FERRARI V8 wins Engine of the Year for 2nd Year

A panel of 58 motoring journalists from 31 countries crowned the Ferrari 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 – codenamed the F154CB – the overall winner for the second straight year.

Delivering 493kW of power at 8,000rpm and 760Nm torque at 3,000rpm in seventh gear, and a throttle response time of just 0.8 seconds at 2,000rpm in third gear made the Ferrari engine a clear winner for this year’s judging panel.

For the second year running, the 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that powers the 488 GTB, 488 Spider and with a slightly smaller displacement the California T and GTC4Lusso T, has taken the outright ‘International Engine of the Year Award’ along with the ‘Performance Engine’ class and the ‘3-litre to 4-litre displacement’ category.

The winning twin-turbo V8 Ferrari powers the 488GTB, 488 Spider and with a slightly smaller displacement the California T and GTC4Lusso T. The engine is the fifth to win the top award on consecutive occasions (BMW 5-litre V10 2005-06, BMW 3-litre Twin Turbo 2007-08, Volkswagen 1.4-litre TSI Twincharger 2009-10, Ford 990cc three-cylinder turbo 2011-12).

This year also saw Ferrari’s naturally-aspirated 6.3-litre V12 engine, that powers the F12berlinetta and F12tdf, receive the ‘Above 4-litre award’ for the second year consecutively, and for the third time after the distinction awarded in 2013.
