Sleek carbon fibre cowling revealed for Cox Powertrain's CXO300

by Saltwater Stone 18 Sep 07:49 PDT

The exceptional performance and innovative features of British marine specialist Cox Powertrain's high-perfromance diesel outboard have now been topped with stylish good looks following the creation of a robust, contemporary-styled carbon fibre cowling.

Created by high-precision specialist, CPC Group, which works with high-profile names including Ducati, McLaren and Porsche, the durable, lightweight protective housing is available in black or white.

Images of the CXO300's final styling have now been released ahead of its imminent production launch this year. The engine itself has been in development for over a decade and no care has been spared in the preparation of its casing which has been designed to be as strong and light as possible while also looking great with angular lines, stylish vents and accents of colour.

Carbon fibre is renowned for delivering impressive stiffness, strength, chemical and heat resistance, making it popular with the military and motorsports industry, and ideal for use in the harsh marine environment. For Cox's engineering team, carbon fibre was the natural choice to protect the advanced technology of world's first 300hp diesel outboard and the high-precision mechanical machining specialists at CPC the ideal team to create its cutting-edge, premium cowling.

Global Sales Director Joel Reid commented: "While exceptional performance, fuel efficiency and cost of ownership savings are undoubtedly the headline features of the CXO300, we felt it was important its cowling should not only be as rugged, durable and lightweight as possible but should also look great. Current trends are seeing more creative styling for high-end outboards like the CXO300 and many customers want engines that look as good as their boat. That's why, in addition to our standard black and white options, custom colours and stylish decals will be available in the future."

At the same time as offering the increased safety and fuel efficiency benefits of a diesel, as the first heavy-duty non-gasoline outboard the CXO300 also offers reduced maintenance and haul out costs. The CXO300 also provides at least a 25% better range compared to a gasoline outboard and 100% higher peak torque at the crankshaft than the leading gasoline 300hp outboards, which enables craft to move more weight more efficiently and reach peak torque and top power more quickly.
