Gulf racing cars: a tribute
Collection of racers in glorious classic orange ‘n’ blue goes on display in Paris. Coolest. Livery. Ever

If you decorate your car in orange and pastel blue, you will be ridiculed. Mocked. Laughed at. Decorate a racing motor in the same livery, however, and suddenly you will be lauded as a Driving God, a purveyor of handling excellence. Put simply, Gulf colours Rule with a capital ‘R'.
Now, a collection of the most famous Gulf Oil-sponsored racing cars is going on display at the Retromobile show in Paris, where you, mon amie, will have the opportunity to ogle these classic machines.
Should your innate fear of the nihilistic, post-modern apocalypse that is today's society shackle you to the innards of your abode, we have compiled this gallery, providing a safe, painless means of viewing said machinery. Click, and enjoy...
