The BMW N54 gets its 6th straight victory in the 2.5 to 3.0 liter class which likely will be its last award as well with the move to the N55 in most models. The only other BMW motor to win six straight times is the S54 from the E46 M3.
In exciting news the new N20 turbo four cylinder took a well deserved victory in the hotly contested 1.8 to 2.0 liter category. It replaces the previous winner which was also a BMW motor, the N47 diesel.
The N18 1.6 liter turbo four cylinder from Mini wins the 1.4 liter to 1.8 liter category for the second straight year. It's predecessor also won from 2007-2010.
Great work by BMW who continues to show everyone it is the world's best engine builder without equal. We just hope with the naturally aspirated motors exiting the competition BMW is still able to dominate the way they have with the competition all adopting similar turbocharged and direct injected styles.
