Autofiends sample Superformance Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, GT40 MKI
Posted on Monday 12-01-2008
Autofiends scribe and Autoblog Sunday Drive alumni, Jonny Lieberman, is a lucky SOB. Not only did he get the chance to drive the Superformance replica of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, but he snagged some wheel time in a thoroughly uncivilized MKI GT40 powered by a fuel-injected Roush 427 IR motor... putting out 500 hp... to the wheels. The Daytona Coupe is even more devilishly delectable, with 556 hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque motivating the 3,000-pound coupe. If there was a recipe for our demise, it would look, sound and drive something like that. Needless to say, we're jealous, but that shouldn't stop you from reading the twofer review and ogling the drool-worthy pics by our very own Drew Phillips.
