Constructed by Steve Gilbey for a UK based collector, this exacting recreation of the famous World Championship winning Cobra Daytona Coupe is presented in Ferrari ‘Grigio Argento’ with twin black stripes and black wheels. Equipped with wooden rimmed Mota-Lita steering wheel, leather trimmed bucket seat, Lifeline 360 fire extinguisher, and Sparco six-point race harness. Unusually, this left-hand drive Cobra Daytona Coupe is registered as an AC and has been UK road registered ‘AH 6292’.
Upon completion the Cobra Daytona Coupe was entrusted to Pearsons Engineering to be race prepared for the owner to compete at the Goodwood 74th Members Meeting in 2016. Qualifying the Daytona Coupe in tenth place and finishing the race in a respectable ninth position. The only other races the car has ever entered are the 2016 Zandvoort Historic Grand Prix and the Brands Hatch Masters Festival 2016, so as can be expected the car is in extremely good order and very presentable. The engine, built by Steve Warrior has had circa ten hours of use and the gearbox is freshly rebuilt.
Offered today with a valid FIA Historic Technical Passport (HTP), the Cobra Daytona Coupe is eligible for a number of historic grids including the Masters Gentleman Drivers Series, Peter Auto’s Sixties Endurance, Spa 6 Hours, and the Goodwood Members Meeting.
The Cobra Daytona Coupe is UK taxes paid and is available for viewing in our SW London showroom by appointment.
