Historically, Motul has regularly stood out from its competitors by its high-tech solutions: as early as 1971, it was the first lubricant producer to sell 100% synthetic oil on the automotive market.
In 1966, Century 2100 appeared on the market. It was the first semi-synthetic car lubricant, a product that withstands constraints and mechanical loads ten-times higher than usual lubricants. In 1971, Motul innovated again with Century 300V, the first 100% synthetic car oil.
Today, Motul is present in more than 80 countries and designs, elaborates and distributes lubricants with higher technical value added. As a pioneer in many synthetic and semi-synthetic products, Motul has always favored innovation, research and development. The company is also a leader in the motorcycle lubricants market in France. In the motorsports field, many manufacturers trust Motul for its technological developments in car/bike racing. Motul has thus developed close relationships with manufacturers such as Nissan, Yamaha, Subaru, Toyota, Honda and Suzuki.
