The 300V is Motul’s top-of-the-line, fully-synthetic racing oil that has been developed with technical expertise and racetrack experience. It is the brand’s most popular product and the most trusted by racing teams all over the world.
300V is cutting-edge stuff! While it was designed to protect and enhance the performance of high-end cars, you certainly can use it in every day application.
Mechanics at the Dakar Rally as well as the Le Mans endurance race use 300V in the competition cars they service. It is the exact same stuff that you can buy off-the-shelf at your local Motul dealer or service provider.
Racing oils provide the same things that “street” (or regular) oils do: Increase power; protect the engine; and improve the reliability and longevity of components.
300V is a very specific product, and there are even different formulations for different racing applications; from sprint races to endurance rallies. The reformulated 300V line now has eight different product options. Six viscosities found previously in the line include 0W20, 5W30, 5W40, 10W40, 15W50 and 20W60. Two new additional viscosities include: 0W15 for pure performance; and 0W40 for power and optimized reliability.
So, besides those with actual racing cars, who should use 300V? Avid motor sports enthusiasts whose vehicles are in a high state of tune or which are used regularly at track days or sporting events such as time attacks, gymkhana or drag races.
