2006 Engine Awards - type's'
I see the International Engine Awards have been announced for 2006 (usually these are dominated by BMW and Honda but VW have done well this year):-
Best Overall Engine = BMW 5l V10 (M5)
Best New Engine = VW 1.4l TSI
Best Fueal Efficient Engine = Toyota 1.5 hybrid (Prius)
Best Performance Engines = BMW 5l V10
Best Sub 1 litre = Honda 1.0 hybrid (Insight)
Best 1.0 -1.4 = VW 1.4l TSI
Best 1.4 - 1.8 = Toyota 1.5 hybrid (Prius)
Best 1.8 - 2.0 = VW 2.0l FSI Turbo (Golf GTI)
Best 2.0 - 2.5 = Subaru 2.5 Turbo
Best 2.5 - 3.0 = BMW 3.0l twin turbo diesel (535d)
Best 3.0 - 4.0 = BMW 3.2l (M3)
Best 4.0 + = yes you guessed it the 5.-l V10 in the M5.
2006 Engine Awards - smokescreen
I maybe asking a daft question but why is the 5l v10 so good? Due to 500bhp without forced induction?
