CAO introduces the CAO V23, comparing it in press copy to the GT40 MK1, the Ford hot rod that beat Ferrari at Le Mans in the 60s.
“The new CAO V23 celebrates 100 years of Le Mans and the American muscle car that took the racing world by storm,” senior brand manager Ed Lahmann said in a press release. “Just as a legendary race car like the GT40 MK1 had substance and style, so does V23.”
The 6 x 60 V23 ($13.99) features a Honduran wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan filler. It comes in a GT-inspired, 20-count box with Ford/Gulf colors and an interior that gives a nod to the GT’s tufted leather seat.
The V23 ships on September 1.
