Caffè Veloce to Ferrari fans today at Brunetti café in Carlton,

The Shell V-Power Caffè Veloce has been specially blended by

chocolate.The four ounce Shell V-Power Caffè Veloce will be available for

March 17 and Sunday March 18 between 1pm-2pm.The advances made

together with Ferrari have enabled Shell to develop a world-class road fuel,

Shell V-Power.The road fuel is 99 percent the same types of compounds

found in the Shell V-Power race fuel being used by Ferrari in the 2012
Formula One World Championship.Shell V-Power is designed to improve

performance and
responsiveness by cleaning power-stealing deposits from the
valves and injection system inside your engine.It also actively reduces

friction by introducing a surface coating
component to protect critical engine parts and unlock valuable energy.

This technology has powered Ferrari to 10 FIA Formula One World

Championship Constructors? and 12 Drivers? titles alongside Shell.

"The technology we used to develop Shell V-Power for the
road comes directly from the work we are doing in Formula One,
but that?s not the end of the process - far from it," Cara
Tredget, Shell Formula One Technology Manager, said."In Formula One

you are always pushing for that little bit
of extra performance and that?s a philosophy Shell also applies
to our road-going products."Use the following login details to download a
