The A40 in the name indicates it: The oil is officially approved by Porsche for all vehicles that require an oil with the Porsche A40 standard – which is effectively every Porsche with a gasoline motor. It is a completely newly developed fully synthetic motor oil. The viscosity area 0W-40 is greater than in many conventional oils for cars. This offers greater performance reserves if the motor is under heavy strain. Geographical proximity helped in the cooperation with Porsche: LIQUI MOLY is located just one hour’s drive from the Porsche headquarters.
“This new oil is uncompromisingly designed for sports cars,” says Sebastian Zelger, Director of LIQUI MOLY USA. “With this oil we did not take normal cars into account at all, but developed a lubricant that is tailor-made for Porsche motors.”
With around 4,000 items, LIQUI MOLY offers a global, uniquely broad range of automotive chemicals: Motor oils and additives, greases and pastes, sprays and car care, glues and sealants. Founded in 1957, LIQUI MOLY develops and produces exclusively in Germany. There it is the undisputed market leader for additives and is repeatedly voted the best oil brand. The company led by Ernst Prost sells its products in more than 120 countries and generated 489m euros in sales in 2016.
