Oil and lubricants company Motul launches Motul 8100 Power for the North American market. 8100 Power was developed specifically for performance street vehicles that do not require a dedicated track motor oil like Motul 300V.
The 100% synthetic, ESTER-based engine oil replaces and expands upon the renowned Motul Sport line and is now available in four viscosities for use in naturally aspirated and forced-induction gasoline and diesel engines.
“Engineered with modern performance engines in mind, 8100 Power provides the ideal balance between performance and protection,” said Motul USA Marketing Manager Nolan Browning. “With 8100 Power, we are taking what we’ve learned from our decades as a leader in motorsport lubrication technology and applying it to high-performance and tuned street cars.
“It’s the perfect addition to our line of motor oils for everything from general service to extreme track use.”
The new line of 8100 Power products is specially formulated to ensure performance and reliability for turbocharged or naturally aspirated light-duty diesel or gasoline engines across a broad range of temperatures and engine RPMs.
Motul 8100 Power is engineered to protect against the risk of low-speed pre-ignition in small-displacement turbocharged direct-injection engines. It delivers outstanding oil film resistance at elevated temperatures for peak engine power, torque, and anti-wear protection, thanks to a unique combination of ester base oils and friction modifiers, custom blended to provide what regular service motor oils cannot.
Motul 8100 Power also maintains compatibility with manufacturer warranties with vehicles requiring API SP grade lubricants as well as full compatibility with bioethanol (E85 and E100), LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), CNG (compressed natural gas) and diesel fuels.
Motul 8100 Power is available in 0W-20, 5W-30, 5W-40 and 5W-50 viscosities in one-liter and five-liter containers. The high-performance lubricant has already been recommended and extensively tested for high-performance vehicles at manufacturer-recommended drain intervals.
For 170 years, Motul has remained a proven innovator and global leader in high-performance lubricants. Motul 8100 Power upholds the storied brand’s commitment to performance while expanding the scope to new and varied high-performance street vehicles.
