This is a list of internal combustion engines manufactured by Ferrari.


Ferrari was rare among automobile manufacturers in attempting to build a straight-2 automobile engine. The racing prototype never made it to production.

  • Lampredi
    • 1955 2493 cc - Tipo 116 - prototype


During the 90s Ferrari developed an experimental straight-3 two-stroke engine.

  • Tipo F134
    • 1994 1347 cc - prototype


Lampredi designed a straight-4 engine for Formula Two use. Different versions of this engine were later used in Formula One and sports car racing.


Lampredi also modified his four into a straight-6 for racing use.


Ferrari's Dino project of the late 1956 gave birth to the company's well-known 65° V6 DOHC engines. This Vittorio Jano design formed the basis of the company's modern engines right up through the mid-2000s (decade). Another series of V6 engines was started in 1959 with a 60° V-angle and single overhead camshafts design.

The first V8 engine was derived from a Lancia project, used in D50 F1 racecar. The Dino V8 family lasted from the early 1970s through 2004 when it was replaced by a new Ferrari/Maserati design.


Ferrari used V10 engines only for F1 racecars, between 1996 and 2005.
