GM Performance: COPO Camaro
In 2012, GM made a bold decision to bring back its legendary COPO Camaro. Only 69 models are built each year with a waiting list of thousands of automotive enthusiasts hoping to buy one. The purpose-built race cars are a nod to GM’s past, while representing the latest in engine development technology in their modern LT1, 427, and LSX engines. GM Performance turned to VP to provide a test fuel for engine dyno testing and track tuning. VP’s C12 fuel was endorsed by GM for use in the COPO Camaro for maximum performance and reliability.
Ford Performance: Cobra Jet & Bronco
When Ford needed a specialty fuel for the development of its supercharged V-8 engine drag car package, they turned to VP Racing Fuels. VP worked closely with Ford Racing to provide fuel formulation expertise to support dyno testing and development. VP’s C16 fuel was recommended by Ford for use in the Cobra Jet for maximum performance and reliability.
When Ford decided to bring back the legendary Bronco in 2020, they entrusted Offroad Hall of Fame racer Cameron Steele to prepare them for offroad action. Cameron turned to VP for first-fill fuel, coolant, and lubricants to deliver industry leading performance in extreme conditions. For instance, VP’s Stay Frosty®️ coolant lowers engine temperatures up to 30O F and protects sensitive aluminum cooling system components from corrosion caused by electrolysis.
RTR Vehicles was founded in 2009 by Formula Drift superstar Vaughn Gittin Jr. to create extreme versions of Ford’s F-150, Ranger and Mustang models. Their latest 700hp Mustang versions are inspired by the 1200hp RTR Motorsports drift Mustangs that use VP fuel and coolant, and are endorsed by Gittin himself.
Zenvo Hypercar Factory First Fills
In 2022 Zenvo Automotive appointed VP Racing Fuels as its official fuels and technical fluids partner in a move that will support both brands’ global expansion, and customer growth. VP Products will be used for first fluid fills for all Zenvo cars coming out of the production facility at its state-of-the-art Danish headquarters as well as lead the promotion of VP products such as fuels, coolants, and additives to its past and current base of customers. This partnership will see collaboration on exclusive marketing and brand exposure strategies, product promotion and technical expertise and engineering.
Sherco USA + Trials 2ST Fuel
VP continues a 50-year tradition of working with motorcycle OEMs by developing specialty 2-stroke fuels for Sherco’s trial bikes. Sherco needed a stable, high-performance option to pump gas as trial bikes require maximum throttle response for steep climbing use. VP’s ability to formulate and deliver highly stable performance fuels to support factory production requirements make it the endorsed first-fill fuel of Sherco’s trial and non-trial bikes.
M-Sport provides the engineering expertise behind the award-winning range of Ford rally cars, the Bentley Continental GT3, and is the technical partner for Jaguar’s I-PACE eTROPHY. M-Sport was awarded the Ford contract for rallying as well as competition research and development in 1996. The team has won multiple FIA World Rally Championship for Manufacturers crowns in 2006, 2007 and 2017. In 2015, when M-Sport wanted to develop a racing fuel for engine development of their R2 and R5 Fiesta models, they turned to VP Racing Fuels. VP developed its R5.1 FIA certified fuel at the M-Sport facility in the UK through a close collaboration with the technical teams at M-Sport. R5.1 is now a leading rally fuel in the UK and beyond.
