Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oil is recommended by GM for use in the 2014 Corvette C6R.S, Z06, ZR1, Grand Sport Coupe and the Corvette C7 Stingray with the Z51 Performance Package. The Z06 model benefits from the technology developed in the C6.R race car, which are raced in the Corvette teams in the American Le Mans circuit.
Mobil 1 synthetics were GM's first choice when the manufacturer began developing the racing Corvette in 1996 under the stewardship of Doug Fehan. Fehan, a former American racer turned program manager, has established himself as one of the most respected team principals in sports car racing. World Sports Car and Trans-Am titles were the forerunners to his current unrivalled winning streak with Corvette Racing. During the subsequent decade of development, the team has continued to use Mobil 1 oils. Extensive testing and post-race analysis reveal minimal component wear, improved engine reliability and performance.
