WHY DOES AN OIL NEED TO BE STRONG?
Today’s technology has allowed car manufacturers to produce smaller, yet more powerful and efficient engines. The aim is to deliver increased fuel economy, reduced emissions and high performance. Downsizing, turbocharging and advanced engine designs have now almost doubled engine pressures causing more stress on the oil. The oil is now operating under higher temperatures and stress, in some areas withstanding pressures in excess of 10,000kg per square centimetre
Under such pressures, the only thing standing between metal surfaces is the oil. That's why an oil needs to be strong and stay strong. And that goes for every drive, every start, every valve rotation, every time you put your foot on the accelerator. You need to have the best engine oil.
WHY A SUPERCAR NEEDS A STRONG OIL
Generating phenomenal amounts of horsepower, nothing tests the engine and ultimately the oil like a supercar. Over the past 10 years, supercar engine pressures have almost doubled. This provides an extreme testing ground for Castrol EDGE at the pinnacle of automotive engineering and performance. Castrol EDGE has partnered with a selection of the world’s leading supercar manufacturers to test and constantly improve our oils; keeping ahead of the ever increasing demands of modern-day engines, both in supercars and everyday high performance vehicles. Watch our film to see why a supercar needs a strong oil. TESTED IN SUPERCARS, ENGINEERED FOR YOU.
