The manufacturers of the CAV GT have secured the exclusive rights to finish their car in the famous Gulf Oil Livery. The Gulf Oil colors became synonymous with the iconic GT40 in the late sixties with consecutive Le Mans wins in ’68 and ’69.
The agreement licenses the CAV GT to be the only GT40 recreation to officially carry the full Gulf Oil Livery. After the ’68 and ’69 victories of the J.W.A. Gulf team, the GT40 would be forever remembered as the powder blue car with an orange stripe that beat the best at Le Mans.
The CAV GT Gulf Oil cars will be complete with Gulf flare rear wheel arches, period BRM rims.
The cars will also have special chassis plates identifying them as being officially licensed Gulf Oil cars. Their chassis numbers will be added to the Gulf Oil CAV GT Register and the history of these cars will be tracked. Owners will receive an official certificate from Gulf Oil confirming that the car is a licensed Gulf Oil car.
These cars are available in different versions of the Gulf Oil color scheme, complete with period sponsor decals
The CAV GT has a tig-welded, stainless-steel monocoque chassis designed for torsional stiffness. Its integrity is ensured through CNC punched and bent panels and laser cut parts.
The chassis is welded in jigs and its dimensional accuracy is superb. It features an integral roll over bar and side impact protection bars. Every CAV GT chassis is manufactured to accept a bolt-in roll cage for racing purposes.
The CAV GT exhaust models the original design.
It is a stainless steel ‘Bundle of Snakes’ eight branch header system with two collectors, muffler and stainless steel heat shield.
