Motul launches a new version of Motul 300V engine oil

Motul has launched a new and improved version of its flagship product; Motul 300V. Launched in 1971, Motul 300V was developed to help racing teams accomplish maximum performance and reliability out of their engines. Its name is a tribute to the 300 racing victories achieved by the time of its launch.

Fifty years after its first launch, Motul has unveiled the latest evolution of its benchmark lubricant; the new Motul 300V range with the following improvements:

  • Improved engine performance by reducing internal friction. This new formulation ensures proven power and torque gains across the whole powerband.
  • Better reliability by protecting an engine without compromising performance, by providing high shear stability for maximal oil film resistance, even in most extreme conditions.
  • Improved compatibility with modern engine requirements: 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 due to use of organic base stocks using non-fossil renewable materials limiting the environmental impact and allows Motul to lower its carbon footprint by 25% during the manufacturing process.

The range is split into 3 major series:

  • The Power series which features the lightest viscosity grades is available from 0W-8 to 5W-30. It brings power and can cope with engines subject to low oil fuel dilution.
  • The Competition series features mid viscosity grades, available from 0W-40 to 15W-50, brings compromise between power and reliability, and can cope with engines subject to mid oil fuel dilution.
  • Le Mans New generation of 300V Le Mans series offers engine reliability and is now available in 10W-60 and 20W-60 viscosities. It is perfect for extreme motorsport applications such as endurance racing and drifting.

Motul is the official lubricant partner of Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, which had the opportunity to test the new Motul 300V. Jim Glickenhaus, the Founder of Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus said, “The new Motul 300V makes a gigantic difference. In challenging racing conditions, the engine often gets stretched to its limits, therefore we need a reliable lubricant that will make the engine able to continue the race. The new Motul 300V is exactly that. We have full confidence in this lubricant.”
