LOS ANGELES – As part of its ongoing celebration of Japanese culture and automotive tradition, the Petersen Automotive Museum has gathered the most unique and iconic Japanese performance vehicles in the world under one roof. On each of the museum, guests will find rare examples of Japanese craftsmanship that encompasses a broad range of styles including post-war classics, heavily-modified tuners, supercars and futuristic prototypes.
Beginning in the Vault presented by Hagerty, visitors will find a 1997 Toyota Supra Turbo. Continuing up the elevator to the first floor is a selection of post-war classics such as a 1968 Honda S600 Coupe, which is considered Honda’s first mass-marketed automobile.
On the second floor, the Bruce Meyer Family Gallery and Customization Gallery are home to “The Roots of Monozokuri” and “Fine Tuning,” which represent the interchange that has taken place between east and west for the past 60 years. Key performance vehicles on display in “The Roots of Monozokuri” include Nissan’s first V12-powered racecar, a 1969 Nissan R382, and the world’s first mass-produced two-rotor vehicle, a 1969 Mazda Cosmo Sport 100S. “Fine Tuning” presents a more avant-garde selection of tuner cars including the 1974 Mazda RX-3 built by DNA Garage and a 1993 Toyota Supra Mark IV, which famously became a pop culture icon following its appearance in the film “The Fast and the Furious.”
Offering a third perspective on Japanese design philosophy, the new “Japanese Supercars” exhibit in the Chuck Wegner Gallery gives visitors a rare glimpse of boldly styled, ultra-high performance vehicles. Cars on display include two one-of-a-kind cars straight from Japan. The 1978 Dome Zero, widely recognized from the video game “Gran Turismo,” is continuing its first-ever tour of North America as a key feature in this display. Sharing the Zero’s exclusively, the world’s only 1998 Nissan R390 GT1 has just arrived at the museum following the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, where Nissan was this year’s featured marque.
In addition to the above cars. the Petersen is showcasing two Infiniti prototypes for a limited time only outside the Mullin Design Studio. Representing Infiniti’s innovative and ambitious plans for an electrified future, the 2017 Infiniti Prototype 9 and the 2018 Prototype 10 have never before been displayed together in a public setting.
The Petersen’s third-floor Perspectives Gallery contains a broad look at automotive history including Hollywood star cars such as the 1967 Toyota 2000GT Roadster from the film “You Only Live Twice.” Driven by James Bond’s love interest, this 2000GT was one of the only two models turned into a convertible.
“In one day at the Petersen, guests can experience 60 years of Japanese culture and automotive tradition,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “Our Japanese car collection not only covers the past six decades of Japanese dominance in the domestic market but truly illustrates the artfulness and shrewd attention-to-detail that is characteristic of Japanese design philosophy.”

OIL FOR THE NEWEST MERCEDES ENGINES
The be LIQUI MOLY Top Tec 6300 0W-20 is one of the first with the Mercedes approval 229.71.
September 2018 – The newest car engines by Mercedes require a very special oil. The new Top Tec 6300 0W-20 by LIQUI MOLY is one of the first oils to be officially approved by Mercedes for them. “This is a double leap in development – both for the engine technology of Mercedes and for our oil technology,” says Oliver Kuhn, deputy manager of the LIQUI MOLY oil laboratory.
The current E-Class models by Mercedes require such an oil, as do several models in the C and S-Class. These include diesel vehicles as well as gasoline and hybrid vehicles. Top Tec 6300 is officially approved by Mercedes (MB 229.71). “Such an official manufacturer approval is the highest quality award that an oil can receive,” says Oliver Kuhn. “It says that the car manufacturer has tested the oil themselves and consider it to be good.” Top Tec 6300 is not just suitable for new Mercedes models, but also for Jaguar and Land Rover models (STJLR.51.5122).
What characterizes such a state-of-the-art oil? Most obviously, with a viscosity of 0W-20 it is a very low viscosity oil. “The thinner the oil, the less inner friction it has and the more efficiently the engine works,” says Oliver Kuhn. This is one of the many adjust screws in engine development in order to reduce consumption and emissions. “The challenge is, despite this low viscosity, to ensure lubrication even under extreme conditions.” It is also low ash. This means that combustion residues of the oil do not burden the exhaust gas treatment systems. With a different oil, for example, the diesel or gasoline particulates filters would quickly become blocked and have to be expensively replaced.
As with other engine oils, Top Tec 6300 is so special that it cannot be used for other vehicles. If it is filled into an engine that is not designed for it, there could be heavy friction and even engine damage. Oliver Kuhn: “This is the price for ever more efficient engines: Oil becomes a liquid replacement part that only fits very specific engines.”
Devin Kennedy is a singer/songwriter/producer based out of Los Angeles. The Berklee College of Music has garnered over 400k streams in 2018 & has been chosen as this year’s “Best New Emerging Artist” by the Hollywood Music & Media Awards.
