Audi S8 5.2-liter V10 nominated as Engine of the Year

Posted on 19 April, 2008

The 5.2 V10 engine from the Audi S8 has been nominated as International Engine of the Year. Go for it!

The “International Engine of the Year Award” is a big deal as far as bragging rights go in this industry. Think of it like the Academy Awards for engines. However, instead of members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voting, you have 62 renowned motoring journalists, from 30 countries, casting ballots for their favorite fossil fuel burner.

Let’s sit back and listen to the orchestra for a bit… the winners don’t get announced until May 7, at Engine Expo 2008, in Stuttgart, Germany.
