Team Fuel Mansory Bentley Continental GT
Richie Warren and his Team FUEL are back for their 5th Gumball 3000. After driving the ‘flaming’ BMW 850i in 2001 and 2004, the 1970’s Dodge Challenger in 2005 and the Nissan 180sx in 2006, Richie got his hands on an amazing Mansory Bentley Continental GT in full FUEL livery. Dan Joyce is most likely Richie’s co-pilot again.
Team 20 – Turkish Taxi
Very little is known about this team, but we’ve heard they spend over 20.000 pounds to make the taxi Gumball worthy!
Porsche 997 Turbo Speedart
Gumball 3000 veteran Uno Gomes will be back at the startline in 2007. After succesful winning the Ferrari vs Lamborghini bet last year he exchanged his Ferrari F430 for a brand new Porsche 997 Turbo. Tuned by speedart this promises to be one of the faster cars on the grid!
Team Carbonyte – Stretched Ferrari 360 Modena
Although their car is still work in progress, the pictures already show their target very clear: build the most crazy and fastest limousine you’ve ever seen!
