All Petrol engines: BMW 318i, 320i, 325i, 330i, 335i.
How do you improve an engine that has already won the Engine of the Year Award six times? With a Twin Scroll turbocharger, Valvetronic and direct petrol injection for a start.
BMW will continue to develop turbo charged petrol engines in the future although their petrol percentage is falling steadily with the popularity of the higher mpg diesels.
For their first GDI turbo compare their 2006 designed direct-injection, Bi-Turbo Inline Six. http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006/03 ... s_new.html

Audi will bring the A1 e-tron which will run with a 20 hp Wankel similarly to the system Autogyro described. Chevy Volt 2011 is supposed to be also similar with a range extender Wankel. If this is successful BMW will not be far behind.
