Only 130 original
Ford GT40s were ever made. Although almost all survived the rigours
of the race track, each one is now worth a not-so-small
fortune, putting it beyond the reach of many would-be owners.
The CAV GT
is such a vehicle. Today, CAV manufactures the GT with a respectful

was faster than a 1960s Formula 1 car in a straight line.
has been further enhanced: CAV has modernized the GT's suspension
and braking systems, bringing them on par with 21st century high-end
