Double-win for Ferrari at the International Engine of the Year Award

With the prize giving at the International Engine of the Year Award concluded one might ask how the 458′s V8 engine, which won the last two years in a row, fared. Well, the answer is that a Ferrari engine, the V12 with 6.3 litres and 740 hp from the F12berlinetta, was necessary to dethrone the 8-cylinder sister engine, which came in second in the “Best Performance Engine” and “Over 4 litre” categories, leaving the fierce competition behind. Without the arrival of the new range of the Prancing Horse the V8 4.5-litre engine with its 570 hp would have made a hat-trick.
