Ferrari triumphed at the 21stedition of the International Engine & Powertrain of the Year, taking the overall title with its 720-cv, 3.9-liter V8 for the fourth straight year – a feat never achieved by any other engine in the history of the awards.

The 390-cc V8 engine that powers the 488 GTB, 488 Spider, 488 Pista, and 488 Pista Spider took the overall honors and also the Performance Engine award. With this year’s change from capacity categories to power output categories, to ensure a fairer judging of hybrid powertrains, Ferrari’s V8 took a further two categories. The same engine was voted the best power unit over 650ps, while the 3855-cc version that powers the Portofino (with 600 cv) and GTC4Lusso T (with 610 cv) was awarded in the 550 to 650ps category.

As a result, this year’s ceremony in Stuttgart, Germany saw Ferrari’s tally of International Engine & Powertrain of the Year awards rise to an impressive 31.
