The Carroll Shelby name is no secret in the world of car
enthusiasts. He has a lengthy list of vehicles that had roles in
their development. Some more famous than others and there is few
that would disagree that the Cobra of 1965 is the most prominent of
all his creations. The Shelby Cobra/Daytona was commissioned, built
and driven to do one thing - beat Ferrari in the 24hrs of Lemans.
After the huge success the Cobra was rolled out and continued to
receive significant praises for its power and style. Fast forward
to present times and people were disappointed with the sports cars
that were rolling out of the factories and the lack of excitement
and performance they offered. Entering the market were a handful of
companies building replicas or recreations of famous cars from the
