Only 6 ever made. Originally they were standard Shelby Cobras that had been wrecked. Shelby then took the chassis and created these 6 new cars from them. Aside from the Ferrari GTO, this is without a doubt the most sought-after car in the world. Wanna hear a horrible story? Well, I'll tell ya anyway. After they were retired from racing they were sold off to private collectors for around $26,000 back in the 60's. One was purchased by a man and left to his wife when he died. The woman (who was literally crazy) knew what she had but would not sell it or even let anyone view the car. It just disappeared from sight. Several years later the crazy woman drowned and skinned her own pets before committing suicide and the Daytona Coupe was lost. Eventually, while scouting her old home, some people went to the barn out back and found it sitting there.....rusting. The car hadn't moved in 30 or so years! The tires had rotted off, the engine was shot, and things were growing and living inside the remains. Luckily the $6,000,000 car was snapped up quickly and is now being restored to it's original condition. But how can anyone be so stupid?! The stupid lady knew what she had, so why did she treat it the way she did? We cannot have that kind of stupidity infesting our society. Anyway, the car is in good hands now so we can all relax.
