The Daytona Coupe was built by Carroll Shelby to provide an aerodynamic body for the Cobra chassis. Most championship races were held on high speed tracks, where the brick-like aerodynamics of the Cobra was a huge disadvantage. Only six examples of the Daytona Coupe were constructed, making it one the rarest and most sought after vehicles in the world today.
The Cobra Kits Daytona Coupe is another of our hand crafted vehicles, also manufactured locally on the Gold Coast. We put the same focus on quality & customer satisfaction that goes into our Cobra’s.
The Daytona Coupe is perfect for someone looking for a serious performance coupe with ageless styling. It’s also a great option for someone looking for a roofed alternative to a Cobra. With the added comfort of air-conditioning and permanent roof, the Daytona is comfortable in all conditions. The Daytona Coupe also has the advantage of being able to house a half or full roll cage without compromising it’s look & styling. This, combined with the tilt-front & improved aerodynamics, makes for a perfect track day vehicle. And if you are after exclusivity, the Daytona Coupe provides this in bucket loads as there are very few of these unique vehicles on our roads.
Ease of Build
The Daytona Coupe enjoys the same ease of build we have attained with our Cobra replicas. Just like our Cobra, it’s also supplied as a complete, assembled body & chassis unit with all the mounting points for suspension, engine, transmission, steering, seat belts, brake components, clutch components, handbrake, windscreen etc. We also realise that supplying a build manual is only the start of supporting our Daytona customers ongoing build requirements; we provide both phone, email & face-to-face support, all with extended business hours (inc.
