  • event comments: On June 2nd, Motor Authority published the results of the 2016 International Engine of the Year results and Ferrari 488 GTB's Engine Won Hands Down

 

The results for the 2016 International Engine of the Year awards are in, and the overall winner has gone to a perennial favorite of the awards: Ferrari.

This year it was the twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 fitted to the 488 GTB that pleased the judges the most.

Incredibly, this is the first time in a decade that an engine with more than six cylinders has claimed the top award.

The judges were particularly pleased with the power delivery of the engine as well as its technology, such as the special seals of the turbochargers to help prevent lag; the ion-sensing system to control ignition timing and adaptively predict misfires; and the multispark function that enables the spark advance to be maximized at all revs.
