The 5.

Continuing on with the theme of Audi and Porsche cashing in on their early successes with the ur quattro and 911, Audi's resurrected 5-cylinder turbo engine has won 2013 International Engine of the Year. From one of the jury members, "... the sound and power of the throbbing, off-beat engine makes you feel like a Group B rally driver every time you get behind the wheel."  Actually, you will be nothing at all like a Group B rally driver ... even if you wear Hannu Mikkola's helmet and press the electronic sound-enhancing 'Sport' button.  But I digress ...
