Ferrari's 3.9-Litre V8 biturbo is Named Engine Of The Year

It was a victory for the Italians, as Ferrari's 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 engine which produces 661 horsepower and 561 lb·ft of torque that powers the Ferrari's 488 GTB and 488 spider was named the 2016 International Engine of the Year.

A judging panel of 63 from 30 different countries voted on the award which was announced on Wednesday evening at the Engine Expo in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Ferrari V8 topped the poll with 331 points with BMW's 1.5-litre three-cylinder electric-petrol hybrid unit second with 278 points and Porsche's 3-litre six-cylinder turbo (911 Carrera) third on 267 points. Rounding out the list were PSA Peugeot Citroen's 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo, Ford's 998cc three-cylinder turbo, Mercedes-AMG 2-litre turbo, Ferrari 6.3-litre V12 and Audi's 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo.

This engine also won the performance engine and new engine categories, as well as the 3-litre to 4-litre displacement category while the drivetrain in Tesla's Model X and Model S vehicles was voted best Green Engine.

According to Graham Johnson, co-chairman of the awards panel: "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 remembered as one of the all-time greats."

This is the 18th time the Italian Automaker is claiming this title.
