Motul is delighted to announce that a new version of its flagship motor oil, the 300V, is now available in markets across the Asia Pacific region. The new and improved 300V is not only the ideal motor oil for racing drivers and motorsport enthusiasts, but also for every-day drivers looking for an ideal, hassle-free motoring experience.
The 300V, Motul’s flagship product since its introduction 50 years ago, features ESTERCore® technology – an innovation which involves the combination of carefully-chosen esters with an optimal selection of top quality synthetic base oils, while coupled with an innovative additives package. Improvements include:
- Improved performance: The new Motul 300V racing oil improves engine performance by reducing internal friction, and ensures proven power and torque gains across the whole power band;
- Better reliability: Motul 300V protects engines without compromising performance by providing high shear stability for maximal oil film resistance, even in most extreme conditions;
- Improved compatibility: Motul 300V now fulfils modern engine requirements; fully compatible with exhaust gas after-treatment systems such as particulate filters, compatible with biofuels (especially Ethanol) and protects against LSPI (on downsized engines).
- More sustainable: Motul 300V features Organic base stocks using non-fossil renewable materials limiting the environmental impact and allows Motul to lower its carbon footprint by 25% during manufacturing process.
Motul’s 300V also comes in a range of options to accommodate the requirements of different vehicles and motorists facing different driving conditions; in fact, extensive testing on the 300V was conducted in Asia to test various conditions of the 300V. The range includes:
