Shell’s relationship with Enzo Ferrari dates back to the 1930s. The very first Ferrari road car to drive out of the factory gates in Maranello, Italy, in 1947 used Shell lubricant. This is still the case today – the engine of every Ferrari leaving the production line in Maranello, from the 458 Italia to Ferrari’s latest innovations, is filled with Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology.
Knowing that a product is good enough for a supercar like a Ferrari gives confidence to drivers of all cars that this is motor oil they can trust.
Formula One™ is also Shell Helix Ultra’s high-speed, high-pressure testing ground. Shell scientists go to great lengths to optimise the racing motor oils they supply Scuderia Ferrari to provide maximum power and performance on the track*
“Our engines are among the most technologically advanced in the world. And they need the oil to match. This is why we choose Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology.” – Scuderia Ferrari
“Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology is the only motor oil I trust.” – Kimi Räikkönen, Scuderia Ferrari Driver
*While Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology motor oils for the racetrack and the road share the same technology platform, the racing formulation is customised to meet the extreme racing conditions.
