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.
