Carroll Shelby presented with Superformance Cobra Daytona Coupe

The Shelby USA team presented their boss and legend Carroll Shelby with a custom Superformance Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. The gift was presented by Amy Boylan and the team at Shelby Automobiles in Las Vegas along with Lance Stander.

“It was fantastic to have the opportunity to honor Carroll Shelby with this special car,” said Stander. “We hope he enjoys driving it as much as we enjoyed giving it to him.”

Painted in Guardsman Blue just like the original cars, this Cobra Daytona Coupe features the number 98 that represents #2300 that Shelby owned up until 1999. Power comes from a Roush 427SR V8 that produces 480-hp and 515 lb-ft of torque. The car also gets paddle shifts developed by MasterShift for the Art Carr 2004R 4-Speed automatic transmission.

Superformance Cobra Daytona Coupe:

Recreating the Legend

Almost 40 years later, Superformance has re-created this nostalgic player in American racing history. The Coupe is a Carroll Shelby licensed product and was designed by some of the original team, including Peter Brock and Bob Negstad. The Coupe boasts amazingly sleek lines and a contoured body which is slightly larger than that of the original race car. The original suspension was further engineered and improved and the interior space was optimized for more room. Addding value to this impressive Daytona is the fact that it is also eligible for the Shelby American Automobile Club owners registry, capturing each chassis number as a part of American history.
