For Sale: 1965 #Shelby Daytona Replica

 

After winning Le Mans in 1959, Carroll Shelby wanted to return and beat Enzo Ferrari with a car of his own design. Regrettably the Shelby Cobra created too much drag to achieve the top speeds on the Mulsanne Straight needed to beat Ferrari in the GT Class.

Enter the Daytona Coupe: with its aerodynamic hatchback shape and new top speed, it not only won the 24 Hours of Le Mans but also went on to make Shelby the first American constructor to win the FIA World Sportscar Championship in 1965.

This Factory Five replica beautifully pays homage to the legacy, and is owned by famous Emmy-nominated actor, musician, writer, producer and racing driver Frankie Muniz.
