Maranello, 01 June 2016
Ferrari has been honoured to receive a record number of awards at the International Engine of the Year Award ceremony, held at the Engine Expo 2016 in Stuttgart yesterday morning.
Ferrari took the most important of them all, 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.
A concentration of uncompromising engineering solutions, Ferrari’s return to twin turbo technology for the V8 range has set a new benchmark for turbo-charged engines.
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.
