the Gordon Murray T25.

Shell was responsible for providing all the fluids of the car, including custom-made motor oil for gasoline three-cylinder 0.66-liter engine has been redesigned and optimized since its inauguration in 2010. During the testing, Shell Concept three seats consumed 2.64 l / 100 km at a constant speed of 70 km / h.

Shell can thank his customized lubricant, CO2 emissions of 4.67 g CO2 / km on the New European Driving Cycle. Of course for now, the oil giant has not come out of the production version.

In 2010, Gordon Murray has a small car that consumes very little: the T.25. Dedicated to the city, she uses a prototype developed by Shell Oil, which “stimulates energy efficiency” of the vehicle. Six years of development and a “complete overhaul” allowed a new concept development. Now the module is 550 kg offers an aerodynamic body with a drag coefficient of just 0.29. To do this, the oil giant has developed a body of recycled carbon fiber.

According Shell, the design of the “body” amounts to a quarter of the price of the assembly of a conventional car with a steel body. Moreover, almost all the car can be recycled at the end of its life cycle.
