Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe

owned by Mike McClusky, who is famous for his restoration of 3 of the 6 original Shelby Daytona Coupes, and for being the go-to when Carroll wanted some continuation cars made, as the price of the originals is over 7 million a piece

Only 6 units of the Cobra Daytona have been built by Shelby. The rarity of the car combined with the myth the car became winning the world championship ahead of the Ferrari 250 GTO, explains the price of the car today. For those who dream to own a Cobra Daytona and race it in the historic events, Shelby has allowed the building of 21 Cobra Daytona built by McCluskey. Caroll Shelby himself approached McCluskey when he decided to have a new team racing in vintage events with 5 Cobra Daytona continuation (the original ones having reached incredible prices). McCluskey has first built continuation Cobra Daytonas on original 289 Roadster chassis. He then built entire cars from scratch. These cars are fully compliant with the original specifications, the Shelby Registry confirming that "the continuation coupes are exact in their construction, right down to the number of rivets used".  http://www.finecars.cc/en/detail/car/56338/index.html
