For Sale: 2008 Superformance Cobra in Irvine, California

Vehicle Description

The Superformance Coupe or Superformance Shelby Daytona Coupe is the only licensed continuation of the original Shelby Daytona coupe racing cars of the 1960s. The body was designed by Pete Brock (who designed the original race cars) and a chassis designed by Bob Negstad (who designed the original race chassis), it is viewed by many to be the most authentic modern continuation of the original 6 Shelby Daytona coupes. It is the only Shelby Daytona coupe approved and licensed by Shelby and the only Shelby Daytona coupe aside from the original half-dozen cars eligible for the Shelby Registry.

The car has a front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, with a 55R/45F weight distribution.
Roush Performance was the official supplier of engines for the coupe, and the majority of American owners choose a Roush engine based on a 351 Windsor block. The most sought after displacement for engines is obviously 427 cubic inches.

SPC0140 is painted in Corsa Red with White Twin Stripes. Then a Polished Roush 427IR with 8 Stack Individual Electronic Fuel Injection was shoehorned into the engine bay and mated to a Tremec 5 Speed Manual Transmission. The engine is dressed in Roush Polished Aluminum Valve Covers and features an Accusump oil accumulator system. A 5lb Safecraft fire suppression system is plumbed into the engine bay, driver footwell, and fuel tank.

SPC0140 has BRE (Brock Racing Enterprises) wheels, gauges, and polished stainless steel side pipes. It also has a Coupe Connections rear glass window and power steering pump. To stop the car, the standard brakes have been replaced with Brembo 6 piston front and 4 piston rear calipers. To protect the paint, Clear Bra Rock protection has been placed on the front nose and rear quarter of this beautiful Daytona Coupe.

To cap it all off, the glovebox door of SPC0140 carries the names of Peter Brock, Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Allen Grant, and Jim Price.

SPC0140 is titled as a 2011 Superformance and has 11,595 miles. SPC0140 is available for $169,950.
