Ferrari is once again king under the hood. The results of the 2017 International Engine of the Year awards have finally been released, and the Italian supercar maker nabs top honors for the second year in a row with its 660hp 3.9-liter biturbo V8. It's the same one found inside the Ferrari 488 GTB and Spider.

The same Ferrari engine also managed to receive Best Performance Engine (a repeat of last year) and Best 3.0-liter to 4.0-liter Engine, too. In total, the mill has won seven Engine of the Year categories since it came out. So yeah, if these awards are anything to go by, then opting for turbo hasn't taken anything away from the Prancing Horse.

Best New Engine honors goes to the 559hp Honda 3.5-liter V6 electric-gasoline hybrid powering the Acura NSX, while Best Sub 1.0-liter Engine goes to the 123hp Ford 999cc three-cylinder turbo inside the Fiesta, Focus and EcoSport.
