Kitty Lubricant

Hold on, this is not shampoo for your cat or some cat food. Though it may seem weird but this is a three-liter can of Hello Kitty synthetic engine oil. The Japanese cat brand has appeared on everything from contact lenses, to tailpipes, to the AK-47 assault rifle.

Hello Kitty was created by designer Yuko Shimizu, and is owned by Japanese firm Sanrio. The character was first introduced in 1974 as a vinyl change purse. The character is said to generate more than $1 billion annually, not including sales in Japan.

The oil will be sold by Italian fuel station company Agip for ¥2,980, currently equivalent to USD $33. Maybe some female fans of Hello Kitty may pursue their boyfriends to use this engine oil in their cars 

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
