Motul returned to the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed in conjunction with Caterham, whose stand the global oil company shared. 


Motul supplies the UK sports car constructor as an OE partner with lubricants and other related fluids, as well as being the name sponsor of the MOTUL Caterham 310R Championship. At the Festival of Speed, Caterham showcased both of its fully electric concept vehicles, Project V and EV Seven, as each made their public debut in what is Caterham’s 50th anniversary, and Motul’s 170 birthday year.

EV Seven is the brand’s technology development concept that trials cutting-edge battery electric technology in a modified Seven 485 chassis. EV Seven features a bespoke version of Swindon Powertrain’s E Axle, combined with an immersion-cooled battery pack. Immersion battery cooling uses a dielectric fluid, supplied by Motul. The fluid is in direct contact with the cells enabling better thermal management during charge and discharge cycles. This technology is at the forefront for battery electric vehicles and, until now, has typically been employed to cool supercomputers that generate enormous amounts of heat.

Project V is a fully-electric sports coupé concept that showcases an all-new design language created by Chief Designer Anthony Jannarelly. The show car has been built by world-renowned Italian engineering firm, Italdesign located in Turin.

Despite the Festival having to close on Saturday due to high wind thousands of vistors enjoyed the event on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
