With only 500 hand-built units in the world, the ultra-exclusive Lexus LFA supercar is one of the finest high performance machines on the road today.
Featuring unique carbon fibre construction technology and powered by a 4.8L V10 engine that rockets the car from 0-100 kph in 3.5 seconds, the Lexus LFA was created with an overriding passion for extreme performance and attention to detail.
"The LFA is a thoroughbred supercar, a machine engineered to achieve a single goal - to deliver a supreme driving experience," said Chief Engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi. And when it came to choosing an engine oil for the Lexus LFA, the choice was clear.
Mobil 5W-50: The Factory Fill of Lexus LFA
Blending the right viscosity and ability to deliver high performance at extreme temperatures, Mobil 1 5W-50 was selected as a perfect match for the high-revving nature of the supercar's engine.
"We needed an engine oil that guarantees oil pressure that can overcome inertial force at a very high rev limit of 9,000 rpm while maintaining viscosity at high temperature," explains Chief Engineer Tanahashi. "That's why we chose Mobil 1 for Lexus LFA. Mobil 1 is a consistent quality engine oil that is available anywhere in the world. So we really did not find the need to look at other brands."
