Default Ferrari's 3.9L twin-turbo V8 - International Engine of the Year 2016!

Ferrari's 8-cylinder, 3902cc twin-turbocharged V8 engine - the heart of the 488 GTB which produces 660BHP of raw, pulsating power & 760Nm of screeching torque - has been awarded the prestigious International Engine of the Year 2016 award.

This particular twin-turbo V8 screamer also won in the "New Engine", "Performance Engine" and the "3.0-litre to 4.0-litre" categories as well.

This is the first time in 10 years that a car engine propelled by over six cylinders has won this very-prestigious esteem. BMW’s 5.0-litre V10 had won top honours back in 2006.

“At first glance it would seem the winning powertrain takes this downsizing trend and rips up the rulebook… The 488 heart is proof that performance cars – and all passenger cars – need not fear the downsizing trend,” said the awards committee.

“It was the powertrain’s sophisticated design – loaded with advanced technologies – that saw off a serious challenge from last year’s winner, BMW’s i8 PHEV creation, as well as Porsche’s new straight-six turbo in the 911, to take top honours,” Dean Slavnich, co-chairman of the International Engine of the Year Awards said.
