Maserati Selects Shell Lubricants as Sole Motor Oil Technology Provider
Shell Helix Ultra with Shell PurePlus Technology has been officially named as the exclusive motor oil for Italian luxury sports car manufacturer, Maserati, reconfirming Shell Lubricants as the car manufacturer’s preferred motor oil supplier.
Used as factory fill as well as service fill, Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology motor oil will be available at Maserati’s global network of more than 220 dealers across Europe and Asia. In North America, where there are almost 100 dealers, the deal includes use of Pennzoil Platinum with PurePlus Technology.
Since the end of January 2014, all new Maserati Ghibli saloon 3.0 V6 diesel models are filled with Shell Helix Ultra Professional AM-L 5W30. The product will be the only Maserati-endorsed motor oil in the marketplace, specified in the owner’s manual, and recommended by all Maserati dealers.
Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology is designed to meet the needs of the world’s latest engines, such as those developed by Maserati for its high-performance cars, the technology formulated to optimise cleansing and protection against engine build-up deposits.
“Drivers who choose Maserati demand excellence from their vehicle” said Andrew Hepher, GM Global Marketing, Shell Lubricants. “Maserati creates sophisticated engine technology and relies on a high quality engine oil to keep it working smoothly. Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology is designed to clean and protect the engine, to help keep it closer to factory clean for longer. This product is used from the first fill, as every new Maserati rolls off the production line; and recommended by Maserati for all services. For drivers, this means they can enjoy the very best performance from their vehicle.”
The collaboration between Shell Lubricants and Maserati was first established in 2007 and offers benefits to owners of Maserati vehicles, as well as Maserati’s distributors and dealers.
Cara Tredget, Auto OEM Technology Manager at Shell, commented: “We have been working with Maserati for many years now and know the company shares our focus on delivering the very best products to discerning drivers worldwide.
"With Shell PurePlus Technology, we have been able to design our most advanced motor oil ever, which delivers even higher levels of cleansing and protection to help keep engines in peak operating condition.
"Leading vehicle manufacturers such as Maserati know that their customers place huge emphasis on performance, and this is why the correct choice of motor oil is so important.”
