Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe (1964 Le Mans GT Class Winner) - 1:43 Scale Model Car
A true American legend, the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe scarcely needs an introduction. As much a personal vendetta as it was a race car, the Daytona Coupe was Carroll Shelby's opening salvo in the Ford-Ferrari Wars of the 1960s. Developed to add high-speed aerodynamics to the potent Cobra platform, the Daytona Coupe was an instant winner, claiming GT-class victories at Sebring, Daytona, and a host of other significant races en route to taking the 1965 World Sportscar Championship. The Cobra Daytona's signature moment, however, came in its maiden 1964 season, when Dan Gurney and Bob Bondurant drove chassis number CSX2299 to the GT III win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where Pete Brock's wind-cheating design allowed the car to reach nearly 200 miles per hour on the Mulsanne Straight.
The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe has been a popular subject for model companies over the years, but few examples have been so beautifully executed as TSM's 1:43-scale resin replica of the 1964 Gurney/Bondurant car.
