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.

Three product families

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.

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.

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.

HTX GENERATION 15W-40 engine oil is the solution for maximum engine protection in modern classic cars, or « young-timers », especially those made between 1980 and 1999. Its perfectly balanced viscosity ensures good starting, even after long periods standing idle, and also protects against wear in hot weather. HTX GENERATION 15W-40 is particularly suited to the needs of modern classics type “Young Timers”, as it uses a blend of special additives formulated for the engines of this generation of vehicles.
