The awards, recognised as the industry’s top accolade for the world’s best powertrain technology, have seen the international judging panel increase to 86 motoring journalists from 35 nations. In the face of stiff competition, the Ferrari V12 was lauded as a masterpiece of engineering, combining blistering performance with surprising efficiency.
