Ferrari was recently awarded at the International Engine of the Year Awards for Best Performance Engine for its 4.5-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine for the second year running. It beat several new contenders with forced induction engines for the title. Ferrari’s thoroughbred dry-sump, flat-crank, 90-degree V8 also took the accolade in the Above 4-litre category for the second time.

The awards jury consists of a panel of motoring journalists from 35 countries. The shortlisted engines are assessed according to the jury’s subjective driving impressions and technical knowledge, taking into account fuel economy, smoothness, performance, sound, and drivability.

Upon receiving the awards, Jean Jacques His, head of Ferrari’s powertrain department, commented, “Winning both these important titles again in the face of such strong rivals is naturally a real honour, but most importantly it is testament to the fact that Ferrari’s expertise in engine design is unmatched, not just in terms of technical excellence, but in terms of real-world driving pleasure.”

The Ferrari 458 Italia continues to attract critical acclaim worldwide, with nearly 40 international awards received in its short career. The engine that helped the 458 Italia establish itself as the benchmark in the sports car category is now also fitted to the 458 Spider, which has already been the object of critical acclaim, taking five major international awards immediately after launch.
