This illustration is of a very rare Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé from 1965. It was competing at the 73rd Goodwood Members Meeting. It was taking part in the Graham Hill Trophy which raced into the dusk.
Only six examples of the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé were built. Their purpose was to take on the Ferrari 250 GTO in the GT class. The car is based on the AC Cobra but has an aerodynamic body to combat the drag suffered on the long Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans by the roadster. The car achieved many class wins in 1964 and 1965. Shelby became the first American constructor to win a title on the international stage at the FIA World Sportscar Championship in 1965 with this car.
