Those who worship at the altar of the Snake will kneel and genuflect, but was it ever a real car?
This prototype is the only 427 Cobra Daytona Coupe in existence. Following the successful campaign of the small block Cobra Daytona Coupes in 1964, Shelby’s Director of Special Projects Peter Brock penned new aerodynamic coachwork for the larger Mk II chassis. Built for Shelby American’s assault on LeMans in the 1965 race season, designer Peter Brock was convinced the Super Coupe would exceed 215 miles per hour on the Mulsanne Straight. This unbelievable automobile is eligible for every vintage competition event on the planet. It is the ultimate “Holy Grail” opportunity for the Shelby American enthusiast.
