Vehicle Description

Very few people have seen a GT40 in person, but a company called CAV out of South Africa has made it possible to own such a vehicle for a fraction of the price of an authentic GT. This version of the 1966 GT offers more than just a typical “kit car”, instead it has been perfected by adding thousands of modifications making it a truly amazing “faithful reproduction” of a motorsport legend. What makes this version so unique is the application of a monocoque frame, meaning the body and frame are built as a single integrated structure. In addition, if we know anything about these old school race cars, it’s that there was not a lot of space or comfort inside of them, this CAV version however is designed so that the driver can adjust both the seat and pedals, allowing someone as tall as 6’4” to comfortably drive. The exterior details are nearly identical to the original, right down to the Gulf livery. And of course, CAV is the only company licensed to make the 1966 Gulf GT40. The car is registered with the Gulf company registry and is officially endorsed by them. Last but certainly not least is the power plant. Normally CAV offers a Roush 427 V8 to power their cars. Surely that is more than sufficient! Not this Gulf replica, it is powered by an authentic Shelby CSX aluminum 427 with a whopping 600 horsepower. The same motor that Shelby American uses in their CSX cobras. With a transaxle 5 speed manual transmission who wouldn’t want to show this off at the track? Owning and driving this car would be a great way to pay respect to the legendary drivers who raced and dominated at Le Mans and more. Carrol Shelby would be proud of this machine.

MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle's condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable. But MAXmotive does not warrant or guarantee this information as a basis for purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
