Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe (CSX9000)
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.
