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.

Pleased to introduce our new demo car. Currently in 'Turn key minus' form. When the car arrives in the UK, we do the engine and transaxle installation, add the fluids, battery and tyres then get it road legal. Something to really look forward to in this strange time.
We still have our current demo car available for a test drive for anyone interested in a GT40. Will be available to test when the government says it is safe to do so.

When @privatemotorclub took the Daytona cobra to Alan Mann racing. Alan was our first GT40 customer in the UK and he ran the Daytona cobras in period. We asked the great man himself if he would be happy for us to run our CSX9000 series Shelby Daytona Cobra in his colours as a tribute to his success with the car - which he ran in Shelby liveries - and he kindly said yes. A true legend of the sport and so great to see Henry continuing the business and the name in great style. @alanmannracing ... See MoreSee Less
