The internal combustion engine is the heart of a car. Where size, speed and power were once at a premium, today smaller, lighter and more efficient are in demand. Environmentalists and consumers demand engines which are as efficient and economical as possible, and this is true for passenger cars, trucks and two-wheelers alike. New, very light materials which provide tensile strength, such as heat-treated aluminium alloys and vermicular graphite cast iron make it possible to produce lighter and stronger engine blocks and cylinder heads.
