Shelby Daytona Coupe

The legendary FIA GTIII championship winning Shelby Daytona Coupe

It seems the credit crunch is continuing to bite, with one of America’s most famous racing cars expecting to fetch a paltry $15m at auction in May.

The 1965 Shelby Daytona Cobra has an exceptional racing history, amongst other things being the very first American car to beat Ferrari in European competition, winning the FIA GTIII championship at Reims, France, in 1965.

The car will likely surpass the U.S. record of $5.5 million for a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake. This coupe could set a new world record if it brings in more than $11 million, which is the title-holding paid last year for a 1961 Ferrari California Spyder.

Chassis CSX2601 is one of only six examples of the Pete Brock-shelled, Ford-engined Cobra coupe ever built. As well as clinching the FIA World GT Championship for Shelby in the hands of Bob Bondurant, this car was used by one of its owners to do the 300-mile round trip each day to collect the receipts from his six petrol stations. In full race trim.The fully-restored car, which has been repainted in the livery it was wearing when it took the World Championship in Reims, will be sold in a live TV auction on the Discovery Channels HD Theatre on 15 May at 8pm EST.
