Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd has selected Shell as the exclusive manufacturer and supplier of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Genuine Engine Oil.
The new passenger vehicle engine oil has been developed and tested to meet Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ passenger vehicle engine specifications. It will also work with the company’s V12 engines.
Shell stated that its PurePlus Technology will help to protect the engine from “power-robbing deposits and sludge.” Shell PurePlus Technology is a patented gas-to-liquid (GTL) process that converts natural gas into clear base oil. Base oil is the main component of finished oils and plays a vital role in the quality of the finished passenger vehicle engine oil. The base oil is produced at the Pearl GTL plant in Qatar, a partnership between Shell and Qatar Petroleum. Its properties will enable the oil to reach peak operating efficiency sooner in challenging conditions with low oil consumption and long engine service life.
Richard Jory, Shell's Global Vice President for Lubricants Key Accounts, said: "We are delighted to have been chosen to develop and supply the new passenger vehicle engine oil for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd., using our most recent innovation - Shell PurePlus Technology."
