We all know Ferrari builds one of the most extraordinary engines of current times, but now we also have the official honour to confirm this. The Maranello company received a record number of awards at the International Engine of the Year Award ceremony, held at the Engine Expo 2016 in Stuttgart.

No less than 63 jurors in more than 30 countries voted in Ferrari favour. This way, Ferrari took the most important prize, the overall International Engine of the Year Award, with the twin-turbo V8 that powers the 488 GTB, 488 Spider and, with a slightly different displacement, the California T. In fact, this engine also won the Performance Engine and New Engine categories, as well as the 3-litre to 4-litre displacement category. 

Ferrari’s naturally-aspirated 6.3-litre V12 engine that powers the F12berlinetta and F12tdf also received the Above 4-litre award.

Ferrari’s return to twin-turbo technology for the V8 range has set a new benchmark for turbo-charged engines. Zero turbo lag and a progressive delivery of torque throughout the rev range.

According to Graham Johnson, co-chairman, International Engine of the Year Awards, the unit “it’s a giant leap forward for turbocharged engines in terms of efficiency, performance and flexibility. It truly is the best engine in production today and will forever be remembered as one of the all-time greats.”
