Sogefi, the automotive components company of the CIR Group, is the original equipment supplier of the oil filter module mounted on the Ferrari 720-cv, 3.9- litre V8 engine.
During the 21st edition of the International Engine & Powertrain of the Year award, Ferrari’s V8 won the overall title for the fourth consecutive year, a feat never achieved by any other engine. The Ferrari engine also took performance engine of the year and two other awards.
Together with its engineers, year after year, Sogefi confirms its total commitment towards the research and development of advanced and successful filtration technologies.
To guarantee better results in terms of efficiency, pressure-drop in case of high flow rates, and filter element’s durability and mechanical rigidity under all the extreme conditions to which these sports engines are subjected, Sogefi’s oil filter module uses a protective net in its by-pass valve. A technological solution designed to provide class- leading performance and durability.
Sogefi constantly improves its filters through technological developments on all product families – oil, fuel, engine air and cabin – optimizing performance in terms of life cycle, effectiveness, dimensions, weight and environmental sustainability.
Its products are fitted as original equipment on luxury and sports car engines as well as on all the other vehicles segments, always maintaining the same high quality and confirming Sogefi as one of the leading filter suppliers in Europe.
The International Engine + Powertrain of the Year awards are presented by the Engine Technology International magazine, published by UKi Media & Events. They involve the voluntary participation of 70 motoring journalists from 31 countries. In order to ensure a fairer judgement of hybrid powertrains, as from this year the competing categories have been changed from capacity- to power-based categories.
The awards ceremony took place at Engine Expo 2019 at the Stuttgart Trade Fair in Germany, on 22 May.
