About CAV

Cape Advanced Vehicles was founded in 1999 to produce Ford GT40 replicas in South Africa. Our company name honours Ford Advanced Vehicles which was founded in 1963 – the manufacturers of the original GT40 racing cars.

Over more than two decades and four platform generations, our GT40 has evolved into the restomods we produce today. From our one-of-a-kind Stainless Steel monocoque chassis to our bespoke leather interior, we are proud to produce some of the best GT40 restomods in the world. Comfortable, user-friendly, unique and timeless.

Underneath the beautiful fit and finish are serious upgrades: Improved driver ergonomics, updated suspension design and visceral performance – improving the GT40 design whilst celebrating its heritage and legendary appeal.

So much passion goes into creating every CAV vehicle. Join us online, on the road and on the track to celebrate the GT40!
