Ferrari Earns Two 2013 International Engine of the Year Awards

2013 sees Ferrari taking the International Engine of the Year Award for the third time in a row. The carmaker’s naturally-aspirated 6,262 V12, in its 740 hp application that serves the F12 Berlinetta, has received two accolades.

The V12 powerplant won the awards for the Best Performance Engine and Above 4-liter Engine categories, which went to the 458's 4.5-liter V8 in the 2011 and 2012 editions of the competition.

“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,” said Jean Jacques His, head of Ferrari’s powertrain department.

Somebody over in Sant’Agata Bolognese must be really upset right now. After all, the V12 in the Aventador is Lamborghini’s first all-new V12 since the company introduced its original V12 in the 60s’.
