Quick, off the top of your head name the greatest American road racing car? Go ahead, I’ll wait. You probably answered GT40, Mustang, Shelby Cobra, Corvette or the Shelby Daytona Coupe. Guess what if you answered with any of those you’re absolutely correct. Today we focus on the cars from Carol Shelby’s stable of complete and total awesomeness. Specifically the Cobra and Daytona Coupe. It is pure spectating bliss to watch one of these cars race. Absolute perfection when both are racing each other. Like was done at the 73rd Goodwood Members meeting. 2 American V8s thundering through the British twilight is absolutely perfect. I’d like to imagine Heaven sounds and looks a lot like this.
