There is a first gen focus near me that has the purple/green/gold flip paint you normally find on a TVR

The paint job must be worth more than the car itself



Image stolen from the TVR forum so does/did belong to somebody on here. Gorgeous car.
I'm still trying to figure out what this has to do with this thread confused

Last Le Mans, friday evening (so the mind was a little fuzzy) I made a bet that I will turn up at Le Mans with a Bentley or Rolls in Gulf Livery. My preference goes out to a Turbo R, end 80's. Luckily the time to fulfill this one is 10 years, this gives me a little time to save up some pennies. Expect a Baby Blue/Orange Bentley before the end of the decennium turning up at the Houx!

But it doesn't look good on anything, btw:

Gulf colours look mint on nearly all things.

exhibit A:

A few years back we converted my mates Transit from this


to this


as it was a le mans trip vehicle. alot of fun was had by us giving it a B&Q standard make over.
It also got a lot of attention whilst driving through and around france.

I've come to the conclusion that all vans look better in race livery, simply because it makes them look like race-support vehicles.

I can picture that Transit carrying tools and spare parts for a Group C car.

I nearly bought a pair of these a couple of months back:



Til I realised I'd have nothing to wear them with, and I'd look like a fud.

Big fan of the Gulf livery and intend to use on my next race car. Any experience dealing with Gulf to get their approval for motorsport use ? I've emailed their UK contact but have not heard back yet...

Looks like it, altho the blue looks a bit better in those pics - may have just been reflections.

I think it's become really naff covering everything in Gulf colours. But Gulf haven't helped themselves by sponsoring indiscriminately in recent years. I await being told I'm some form of racing heretic.

Well, I'm not 100% about this, but think the wheels might be putting me off more than the livery...
