In this thread we post BMW motors and engine bays that make us weak at the knees, a short description is nice, but not required. I'll start:

BMW 3.0 CSL M49 race motor: upright mount, slide throttles, twin chain driven cams, and exhaust the size of a sewer.

E21 320i Group 5 M12/7: reversed head, The gold pieces on the motor (cam tray, lower timing cover and slide throttle case) are all magnesium - likely that the oil pan is well although they did construct these of aluminum as well. Valve covers were also magnesium......all in the name of saving a few ounces.

On the performance side of things, McLaren contracted BMW to hand build the S70/2 engine, a 6.1 litre four cam 48 valve V-12 that provided 627 horsepower to the wheels and 479 pound feet of torque through a six speed racing gearbox. This allowed the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 3.1 seconds and achieve a top speed of 231 mph.

^^ wow, the Warrior 16v head on the 2ltr pinto block, the young apprentice's equivalent of the Cosworth, takes me back to my (mis-spent) youth!

The ultimate BMW engine for me...

S16 motor, with CF air box, looks sexy and sounds horny. One day I will have one, oh yes, one day!
