Shell PurePlus technology
Shell PurePlus Technology is a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into
crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil.
Shell’s technical partnership with Ferrari
The Shell Helix technical story goes back over seven decades. Today, a worldwide network of scientists develops and
tests our lubricant technologies. An important element of this work is Shell’s technical partnership with Ferrari,
which helps to keep us at the forefront of the race to develop the engine oils of the future.
Shell’s technical partnership with Ferrari is one of the most successful collaborations in the history of world-class motorsport, with
over 150 Formula One race wins by the end of 2010. For more than 60 years Ferrari has been synonymous with high performance
cars, on the race track and the road. When the very first Ferrari drove out of the factory gates in Maranello, Italy, it was powered
and protected by Shell.
