Down in the Parking Garage: Superformance Shelby Daytona Coupe

Illustration for article titled Down in the Parking Garage: Superformance Shelby Daytona Coupe

Yesterday we waxed nostalgic about some awesome American racing greatness from the middle 1960s (both here and here). And while we're typically not the biggest booster of replicas, when done correct, they completely rule. Like this Superformance Brock Coupe. As promised, 1300ccsOfFury filled my gmail box with pics. Here's what he has to say:

After today's GT40 lovefest, I figured I should get myself motivated to head down to my building's parking garage and send you pictures of this. It's a Superformance Shelby Daytona Coupe replica that definitely looks (and sounds) the part...probably built better than the originals too. It's been sitting for awhile due to the winter weather, so it's covered in dust and fingerprints. I don't know whether to applaud the guy for leaving it visible for the world to see or to give him a wag of the finger for letting it get like that.

Anyways, the guy who owns this car has fantastic taste as previous residents of this spot were a Lotus Elise and loaned Lamborghini Gallardo. The interior is covered in sumptuous cross-stitched leather, but it was far too black inside and the lighting far too piss-poor for me to have any hope of getting a shot. There's also a brilliant red '61 Lincoln Continental convertible in the lower level of the garage, but it's under a cover. Enjoy the Daytona for now.

Signed, 1300ccsOfFury!

Sigh... Our garage has little more than a drill press and a busted-ass lawnmower. Here's to one day.

Ironically, Pete Brock (one of Australias most famous racing drivers) died a couple of years ago after he crashed one of these, which of course was designed by Peter Brock.
