MAHLE Performance engine bearings now to include coverage for Asian and European luxury and performance vehicles. MAHLE Clevite, long trusted for withstanding the harshest environment, will continue to be available for light to heavy-duty vehicles.

Leading development for the new performance gasket brand is Tod Richards, MAHLE Aftermarket’s Performance Gasket and Piston Rings Coordinator. Richards says, “MAHLE has had the good fortune to have longstanding relationships with top racers to help develop this line. We are entering the market strong with over 300 part numbers which we plan to double in size in due time. There are definitely gaps of what is being supplied currently. It is our plan to become the number one trusted source for performance gaskets that can handle the harshest environment.”

Our goal is for the words MAHLE and Performance to be synonymous and to make sure that engine builders, racers and enthusiasts will not have to look further than MAHLE to get the parts they need.”
