Ferrari F12berlinetta Wins EVO Magazine's "Engine Of The Year"
MARANELLO, ITALY – Nov 12, 2012: The Ferrari F12berlinetta has today been honoured with another prestigious award – this time from EVO magazine which nominated the 6.3 litre V12 engine as their “Engine of the Year”. The team at EVO magazine were impressed by the F12berlinetta engine’s prodigious 740hp power output and relentless “any-gear-any-revs urge”, especially when this extreme level of performance has not compromised efficiency, with a range of innovative technological solutions which reduce CO2 emissions by 30%.
Harry Metcalfe, Editor in Chief of EVO magazine commented, “When details of the new Ferrari F12’s engine specification first reached EVO HQ, we were frankly astonished at the quoted power output. 730bhp from 6.3 litres sets a new benchmark for a normally-aspirated V12 road engine and, despite its prodigious power, our road-testers reported it was perfectly tractable in regular driving. A remarkable achievement.”
The EVO recognition follows the car’s Auto Bild Design Award, The Sunday Times Driving’s “Best Supercar and Luxury Car” award and, just yesterday, the Golden Steering Wheel award from Auto Bild and Bild Am Sonntag, the first time a Ferrari has ever taken this leading German industry prize.
