Buy a Daytona Coupe from its original designer
Peter Brock, who penned the incredible Shelby Daytona Coupe in 1963, has returned to sell continuation versions of the iconic racer.
His company, Brock Racing Enterprises, has teamed with Shelby Legendary Cars to sell the Daytona Coupe, as well as a small-block Shelby Cobra, a big-block Cobra and GT40 continuation cars.
Just six of the Shelby Daytona Coupes were originally build, each of which is now worth millions. In 1999, Brock refined his 1960s design to create the Daytona Cobra Coupe series, built by the world’s largest builders of Cobras and GT40s, Superformance and Hi-Tech.
‘Peter Brock not only led the design of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, he helped race director Ken Miles turn it into dominant competitor that won the 1965 FIA sportscar world championship,’ said Lance Stander, CEO of Shelby Legendary Cars and Superformance. ‘It was an incredible achievement that has never been matched by any American carmaker since.’
All new Daytona Coupes are build by Superformance as Shelbys and receive a Shelby CSX9000 continuation serial number, as they are true to the spirit of the original 1960s era Coupe. However, they are reimagined as if they had stayed in production for the last 50 years.
‘It’s seldom that a designer has the opportunity to go back and refine one of their original designs,’ Brock said. ‘Jimmy Price and Superformance allowed me that opportunity in 1999 when I visited their amazing factory and saw what incredible quality was possible for a limited production version. Of all my personal cars, my Daytona Coupe is my favourite.’
The new Daytona Coupe is sold minus its engine and running gear for completion by a Legendary Cars dealer, such as Nevada-based BRE. Buyers can choose between several Ford engine options and a five- or six-speed transmission, as well as air-conditioning and other modern luxuries. Each one comes with a Shelby Certificate of Origin, Shelby serial number, Shelby badges, embroidered seats, kick plate and etched door handles – and now the Shelby dash plaque will include Peter Brock’s signature as well. The cars are eligible to be listed in the official Shelby Registry.
