115 YEARS OF PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES

Ever since our early breakthroughs in the late 19th century, Castrol has always been driven by a restless spirit of innovation and a determination to push the boundaries of what is possible - with the constant goal of developing the best engine oils.

We celebrate and partner with those who do the same. That's why world-leading car manufacturers continue to choose Castrol. The thrill and excitement of creating and redefining what's possible drives everything we do.

That innovative, collaborative spirit has kept Castrol at the forefront of cutting-edge engine oil technology - now with the doubling in oil film strength with Castrol EDGE, our strongest ever oil.
