Motul virtually invented fully-synthetic oil in 1971. After their first semi-synthetic oil had powered racers to 300 victories in international competition, Motul released 300V, the first fully-synthetic oil to be sold worldwide.
300V is based on pure ester base stocks and blended with innovative additive packages developed during more than a century and a half of R&D and real-world use in the most demanding applications. The result is a 100% synthetic oil that allows maximum power output without sacrificing reliability or long-term wear characteristics. Motul 300V Racing Oils are suitable for all race-prepared engines (gasoline or diesel, fuel injected or carbureted, turbo or naturally-aspirated) operating over a wide range of RPM and temperatures.

The wide viscosity ranges for each grade of Motul 300V help to ensure proper flow on start-up while still providing adequate protection as temperatures and RPMs climb.
