The 2008 CAV GT Gulf Oil Edition is a car made by and for the fans, inspired by the mythical Ford GT40. It comes to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of his biggest conquest, the victory at the 24h Le Mans race against the powerful Ferrari.
The CAV GT is powered by a 5.6 liters small block Ford V8 347 engine that delivers 500 hp , complete with Gulf flare rear wheel arches, period BRM rims, Weber IDF carburetors, nubuck leather interior with subtle Gulf Oil logos embroidered on the seats and 5-point safety harnesses. The cars will also have special chassis plates identifying them as being officially licensed Gulf Oil Cars. Their chassis numbers will be added to a Gulf Oil CAV GT register and the history of these cars will be tracked. Owners receive an official certificate from Gulf Oil confirming that the vehicle is a licensed Gulf Oil car. The cars will be available in four different versions of the color scheme, complete with period sponsor stickers.
The car makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 4.5 seconds and the 0 to 100 mph in 9.5 seconds.
