There is no question that BMW has some serious engine technology in its arsenal, and now those engines have more awards to show just how good they really are. BMW has won its third consecutive International Engine of the Year award, due this time to the incredible twin-turbo 3.0L inline six that resides in the 335i's engine bay. The 300hp (or more) motor combines blistering performance (car magazines report 0-60 times in the 4.8-5.1 range) with very good fuel economy and virtually no turbo lag. It won three awards in all, with the Bavarians also taking the trophy for Best New Engine and best 2.5L to 3.0L engine.
BMW didn't stop its winning ways with the twin-turbo 3.0L, either. The 1.6L turbo four found in the Mini Cooper S and Peugeot 207, the 2.5L engine in the standard 3-Series, and the 5.0L V10 that powers the M5 and M6 were all winners. Toyota and VW each came away with two victories, and Porsche won its first ever International Engine award by virtue of the 3.6 turbo in the 911. Check out all the winners in the press release after the jump.
