    Specially Modified Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia Relies on World's
Leading Synthetic Motor Oil

    FAIRFAX, VA., August 9 /CNW/ - Beginning on August 3, 24 Porsche teams
driving Porsche Cayenne sport utility vehicles filled with Mobil 1 viscosity
grade OW-40 will compete in one of the world's toughest automotive rally
events. Covering 7,100 kilometers (4,412 miles) of forests, deserts, mountains
and plains over 14 days, the drivers' spirits, navigational skills and engines
will be tested by a challenging route that will take them from Moscow to the
Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar.

    "From the initial design of the Porsche Cayenne, Mobil 1 has collaborated
with Porsche engineers on the special lubricant requirements necessary to meet
the challenges of every driving environment," says Hauke Braack, Strategic
Global Alliance Manager, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties
Company. "We are proud to be a part of this exciting, multi-terrain journey
and wish all of the Porsche Cayenne teams well in the competition."

    Mobil 1 provides a variety of performance benefits to the Cayenne. These
include fuel economy, excellent oil flow characteristics and outstanding
engine wear protection. Mobil 1 can operate in a temperature range from
-45C(-49F) to +200C (+392F). Mobil 1 0W-40 is ideally suited for
high-performance super-charged and turbo-charged engines.

    Porsche uses Mobil 1 as factory-fill in all its current vehicle models
and also recommends the lubricant for all service fills.

    Mobil 1 is original equipment in a number of other high-performance
vehicles. Mobil 1 is the world's leading synthetic motor oil brand.

    Mobil 1 is a trademark of Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:   XOM) or one of
its subsidiaries.
