Ferrari’s new biturbo V8 takes home the 2016 International Engine of the Year image

Ford was crowned for the fifth consecutive year in the small engine category, while PSA, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-AMG also took home category wins.

But most importantly the Pracing Horse brand took home the big title – 2016 International Engine of the Year – for its 3.9-liter biturbo V8 engine. In addition, the Engine Technology International magazine patroned award had four separate commendations for the powerplant: New Engine, Performance Engine, 3.0-4.0-Liter Engine, and the main achievement. The new engine is being used inside a plethora of models – such as the 488 GTB, 488 Spider and the California T. “Ferrari’s return to twin-turbo technology for the V8 range has set a new benchmark for turbo-charged engines,” the automaker said in a statement. “Zero turbo lag and a progressive delivery of torque throughout the rev range maintain unprecedented levels of driver involvement.”

And Ferrari also won another category – the Above 4.0-Liter section – thanks to the spectacular 6.3-liter V12 from the F12tdf. The Sub 1-Liter went for the fifth consecutive year to Ford’s 1-liter EcoBoost housed inside many of its models. The 1.0-1.4-Liter category went to PSA Peugeot Citroen’s 1.2-liter turbocharged inline-three, and the 1.4-1.8-Liter award was snatched by the 1.5-liter turbocharged hybrid powertrain used in the BMW i8. Mercedes-AMG’s 2.0-liter turbo-four took home the 1.8-2.0-Liter award, and Audi’s 2.5-liter turbo inline-five scored the 2.0-2.5-Liter win. The 2.5-3.0-Liter award was granted to the new biturbo 3.0-liter flat-six in the Porsche 911 Carrera and the Best Green Engine was of course a Tesla win.
