Motul, partner to Rétromobile 2023

Motul, the specialist in high-performance lubricants and an essential figure in the collector vehicle market, has announced the continuation of its partnership with Rétromobile, the major international gathering for collector cars. At the 47th edition of the show, the French brand will lay on an unprecedented feature in honour of the centenary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, from 1 to 5 February 2023 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.

Motul and vintage vehicle enthusiasts: sharing the same passion

Following several partnerships with great classic events such as Goodwood Revival, Le Tour auto, Le Mans Classic and many others, Motul's presence at Rétromobile is proof of the brand's strategy and ambition to support the most demanding and iconic events dedicated to vintage vehicles. In its support for the classic vehicle sector, Motul does much more than simply market its range of tried and tested products specially dedicated to heritage vehicles. The brand is also dedicated to the promotion and conservation of motorised wheeled heritage. Its historical collaborations with the French Federation of Vintage Vehicles (FFVE) and the Fondation du Patrimoine have brought Motul to sponsor the financing of vintage vehicle restoration projects. Not to mention the Motul Corazón Foundation, which contributes in particular to supporting the professional classic car sector, training, and the conservation of know-how. 

Motul, a faithful and long-standing partner to the 24 Hours of Le Mans

As a partner of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) since 1954 and a partner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans since 2016, Motul has continued to build upon its presence at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, year after year. For the 90th edition of the race held in 2022, the partnership between Motul and the world's greatest motorsport event took on a more official status, with the ACO cementing Motul's place in its history by renaming the famous Virage du Raccordement corner "Virage du Raccordement Motul". Symbolising several decades of involvement in Le Mans, it also places Motul as an actor in the future of the race. It was therefore only natural for the engine lubricant brand to dedicate its presence at Rétromobile to the centenary of this Le Mans adventure.

On its 150 sqm stand, Motul will offer a real step back in time by reproducing the Le Mans garage of 1954. A replica of the pit lane and grandstand will also plunge visitors into the very heart of the 24 Hours racetrack. As for special features, visitors will be in for a few surprises: Motul will be exhibiting the Motul Vagabond, an old Renault AHS3 truck from 1945. And as it does every year, Motul will be unveiling the winner of the Prix National Auto (National Car Prize), organised in partnership with the Fondation du Patrimoine.

On 31 January starting at 7.30pm, for the preview evening, Motul will invite classic car enthusiasts, VIP guests, partners, club representatives and journalists to its stand for an enjoyable moment with the Motul teams.
