Mobil 1 Selected as Factory and Service Fill Motor Oil for New Nissan GT-R Multi-Performance Supercar


ExxonMobil today announced that Mobil 1 has been selected as the factory fill motor oil for the Nissan GT-R, the newly launched high performance vehicle featuring an all-new 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 "VR38" engine.

Nissan selected synthetic engine oil as the initial fill for the GT-R because of its friction reducing capabilities and high-temperature performance. Mobil 1, the world's leading synthetic motor oil, was selected as the Nissan GT-R's factory fill. Mobil 1 is also recommended for follow-on service fills.

The Nissan GT-R's new engine produces 480PS (353kW) at 6400rpm and maximum torque of 60kgm (588Nm) from 3200 to 5200rpm. Its new "VR38" engine features plasma-sprayed bores and a special twin-turbo exhaust manifold system. A secondary air management system enables the newly designed power plant to provide approximately 40kg/m of torque during ordinary low-rev driving, which gives an optimum air-fuel ratio for around-town efficiency and helps the Nissan GT-R meet ultra-low emission vehicle (U-LEV) standards in Japan.

Mobil 1 is recommended for high-performance turbo-charged, supercharged gasoline and multi-valve fuel injected engines found in high-performance vehicles, passenger cars, SUVs, light vans and trucks around the world.

Mobil 1 0W-40 provides a variety of performance benefits for the Nissan GT-R and its "VR38" engine, including outstanding engine wear protection, excellent oil flow characteristics and fuel economy. Mobil 1, with its patented SuperSyn technology, is uniquely designed to provide unsurpassed levels of performance, cleaning power and engine protection.

"The Nissan GT-R team successfully delivered a supercar that exemplifies high performance driving under virtually any condition," said Lawrence Kearns, Global Automotive Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties. "We are happy to be a part of such an exciting chapter in automotive history, and pleased that Nissan has recognized Mobil 1 as the oil of choice to meet the high-temperature and friction demands of their new turbo engine."

Mobil 1 technology has been selected as factory-fill for many other high performance engines, and is chosen by more OEMs than any other oil brand in the world.
