Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe

Winner, GT Class, 1965 World Manufacturer’s Championship

Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe

Driven by Bob Bondurant to victory at Le Mans in 1965, the Shelby Cobra Daytona (also referred to as the Daytona Coupe) was based on the FIA Shelby Cobra Roadster chassis. Winner of the 1965 World Manufacturer’s Championship in the GT class, beating Ferrari. Just six Daytona coupes were built in 1964 and1965, with Shelby focusing on the Ford GT40 project after that. Pete Brock designed the car's bodywork, while Bob Negstad designed the car's suspension. Negstad also designed the chassis and suspension for the GT40.
