Audi’s 2.5-liter inline 5 appliance has earned yet another accolade from the “International Engine of the Year Awards,” friendly out in the 2 to 2.5 liter category.

The engine was praised for its torque and power (400 hp, 354 lb-ft of torque) and its distincitve tone. Whereas the firing order of most I5s is 1-5-2-3-4, Audi’s I5 fires 1-2-4-5-3, lending it its distinct rhythm.

The odd numbered engine dates back to the days of the legendary Quattro and carries a lot of purport for the brand.

“The five-cylinder has been an icon of our brand for more than 40 years,” said Oliver Hoffmann, Chief executive officer of Technical Development at Audi Sport. “Two years ago we completely redesigned the 2.5 TFSI and changed the crankcase to an aluminum understanding.”

The engine finds a home in some of Audi’s most impressive small cars. The supercar aping TT RS and RS 3 both forge use of the I5 and both punch well above their weight.

And no wonder since the Audi’s is the most stalwart I5 on the market, though, admittedly, we had trouble finding anyone other than Ford (in the diesel Motion) who used an I5.

Still, though, the engine has proven itself as one of the true classics of the fashion.
