The Shelby Daytona Coupe

Paying Attention: One of the greatest sports car ever designed was an American race car designed specifically to compete against the world-beating Ferrari 250 GTO. The car was the Shelby Daytona Cobra, and it was designed by a young Californian of impeccable design sense and terrific technical ability, Peter Brock. Brock is a type of “car guy” that only California produces, and his visionary design changed car design–not just racing car design–forever. We know Peter Brock here  at the Media Bunker; he wears his celebrity extremely well and he’s still creating and producing. Here, a short video that will give an appreciation of  just how special a car Pete Brock produced for and with Carroll Shelby and how well it’s basic design has survived. And, yes, it did it’s job, by winning the World Championship vs. Ferrari.
