The Shelby Daytona Coupe (also referred to as the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe) is an American sports-coupé related to the AC Cobra roadster, loosely based on its chassis and drive-train. It was built for auto racing, specifically to take on Ferrari and its 250 GTO in the GT class. Just six Shelby Daytona Coupes were built between 1964 and 1965, as Shelby was reassigned to the Ford GT40 project to compete at the 24 hours of Le Mans, again to beat Ferrari in the highest level prototype class.
With the Shelby Daytona, Shelby became the first American constructor to win a title on the international scene at the FIA World Sports car Championship in 1965 and has recently been chosen for historic preservation as a significant vehicle in the history of auto racing. A real Shelby Daytona can set you back $7 million. This Factory Five is a nice alternative to have a rare iconic racing legend.
