The International Engine of the Year Awards celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and to celebrate, the people behind them have created a very special award, dubbed ‘Best of the Best’. Which means it’s an award that recognises all the overall winners over the awards’ 20-year history.
Naturally, only one can win, and you might even disagree with a few – or indeed all – of them. For example, while there are a few BMW engines in this list, there isn’t the quietly magnificent 2.8-litre straight-six from, say, um, an E36 328i Sport. Good, solid engine, at least in this humble writers’ opinion.
Want to find out what the International Engine of the Year Awards recognises as the best engines of the last 20 years? Then do the honourable thing and click forth.
Once you’re done, tell us your favourite engine from the past 20 years. Assuming it’s not on this list. And it’s not a 328i Sport’s straight-six.
