“Shell was there alongside the earliest motorsport pioneers and had an embedded history within motorsport. The latest collection celebrates some of the best race cars that redefined the racing world such as the Hyundai i20 hybrid rally car and Team Penske’s Indycar,” explained Seow Lee Ming, General Manager, Mobility, Shell Malaysia, about what each model in the collection represents in Shell’s long-standing motorsport history.
The Hyundai i20 hybrid rally car won the latest WRC championship in Greece and has secured victories on all terrains i.e. gravel, snow, mixed, and tarmac. Likewise, Team Penske’s Indycar is a trailblazer in the Indycar industry and boasts a 100% renewable race fuel with a 60% greenhouse gas emissions reduction.
“Our customers have always been at the heart of our business. Every time they stop at Shell, we want them to have an opportunity to create unforgettable memories with their family and friends. With our latest collection, we are happy to offer our customers a quick escape from reality, while enjoying an adrenaline-thrilled RC race with their loved ones, anywhere,” she added.
The limited edition Shell Motorsport Collection cars have a special feature i.e. a proprietary rechargeable lithium Smart Battery with integrated Bluetooth chip. The battery is developed in partnership with BrandBase and 12 right holders such as Ferrari, BMW, Hyundai, Ford, and Nissan.
Each car comes with an electric engine and can be controlled by smartphone via the Shell Racing app. The app is free for download from Apple App Store and Google Play, and combines both remote and digital play.
