The F136, commonly known as Ferrari-Maserati engine, is a family of 90° V8 petrol engines jointly developed by Ferrari and Maserati[citation needed] and produced by Ferrari; these engines displace between 4.2 L and 4.7 L, and produce between 390 PS (287 kW; 385 hp) and to 605 PS (445 kW; 597 hp). All engines are naturally aspirated, incorporate dual overhead camshafts, variable valve timing, and four valves per cylinder.

The architecture has been produced in various configurations for cars under those badges as well as for a single Alfa Romeo model. All three companies are owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, formerly Fiat S.p.A. under whom the engine sharing program was organized.

Starting with the 2013 Maserati Quattroporte GTS, and following with the 2014 Ferrari California T, the F136 is being replaced by the new twin turbocharged Ferrari F154 V8 engine.

Applications[edit]

Maserati and Alfa Romeo versions have crossplane crankshafts,[1] while Ferrari versions are flat plane.[2]
