McLaren Automotive and Gulf Oil International renew partnership for 2023

  • Gulf to remain Official Lubricant and Fuel Partner to McLaren Automotive
  • Gulf Formula Elite will continue to be the first fill lubricant

Luxury supercar company McLaren Automotive has announced the renewal of its partnership with Gulf Oil International as its Official Lubricant and Fuel Partner for 2023.

As McLaren’s official engine oil supplier, and following rigorous powertrain testing in 2021, the renewal of the relationship means Gulf Formula Elite will remain first fill lubricant in all McLaren Automotive supercars and hypercars leaving the McLaren Production Centre.

The creation of Gulf Formula Elite was the result of both technology teams working collaboratively, developing and testing a lubricant which would offer the ultimate protection for McLaren’s high performance V8 and V6 engines.

Gulf Formula Elite is an advanced full synthetic engine oil that provides the ultimate protection, even in the most extreme conditions, to deliver sustained peak performance for McLaren Automotive cars.

Gulf Formula Elite uses Thermoshield Technology to meet McLaren’s exacting performance and efficiency demands by forming a robust coating on all critical engine parts for enhanced wear defence.  Gulf Formula Elite maintains optimum temperature by helping to dissipate heat, actively prevents oil deterioration, and helps to provide greater deposit control.

“We are delighted to continue our relationship between McLaren Automotive and Gulf as our Official Lubricant and Fuel Partner. It is a partnership based on a shared commitment to performance through constant innovation.

“Gulf Formula Elite will continue to be McLaren Automotive’s exclusive fist fill lubricant for every McLaren supercar and hypercar leaving our McLaren Production Centre where every McLaren is hand-built.” 

George Biggs, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, McLaren Automotive

“We are thrilled to renew our partnership with McLaren Automotive. Both our companies share a passion for excellence, which ultimately led to the creation of our quality Gulf Formula Elite and its exclusive status as McLaren Automotive’s first fill lubricant.

“Our relationship thrives on the trust we have built with McLaren’s customers, who can be reassured that their supercar engines will be protected. We look forward to continuing this relationship together and building on everything we have achieved so far.” 

Mike Jones, CEO, Gulf Oil International

About McLaren Automotive:

McLaren Automotive is a creator of luxury, high-performance supercars.

Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.

Launched in 2010, the company is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.

The company’s product portfolio of GT, supercar, Motorsport and Ultimate models are retailed through over 100 retailers in over 40 markets around the world.

McLaren is a pioneer that continuously pushes the boundaries. In 1981, it introduced lightweight and strong carbon fibre chassis into Formula 1 with the McLaren MP4/1.

Then in 1993 it designed and built the McLaren F1 road car – the company has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis since. As part of the Ultimate Series, McLaren was the first to deliver a hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1™. In 2016, it announced a new hybrid hyper-GT and confirmed in 2018 that the next Ultimate car would be the Speedtail.

2019 saw McLaren launch the 600LT Spider, the new GT and the track-only McLaren Senna GTR. It also unveiled the 620R and McLaren Elva before launching the 765LT the following year.

Most recently, the company unveiled its all-new high-performance hybrid supercar, the McLaren Artura.

The Artura is the first McLaren to benefit from the McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA). The MCLA is designed, developed and manufactured at the McLaren Composites Technology Centre in the Sheffield region of England using world-first processes and will spearhead the brand’s electrified future.

McLaren Automotive also chooses to partner with like-minded, world-leading companies and organisations who push the boundaries in their respective fields. These include Ashurst, Bowers & Wilkins, Gulf, InfiniteWorld, Pirelli, Richard Mille, Plan International and Tumi.
