Ferrari Wins 4th Straight International Engine & Powertrain of the Year Award

The 21st edition of the International Engine & Powertrain of the Year has seen Ferrari triumph again, taking the overall title with its 720-cv, 3.9-litre V8 for the fourth year running, a feat never achieved by any other engine in the history of the awards.

The 3902 cc V8 engine that powers the 488 GTB, 488 Spider, 488 Pista and 488 Pista Spider took the overall honours and also the Performance Engine award.

With this year’s change from capacity categories to power output categories, to ensure a fairer judging of hybrid powertrains, Ferrari’s V8 took a further two categories: the same engine was voted the best power unit over 650 PS, while the 3855 cc version that powers the Portofino (with 600 cv) and GTC4Lusso T (with 610 cv) was awarded the 550 to 650 PS category.

As a result, this year’s ceremony in Stuttgart, Germany saw Ferrari’s tally of International Engine & Powertrain of the Year awards rise to an impressive 31.
