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 fiber 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 color.

Carbon fiber 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 fiber 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.

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.
