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.

A few shots from @silverstonecircuit this weekend with @clubmanscsp shot by @aleksander.ac
Car showed great promise all weekend except for an issue with the coils in qualifying meaning we started from the pits. P32 to p13 in race 1. P9 to P7 in race 2 and A DNF in race 3 having been running in 4th for a while. (Fire extinguisher went off without warning … time to revert back to pull chord operation)
Few jobs to do and new bodywork to fit then we will be set for Brands Hatch in May

The Spartan is the perfect blend between old school minimalistic design and modern technology. The 60s inspired aesthetics are complimented by cutting edge Tractive active dampers, Quaife sequential gearbox with flat-shifter and top flight motorsport hardware and software.
A 5 star review from Evo suggests the blend is just right, contact us today to arrange a viewing/ test drive and see for yourself

The heart and soul of the Spartan being admired by prototype 2. Fast and powerful without any compromise on safety. The supercharged Honda K24 pumps out over 400bhp propelling the CAMS safety approved chassis to 100km/h in the low 2 seconds.
Power figures to be confirmed after our rolling road session in the coming weeks.

After a rather turbulent 12 months with lockdowns in Australia and the ensuing disruptions, we are delighted to say the Spartan is now built and getting prepped for its first start. Some photos of the process will be posted over the next few days and weeks and we are beyond excited to share videos and photos of the complete car. Anticipated arrival (assuming no shipping delays) is June.

Here is a little teaser of the engine in situ. More to follow soon
