The Partnership between Ferrari and Pennzoil
The relationship between Shell and Enzo Ferrari began in 1929, and the first Ferrari road car to leave the factory in 1947 used Shell lubricant and fuel. The legacy continues as the engine of every Ferrari GT road car leaving the production line in Maranello, Italy – from the 488GTB to the latest innovations from Ferrari – is filled with Pennzoil® PurePlus® Technology.
The Pennzoil® PurePlus® Technology process converts natural gas into a clear base oil with fewer of the impurities found in crude oil. The pure, clear base oil enables Pennzoil to develop superior motor oils.
Pennzoil Platinum is the only motor oil used, trusted, and recommended by Scuderia Ferrari1.
Additionally, Pennzoil works closely with Scuderia Ferrari in developing advanced motor oils to meet the grueling demands of Formula 1 (F1) engines on the circuits. Driven by innovation, the relationship between Pennzoil and Scuderia Ferrari is one of the industry’s longest and most successful partnerships in history.
