Elvis Presley Viva Las Vegas mobie Cobra has taken pride of place on packed Motul stand.

As well as checking out some of the best that Motul has to offer for vehicle owners and restorers, visitors to the Motul stand at this weekend’s Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show with Discovery+ at the NEC have the chance to get up close and personal with the AC Cobra that was driven in the Elvis Presley movie Viva Las Vegas.

The AC Cobra is a true 1960s icon, in automotive terms, and the car on the stand – an original Shelby competition specification 289 Cobra, chassis number CSX 2038 – was rented out to MGM for the movie and Motul is delighted to have it on the stand.

Motul is also celebrating the 60th anniversary of Lamborghini, with a Marcello Gandini-designed supercar – the fabulous Countach LP500 – also being a huge attraction on the stand.

Motul‘s stand in Hall 5 (325) – also features the brand’s Classic Lubricants selection for historic vehicles of all eras, as well as Motul’s additive offer – both Professional and Consumer – and the Club Motul section of the stand, which displays Motul’s retro merchandise range. Everyone who purchases Motul product during the show is in with a chance of becoming a VIP for this year’s Goodwood Revival, for which Motul is the official lubricant partner.

Motul’s presence at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show with Discovery+ is further enhanced by the the Paddock Speedshop stand, which is located directly across the aisle from the Motul stand. Paddock Speedshop – the new vehicle restoration TV programme aimed at the next generation of classic car enthusiasts and restorers – is setting up its stand as a workshop set, which will be packed fully of Motul product and equipment. Motul’s BioClean sustainable parts washing system will be showcased, as will the company’s 3in1 additive machine which, when plugged in, can deliver a variety of additives, allowing other work to be done while the flushing and replenishing is taking place.

The Motul Morris Minor competition car will be one of the feature cars on the Paddock Speedshop stand, and visitors will be able to see the progress made since its appearance at last year’s show, as the car heads towards its competition debut later this year. The stars of Paddock Speedshop will be working on the stand during the show

Motul staff are on hand throughout, to offer lubricant advice and provide solutions for those looking to restore, maintain or enhance their classics.

“We are delighted to be back at the show with such a strong presence. Motul is heavily vested in the historic vehicle sector, and I think we really have something for everyone this year,” enthuses Motul UK General Sales and Marketing Manager, Andy Wait.
