Shelby Daytona Coupe 50th Anniversary
In 1964, Carroll Shelby commissioned Peter Brock to build a coupe version of the Cobra roadster. Having far better aerodynamics, it won eight of eleven races for the ‘65 season. This year is the 50th anniversary of that winning design, and Shelby American is producing a limited run of coupes in aluminum or fiberglass. A hand-fabricated tubular-steel frame with integrated roll cage is TIG welded for rigidity. The race-winning independent suspension is updated with modern coilover shocks and the same big brakes from the roadster. Power rack-and-pinion steering is connected to 18-inch Halibrand pin-drive wheels for a nostalgic look. Out back, a stainless 21-gallon fuel tank will allow you to race all day. Inside you will find Alcantara and leather along with power windows and air conditioning.
