As part of last weekend’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, Motul designed a retro-inspired car livery. 

It celebrates the 50th anniversary of the brand’s flagship 300V oil for race cars, and appears on the limited-edition Acura NSX Type S

Launched in 1971, the 300V formula became the world’s first fully synthetic lubricant to be used in four-stroke engines.

Inspiration for the livery on the NSX Type S comes from decades of Motul-sponsored racing cars. The red and white stripes are complemented by a set of gold HRE Vintage FMR 527M two-piece wheels, adding an extra motorsport connection.

Acura will only produce 300 examples of the 600 horsepower Type S for North America. This makes it an even more suitable choice to celebrate 300V oil. 

“300V is Motul’s most advanced racing oil,” said Motul USA brand manager, Nolan Browning. “We worked hard to make new 300V even better, using technical data from Motul-sponsored racing teams to develop a product worthy of the historic 300V name.

He added: “We couldn’t be more excited to return to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach as an official sponsor for the U.S. preview of new 300V on track.”

Founded in France in 1853, Motul officially entered the U.S. market in 1989. Today it supplies oil to teams competing in sports car racing, endurance championships and the Le Mans 24 Hour race.

This year’s Grand Prix of Long Beach marked the season finale of the 2021 IndyCar Championship.

Other motorsport action in California over the weekend included the IMSA SportsCar Grand Prix of Long Beach, Formula D Super Drift Challenge and the Historic Formula Atlantic Challenge.
