Not really surpising at all really. I don't know if you have had the pleasure of reving an S54 out to redline over and over, but it has to be one of the sweetest 6 cylinders motor ever.

I love it!

The results are hardly surprising, BMW makes some of the best engines in the business.

Not for the first time, BMW scored a major success at the International Engine of the Year Award. The five-litre V10 engine already available in the M5 (see launch report) and due in the M6 Coupé was the overall winner, and also scooped the awards for Best New Engine, Best Engine Over Four Litres and Best Performance Engine.

"Winning overall honours in the Engine of the Year awards is a huge achievement and one which rewards our engineers' capabilities and enthusiasm," said BMW spokesman Bernhard Gobmeier. "By making a product that has variable peak power outputs and low down torque combined with high revving characteristics, the M5 driver has at their disposal one of the most powerful yet flexible production engines in the world."

Two other BMW engines also scored class awards - the three-litre twin turbo diesel found in the 535d (which was second overall) and the M3's 3.2-litre petrol unit.
