No other motor oil is dexosR-approved

Since 1993, more than 810,000 Corvettes and counting have come factory fill with Mobil 1™ advanced synthetic motor oil. Our latest formulation was originally called Mobil 1 ESP Formula 0W-40, but has now become the first-ever dexosR™-approved motor oil. With that new spec, a new name reflects the true spirit of our performance pedigree: Mobil 1 Supercar.

3 ways | Mobil 1 Supercar helps guarantee Corvette power and precision

  • Icon illustrating cold start protection

    Cold Start Protection

    Up to 70% of engine wear may occur during the first three seconds of startup, Mobil 1 Supercar is the only advanced synthetic motor oil specifically developed to help protect the heart of your Corvette in extreme temperatures.

  • Icon illustrating wear protection

    Wear Protection

    To help reduce oil consumption and provide maximum performance, Corvette engines include technologies like a patented PCV system, a variable-displacement oil pump, and Mobil 1 Supercar, which is specifically designed to help reduce oil aeration during aggressive driving.

  • Icon illustrating track to street on 1 oil

    Track to Street on 1 Oil

    Chevrolet and Mobil 1 recognized that oil changes take away from track time and add costs, so Mobil 1 Supercar is the first motor oil designed specifically for Corvette to deliver maximum performance on the street, on the track, and back, with one motor oil.

Let’s go back. Way back. Mobil 1™ Supercar can. That’s right, it’s backwards compatible to the first year Mobil 1 advanced synthetic motor oil came factory fill in Corvette. That means 1993 model years and newer.

Our investment in Corvette performance began with the fourth-generation Corvette, and continues with the most powerful naturally-aspirated production V8 found in a car today: the venerable Corvette Z06. The LT6 will see the first use of Mobil 1 Supercar 5W-50. The only motor oil carrying the dexosR™-spec required by the hand-built 670-hp mid-engine masterpiece. Super enough?

Only the highest performance GM engines are being factory filled with Mobil 1 Supercar. This includes the most powerful Corvette, Cadillac, and Camaro models that feature the LT1 or LT4 engines, and any future engines that require a dexosR-approved motor oil. Not only that, the Mobil 1 Supercar family of products are the first to receive the coveted dexosR-approval.
Do you own a Corvette built in 1993 or later? Do you like driving your Corvette more than changing its oil? If the answer to both questions is yes, then we recommend picking up Mobil 1 Supercar. With one exception being the seventh-generation Corvette ZR1 where we recommend Mobil 1 15W-50 when on the track.
For those with a Corvette model produced before 1993, we recommend Mobil 1 15W-50 for both street and track use. For strict track use on pre-1993 models, we recommend Mobil 1 Racing™ 0W-50. Still not sure? Send us a question here.

Mobil 1 Supercar is available at your local GM dealer and select online retailers including Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, Speedway Motors, and Summit Racing. Just type in ‘.com’ to your online retailer of choice and search for Mobil 1 Supercar to have the only dexosR oil in hand in no time.

Don't be surprised if you still find Mobil 1 ESP Formula 0W-40, the previous version of Mobil 1 Supercar 0W-40. It's the same technology but with a new look!
