SHELBY COBRA DAYTONA - Le Mans Coupes
Le Mans Coupes, Shelby Daytona Cobra

A SOPHISTICATED HIGH PERFORMANCE GT

Originally referred to as the “Daytona Car,” the coupe officially earned its name while being built for the Daytona Race. These cars were built to provide a more aerodynamic Cobra, allowing Shelby American to successfully compete with Ferrari on the higher speed road courses. Shelby commissioned Peter Brock to design a Coupe body for the Cobra chassis. Dubbed the Daytona Coupe, the 20 mph faster Cobra made its debut in the 1964 season. In 1965 the Coupe won eight of the eleven races it entered and it was also the first and only American made car to win the World Manufacturer’s Championship for Grand Touring Racecars.

Originally, only six Daytona Coupes were built by Shelby American who raced them between 1963 and 1965. At the end of the 1965 race season rule changes left the Cobras pretty much obsolete for racing. The Daytona Coupe transformed American road racing and has become one of the most collectible cars to currently own. Now, Shelby is recreating history with this new Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe which is the street version of the great American racer.

Le Mans Coupes

The Corvette® Grand Sport (from 1963) is built under license from General Motors Company! Built from original tooling the chassis is original grand sport. The body is made from original moulds.
Duntov built this car to beat the AC cobra which had been crushing the Corvettes since launching in 62. As such he built it at 7/8th scale to a 1963 'vette, the bodywork was paper thin and the split window was cut out (sorry corvette fans!) To install a plexiglass lightweight rear window, also helping with visibility.
Available as a road or FIA HTP race car. The road cars have Aircon, electric windows, tilt adjustable steering, touring interior, power steering, power brakes and central locking. The race cars do not!
Available with period wheels or larger modern wheels both with pin drive and center knock off.
Originals were fibreglass too, not aluminium! The road at also has a boot where the rear access panel on the race cars was. Contact us to find out more.

My first car was a scamp. So to have the GT40 next to one at their HQ just down the road from ours was a real joy. The classic bikes were just the icing on the cake.
