Our CAV GT40 Recreation was built in 2009 on special order for the head of CAV America. He spent a month and a half traveling to South Africa to personally supervise and contribute to the build of this car. The car was then used as his personal car and maintained it to the highest levels. It was completely assembled at the factory, by the factory, something very rarely seen on early CAVs. Most CAV GT40 cars of this era arrived in the US partially assembled with final assembly completed by other shops. While at the factory a large suite of photos documenting the car's build were taken. CAV is known to be one of the best, if not the best GT40 replica. CAV cars are not kit cars. They are factory built to the highest standards using state of the art techniques and a stainless steel monocoque.

According to the factory, this car has over 1000 improvements over the earlier (pre 100) cars. This includes improved suspension, adjustable seat and pedal box (for increased comfort and the ability to seat drivers up to 6'4), improved air conditioning, 930 Porsche CV joints, thicker halfshafts, improved suspension uprights,
fully adjustable suspension, and Wilwood brakes.

The car is stunning in its Gulf livery. The photos do not do this car justice. It is a true homage to the Gulf GT40s that dominated Lemans. The GT 40 will be featured in the upcoming major motion picture FORD V. FERRARI due out in November of 2019.

CAV is the only company to be officially licensed to sell a Gulf motorsport car. Neither Porsche nor the other GT40 replica manufacturers are licensed to do Gulf cars. CAV is the only officially sanctioned Gulf GT40 replica. The car is registered with the Gulf Oil Company registry and is officially endorsed by them.
Another unique feature of our car is it is the only CAV GT40 signed by 6 time Le Mans winning Jackie Ickx. Jackie helped lead the FORD GT40's to victory in 1969 after a dead last start.

The 302 motor setup in the car is done to the highest level, having been built up professionally by a gentleman that builds motors for South African V8 racecars. Induction is via Weber Carburation - another expensive and rare option not often seen on these cars. The engine was fully balanced and blueprinted. The Webers were recently re-tuned and the car runs and drives extremely well. The car also runs the more robust Audi O1E transaxle, a large improvement over the previous Audi 015 transaxle.

This is a rare opportunity to own a Gulf GT40 recreation by one of the finest companies in the industry. This car delivers excitement and performance that exceeds far more expensive cars. While other cars may look the part few can deliver the exhilaration this car delivers. To get in and drive this car is a very special experience, a step back in time when cars were raw and visceral. Man and machine became one.

Our CAV GT40 has excellent provenance and is a very unique example, having been owned by the head of CAV North America. This car has been meticulously documented and maintained and is considered one of the best CAVs offered for sale anywhere.
