The devilish roar that emerges from a Ferrari is something truly special–and they are not the only ones to feel that way. The brand has won two International Engine of the Year awards again this year, thanks to the all-new 6.3-liter V12 created for the F12 Berlinetta. The engine unleashes 740 Prancing Horses and the results must sting for Lamborghini, who no-doubt felt deserving with their splintering 700-horsepower Aventador. LaFerrari kicks out 950 happy horses, though it is a hybrid and was not part of the competition it appears.
Ferrari has taken the same categories in the International Engine of the Year competition since 2011.
The accolades were received in the Best Performance Engine and Above 4-liter Engine categories of the annual competition. The same categories were won with the Ferrari 458’s 4.5-liter V8 in both 2011 and 2012. The annual awards provide a peek at the auto industry’s latest engineering endeavors and high-performance feats.
The F12 Berlinetta’s engine is not only more aggressive, but also greener as it releases fewer emissions than its V8 predecessors.
Ferrari released the following statement about the awards: “Winning both these categories for the third year running is a fantastic result for everyone at Ferrari. It is testimony to the efforts of a relatively small group of engineers who constantly strive to achieve ambitious technical objectives. Three figures suffice to demonstrate the results of development: 120 HP more and 30 percent lower emissions than the previous V12 that equipped the 599 GTB Fiorano, along with a 30 percent increase in longitudinal acceleration.”
Ferrari’s team of engineers work tirelessly to stay ahead of competition and develop premier supercars. It will certainly be exciting to see what the brand has in store for next year’s competition in order to hold onto their titles.
