Toyota Hybrid 3.5-litre V6 (GS450h) 88

6. Audi 3.6-litre FSI (Q7, VW Touareg, Porsche Cayenne) 71

The only thing I donít understand is how can the Porsche win the best sport engine when it canít beat the M3 in its own category??

Not surprised to see the 123d walking away with top honours of BEST NEW ENGINE OF 2008. We are currently in an ever increasing GREEN world.

Congrats BMW.....

Surprised the 911 Turbo motor does well as it does considering its ancient lineage and dead future.

The 997 tt won performance engine of the year by a few points from the M5, M3. I drove one recently and it is coarse, it totally lacks the mechanical refinement of the 4.0 M3.

p.s. M3 should have won 3-4, overall, overall performance and not cause I own one but because it is really that good!
