Ferrari takes best-engine crown again
The International Engine of the Year awards have been announced in Germany and once again it was Ferrari that walked away with the big award.
For the second consecutive year it was the Ferrari 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 that came out on top as overall winner.
The awards are judged by a panel of 58 motoring experts.
The 492kW/760Nm F154CB engine is just the fifth engine to win the award twice in consecutive years.
Dean Slavnich is the co-chairman of the awards, he tells us the Ferrari engine is a worthy two-time winner.
“It’s fitting that probably the best turbocharged engine ever developed has secured back-to-back outright International Engine of the Year Award titles.
“It’s blend of heart-thumping performance with a glorious rumble and ultra-sophisticated design, makes the Ferrari V8 unbeatable for another year.”
