This is a Continuation Series Shelby Daytona Coupe, built under license by Superformance and powered by a 550 HP Roush 427 V8 with all the goodies. At $185,000 as tested, it ain't cheap, but Superformance builds some of the highest quality recreation Shelby Cobras and Daytonas around, and this one has creature comforts like power windows, air conditioning, an independent rear suspension and upgraded Wilwood brakes. Suffice to say, it's an absolute blast.

Getting a Daytona Coupe for 1/10 the cost of a real Shelby Dayton Coupe that is still basically a brand new car with some additional comforts and better handling than the original is a hands down win.

Personally believe that this is by far and away the coolest car you've tested!

One of my favorite cars of all time. If the car had traction control and an e-diff like my Ferrari, I'd take it over the Ferrari. The problem with these cars though is you can't control the power and they don't handle as well. But they look amazing. My three favorites are "Dino, Ferrari 250 GTO and the 65 Shelby Daytona".

Always loved the Daytona's styling. Has anyone ever put a Shelby Daytona body in a wind tunnel to study the aerodynamics? I'm curious how much downforce they generate at the front and rear, and the Cd.

Matt, thank you for making this film. Again, it's a joy to watch you so thoroughly enjoy driving a wonderful machine. This model is a serious contender for a future purchase. I wonder if they could put a Voodoo in it. I would need the Tremec DCT due to a disability I have in my left leg. Your observations are incredibly helpful.

Great review, love the car, one of my favorites when I was a kid along with Cobra's and GT40's. Huge props for the way you handled the cyclists on the road, thank you.

Thanks for this vid Matt; this is my absolute dream car. My only gripe: I actually wish the car was a little louder because once you hear a *real Daytona you wish everything sounded like it.

Sounds like a movie. Awesome sound. Can you imagine a road trip in this car. Every moment would be an event.

I have so much love for these cars. I saw a couple of originals, and replicas, around the Nurburgring and Pebble Beach. So damn gorgeous.

Beautiful car! With it having side pipes I thought it would be louder then it is.

This is a pretty awesome car. Sure, 185k is a bit steep, but I easily see how it's worth it. Looks like a great GT car for those who want a vintage feel w/o vintage performance/reliability. They really did a good job here, love the creature comforts like AC, very bad-ass. Very cool car.

I think I'll run this video on a loop all afternoon, with just enough subwoofer to get the feel of the floorboards shaking. Love it!

I love my Factory Five replica. My son and I built it and painted it and have over 7000 miles on it already. Never been on a trailer! 550HP is just for car show one-upmanship, the Factory Five is just a little lighter than this one and runs great with 250-300 HP.
