Classic car engine oil



ELF INTRODUCES HTX CLASSIC CARS, A NEW RANGE OF LUBRICANTS DESIGNED FOR CLASSIC CARS IN COLLECTABLE CANS

ELF introduces a new range of engine oils for classic cars with HTX Collection, HTX Prestige and HTX Chrono. Unlike any other oil, the ELF HTX range meets the needs of demanding classic car owners with a fresh new design thanks to a collectable can by renowned artists.

With over 45 years of experience, ELF lubricants are identified with passion, performance and technology. With the new HTX range, ELF offers classic car lovers not only premium oil but also novelty cans devised from expertise to match engine requirements.

THE HTX CLASSIC CARS RANGE CONSISTS OF THREE PRODUCT FAMILIES

HTX Collection is designed for classic cars manufactured since 1950 such as the Citroën DS, the Citroën 2CV, the Dauphine or the Peugeot 403. The excellent viscosity balance permits low-wear starts even after longer immobilization periods, while preventing rust, corrosion and also wear during trips with high temperature.

HTX Prestige oil has been formulated for vintage cars built between 1900 and 1950, like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Bugatti or Citroën Traction classics, and any other vintage cars without oil filter or with cyclone separator. With optimized detergent level, the HTX Prestige SAE 40 oil helps avoid the build up carbon to be removed and therefore preventing leaks where the carbon became the seal itself. Also, the HTX Prestige 20W-50 offers a very high viscosity that minimizes oil losses while its mineral technology maintains a strong film between the cylinder walls and piston rings to reduce the wear and allow a good compression ratio. It’s also compatible with standard and classic car fuels, as well as synthetic and non-synthetic oils.

HTX Chrono is suitable for classic racing cars both old and young such the VW Golf GTI, the Peugeot 205 GTI, but also for prestigious sports cars like Ferraris, Porsches and other Lotus 80s for example. It is the ideal lubricant for tuned and high-power engines with turbocharger or compressor. The HTX Chrono 10W-60 grade allows the use of the engine’s full power without any risk of wear or mechanical degradation. Its fully synthetic technology is designed for demanding drivers that want to use their car on circuits.
