Ford Wins International Engine of The Year Award.

Fords subsiduary Mazda, has won the International Engine of The Year Award for the Renesis Rotary Engine.
It also won the Award for best Engine Award 2.5 to 3.0litre class.
The Renesis beat BMW, Mercedes, etc.

Well done to mazda, but claiming this as a ford engine is a bit of a stretch...

LOL. Nah Ford can't really take any credit for it. Here I was too thinking the IL6 Turbo won engine of the year. I did hear about the RENESIS winning, but it never once crossed my mind that "hey it's a Ford".

I thought a rotary engine is 1.3 litres... how could it win the 2.5 - 3.0 litre class?

Although I think I heard Mazda were developing an engine consisting of basically 2 1.3 litre rotaries... potential 300kW+ 2.6l engine anyone?

1995 EF Futura - Crow stage 2 cam & adjustable gear, K&N cold air intake, AU XR intake snorkel, Advance stainless steel extractors, hi-flow cat converter, 2.5" pipe, 17" ROH RT shadow chrome mags, Pedders sports ryder suspension, DBA gold cross drilled/slotted rotors, lowered 1.5", camber kit, engine + starter immobiliser and microwave sensor security system.

Teh funnay is now linked here!

26B quad rotor? Like the 787B Le means winning racer that dominated 1995 and was banned after that. In a street car? Hmmm, I'd like to see that.

Lowriding, I said " Fords subsiduary Mazda" which means, Mazda is a subsiduary of Ford. Ford owns 25% of Mazda. Ford was going to cancel the Rotary Engine project, but put $$$ into the development. As for capacity, it is on the "swept volume" ie what is produced as it goes around the epitrochoidal crankshaft. Wankel engineering is fascinating. Felix Wankel designed the engine and spent years developing it. But it was Mazda who perfected the design. I owned a Suzuki RE5, motorbike for some time, and it was amazingly smooth and quick off the mark.
