Wiesbaden, Germany, June 16, 2016… Leading powertrain technologies from Federal-Mogul Powertrain, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML), are featured on all of the 2016 International Engine of the Year Award-winners, presented by Engine Technology International Magazine.

Federal-Mogul Powertrain’s broad array of engine technologies are found on the winners of all 12 award categories, which each use one or more of the company’s pistons, rings, liners, bearings, bushings, valve seats and valve guides, sealing and gaskets, valvetrain products and ignition and system protection products. The engines power vehicles from Ford, PSA Peugeot Citroen, BMW, Mercedes-AMG, Audi, Porsche and Tesla.

The 2016 International Engine of the Year honour was awarded to the Ferrari 3.9-litre biturbo V8, which features Federal-Mogul Powertrain’s cylinder head gaskets and engine valve cotters.

The panel of judges for the 2016 International Engine of the Year Awards comprises 62 automotive journalists from 31 countries, who together rewarded engine designs that blend high-end performance with advanced technologies designed to reduce emissions and substantially improve fuel economy. They also favoured those engines where weight reduction had been a significant development consideration.
