M&P Speed Shop has announced a new licensing agreement with Gulf. Gulf is one of the most recognizable and iconic brands in motorsports. While Gulf had been involved in real racing for many years it was the 1971 film Le Mans that catapulted the brand into a pop-culture icon. After Le Mans hit the theaters there was a run on the jackets, shirts, and hats that were worn in the film. Everyone wanted to be as cool as Steve McQueen. From the historic Ford GT40 and Porsche 917 to the more recent McLaren F1 supercar, Gulf has enjoyed an association with some of the greatest marques and racing drivers in the history of racing.
M&P Speed Shop is already known as one of the leading suppliers of licensed automotive apparel, including working with brands like Shelby American, Drive with the Devil, and Barris Kustom City, and many more. The line will feature a number of styles of tee shirts, caps, jackets, and will reflect the heritage of Gulf.
