Mark, Shelby still sells Daytona coupes brand new. They run just under 100 grand.
Superformance coupes; one of the companies he sued but lost. He left the country to evade debtors for years then came back and sued those who made cobras. Funny as the AC wasn't his design anyway.
What is sad is Superformance brought on Peter Brock to design the Daytona coupe. Peter Brock said I don't do kit cars. They told him they would not do it without him. The convinced him to come take a look.
When they ran the original Daytona coupes, Peter Brock never really finished his design work. They couldn't wait, they put the car into racing. Superformance gave Peter Brock the funding and backing to continue his Daytona Coupe R&D to make it the car he wanted to make it; and he did. They gave him the keys to do what ever he wanted. What he built is in essance the finally of the Peter Brock Daytona coupe doing 200mph their first time out in street trim and A/C. They called it Peter Brock's Coupe.
After Shelby sued the company, he later teamed up with him and now they call it the Shelby Coupe. It was a reptable company till Shelby got involved.
