    Auctions: McQueen's Porsche 917 from Le Mans races to the auction block
    1403532900

    Steve McQueen may have been the headline actor of the motorsport cult classic film Le Mans, but we all know who the real star was. Or rather, what: the Porsche 917. More specifically, it was the Gulf-liveried #22 – not McQueen's #21 – that won the race, making it one of the most ...

    Official: Morgan launches 3 Wheeler in Gulf livery
    1354384800

    We love the classic baby blue and orange Gulf livery as much as anyone, but when everything from the Tata Nano to a DeLorean and even a racing-grade semi truck (okay, the semi is pretty cool...) is painted in the scheme, it might be time to give it a rest. With perhaps one notable exception: this ...

    These days, you only have a Ball chair in your office if you're an evil genius or confused enough to think it's still 1962. The clever artists at Racing & Emotion Design are out to change all that, though. The company has taken it upon themselves to slather the spherical seating, as well as ...

    121-foot megayacht en-Gulfed by classic racing livery
    1308688140

    Most mega yachts come in white. Some cut a different path through the water with dark blue, forest green or even dark red hulls. But this, this is something else entirely. The proud new owner of the 37-meter (121-foot) motor yacht you see here is evidently a certifiable car nut. He named his ...

    Video: Recreating Ken Block's Gymkhana... in a Gulf-livery semi truck
    1301675400

    Demonstrations in Bahrain cause Grand Prix cancellation
    1298311080

    Politics and racing don't go together. Whether it's former FIA president Max Mosley's fascist sympathies or the dispute over Cyprus being played out on the podium of the Turkish Grand Prix, there's just no place for it in motorsports. But with political unrest spreading across the Arab world, it ...

    Gulf and Fiat team up in Luxembourg for a special edition 500 Abarth
    1296169260

    There have been some iconic racing liveries over the course of motorsport history. Martini, Marlboro, JPS... we could go on, but none carry the enthusiasm of the classic Gulf color combo. Maybe it's because of Steve McQueen's cult classic Le Mans. Maybe it's the irony of the pastel colors on ...
