Champion Brands Enters the Hot Rod Market


Champion Brands has developed full synthetic and synthetic blend motor oils for the classic, vintage, hot rod, and muscle car market. Champion Hot Rod Oils are designed to protect high performance engines by replacing the vital additives that have been removed from current API spec oils. Champion Hot Rod Oils are available in 10W-30 and 20W-50 synthetic blend grades and 15W-50 full synthetic.

Champion Brands' Hot Rod Oils are purpose build for vintage, classic, hot rod and muscle cars that need more protection than current API specification motor oil can provide.

Champion Brands' three new engine oils also contain special lubricity modifiers to reduce friction, and unlock the full potential of any engine. Exceptional cars deserve exceptional oil. Available in:
