ExxonMobil today announced it will become the official fuel and lubricant partner of the Aston Martin Valkyrie.
This new partnership allows all 150 Valkyrie production cars to leave the factory filled with ExxonMobil products including Mobil 1™ 0w-40 engine oil and Esso Synergy™ fuel.
Both products are aimed to offer maximum power, performance and protection to the Valkyrie’s 6.5L naturally-aspirated V12 power unit. This hybrid hypercar is the product of a collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies.
It is designed to be the fastest street-legal car in the world and was developed using Formula OneTM technologies to deliver its stunning looks and performance. In addition, ExxonMobil will supply Mobil 1 engine oil and Esso Synergy fuel to the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, a track version of the Valkyrie production car, of which only 25 units will be built.
“The Aston Martin Valkyrie, designed to be the fastest and most extreme road car in the world, provides the perfect technical platform to demonstrate the capabilities of our advanced Mobil 1 engine oil and Esso Synergy fuels,” said Kai Decker, Global Sponsorship Manager, ExxonMobil.
“The Valkyrie’s 6.5-litre V12 power unit will demand use of only the best products which ExxonMobil is able to supply. Our high-performance lubricants and fuels for the road are developed by using Formula One technology from our partnership with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. It is fitting that the world’s fastest and most extreme cars require Mobil 1 engine oil and Synergy fuel.”
This new partnership for ExxonMobil complements its existing technology partnership with Aston Martin and enhances the strong technical relationship with the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Formula One Team, for which ExxonMobil provides engineering support to develop next-generation fuels and lubricants.
“We are delighted to have ExxonMobil on-board as an official technology partner of the Aston Martin Valkyrie, our most exciting and high-performance project to date,” said Dr. Andy Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aston Martin.
“Not only is ExxonMobil a brand that shares our passion for performance and innovation, but it also has the technical capabilities to provide the high performance fuels and lubricants required to help power Valkyrie.
This is demonstrated by the innovative work they do in partnership with the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Formula One Team, so we know ExxonMobil can deliver the performance we need for this flagship project. We intend to provide our customers with the ultimate experience in performance driving and ExxonMobil will help us achieve this ambition.”
