If a Ferrari twelve-cylinder is bad, then all engines are bad.

The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T.

Honda NSX's 3.5-litre V6 hybrid powertrain won the New Engine of the Year award.

'This blend of heart-thumping performance on both road and track, with a glorious V8 Maranello rumble and an ultra-sophisticated design that's loaded with advanced technologies, makes the Ferrari V8 unbeatable for another year, ' finished Dean Slavnich, co-chairman of the awards. This breaks the marque's 11-year absence from the awards. This means that the compact and powerful three-cylinder petrol engine remains undefeated in its category since launch in 2012. Designed specifically for 100 per cent battery electric vehicles, the new Electric Powertrain award saw a field featuring Volkswagen, Renault/Nissan, GM and BMW among others. Tesla's P1000 all-electric system also took the Green Engine title and was noted for its ability to mix a 500km driving range and a sub-3.0sec 0-100kph acceleration. The top finishers in the pecking order were Tesla, BMW i3 and Chevrolet Bolt. "And one is the quickest auto ever produced - quite a bonus". The 3902cc twin-turbo V8 has buyers, journalists and judges totally smitten and as a result it was no surprise that the engine bagged the 2017 International Engine of the Year award. As well as dominating the Award's Above 4-litre and Performance Engine categories in the past six years, Ferrari has now taken a record number of wins for any high-performance sports vehicle manufacturer.

In the 2.0-litre to 2.5-litre category, Audi's 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo powering the RS 3 and TT RS remained dominant. The F12tdf's 6.3-litre V12 has taken its second consecutive Above 4-litre title.
