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.

Thought we would start your day off with a view of a solid ‘rear of the year’ contender. The Spartan is a modern interpretation of a 1960s canam racer with inspiration from cars of the period. It really is a work of art. A very effective piece of art! Thanks to @cotswoldalex for the pictures taken at @silverstonecircuit @motorsportdays live ... See MoreSee Less

Welcome to a very exclusive club

I’d love to feature one of these in Beards ‘n Cars. The most beautiful design of all time. Had the great experience of telling Peter Brock that and discussing his other cars too which was awesome

If my dream came true Oliver, I’d be over to you like a shot to get one for me! Only sorry I didn’t get to drive the one you had before Covid and had also sold! They don’t hang around do they! Congratulations.

Stunning car 👌

Perfect
