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.

Throwback to our first client GT40. The livery is very appropriate as this car was delivered to the late, great Alan Mann who ran GT40s and other iconic cars in period.
What livery do you think is most iconic on a GT40?

English Fords !!

Simply stunning

Probably the Gulf one but the same could be said for the 917...so maybe it should be shelby stripes 🤷🏼‍♂️

A GT40 is such an iconic car it would look great with any livery but if I could afford one it would have to be in the gulf livery

I liked the "Holman and Moody" cars for 1966.. Number 1, Number 5 and Number 6...

Gulf

So great to see the growth and success of Hyper Racer and this exciting news. Looking forward to bringing this level of expansion to the UK market📣 ANNOUNCEMENT 📣

Hyper Racer appoints Summons Racing for Customer Racing expansion.

HYPER RACER is excited to announce the appointment of the Victorian based organisation, SUMMONS RACING, to provide Hyper Racer customer support for sales, leasing plans, “Arrive & Drive” packages, storage, maintenance, transport and track requirements.

The appointment of Summons Racing provides additional factory space adjacent to Hyper Racer HQ, tripling the available floor space to support the ever growing demand.

Summons Racing founder, Rob Summons, is extremely pleased with the association with Hyper Racer. “We absolutely love Hyper Racer, the low cost ethos of going racing as well as the product itself, an extremely fast racing car”, he said. When prompted about how the association came about, he added, “The Hyper Racer team made it clear that they were fast running out of space and in desperate need of room to scale and grow to fill the number of orders coming in.”

With Summons Racing (Vic) and Carbon Racing (NSW) providing race support, Hyper Racer can now focus on the manufacturing of new cars to add to the grid throughout the 2024 season and beyond.

Most definitely.

I would love one

You are absolutely right. Beautiful machine.

Very nice, but not as sweet as the AC cars version., the a98 coupe

Jackasses will still say it's "not real" while driving their minivans though.
