its not the same award, Wards is for US available cars only and picked by a US magazine. above is the international best engine award picked by multiple automotive journalists from all over the world.....
Just to be a little more clear as well, the award the 12C's M838T won was for the 3.0L to 4.0L class. It beat out the 4.0L V8 found in BMW's M3 and a couple of other contenders.
The actual "International Engine of the Year" award winner in this contest went to a tiny 1.0L 3-cyl Turbo Eco-Boost engine from Ford that makes 123HP. In this overall competition the 12C's engine placed 7th.
There was also a 'Performance Engine' category and the 6.3L V12 of the Ferrari F12 took top honors there with the 12C's engine placing third, just behind the 458 Italia's 4.5L V8 - edged out by just two points.
