The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe is a race car produced by Shelby. It first appeared in Gran Turismo 2, and after a long absence from the series, it returned in Gran Turismo 6. It is also available in Gran Turismo Sport, where it was added as part of Update 1.25, released on August 29, 2018.

In-game description

"Successfully improved the aerodynamics of the original Cobra. A legendary model that dominated races in its day."

The AC Cobra had dominated the racing scene of the 1960s, and its coupé version was the Shelby Cobra Coupe.

The strength of the base AC Cobra was in its lightweight body and large-displacement American V8. With quick handling and extreme acceleration performance, it was a top contender throughout the racing world. However, its open body was a detriment aerodynamically, and it did not do as well in high-speed tracks.

It especially lagged in the Le Mans 24-hour race with its long straightaway, and Shelby American, who had expanded to racing in Europe, was in need of a Cobra with better aerodynamics.

The coupé body, designed by famed designer Pete Brock, had a long nose to contain the 4.7 L V8, with a short deck ending soon after the rear tyres. It was full of cutting-edge aerodynamic designs including the 'coda tronca' design with its vertically cut-off rear end.

Thanks to this new body, the car, which had almost the same specs as the original AC Cobra (aside from some suspension improvements), achieved a top speed that was 18.6 mph faster than the original. Its racing performance was spectacular, showing incredible results in big events held in North America and GT class racing events in Europe within a short span of 2 years.

With its flowing coupé body and fabulous performance, along with its rarity, with only 6 cars ever being produced, the Shelby Cobra Coupe maintains popularity as a legend in racing history.
